James Bond Delayed Indefinately
Bad news for Bond fans, I'm afraid. Due to financial woes, the franchise will be postponed until further notice. Producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have jointly stated, “Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development on BOND 23 indefinitely. We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of BOND 23.” Ouch. This could mean big trouble depending on how long this situation lasts. The talent behind the project will have to move on at some point and there's no telling who will be left to steer the reigns. It's sad to think that Hollywood's longest-running franchise (not to mention one of the most profitable) is having this much trouble getting financing. Oh well, I'm sure one way or another, we'll get our next Bond film eventually.
