Film studio MGM's financial difficulties have killed off any chance of going to see another James Bond film starring Danial Craig anytime soon. We reported awhile back that the 23 James Bond film had been delayed, but later reported that it seemed to be back on track when it was announced a 3D James Bond was on the cards. Now it's all taken a turn for the worse, with a press release from Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli stating that:
"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."
The next instalment of the iconic secret agent franchise with Daniel Craig in the lead was going to be released sometime in 2011 or 2012, but now the release date is anyone's guess. As we reported earlier, Peter Jackson's Hobbit movies have also been impacted by MGM's financial problems.
First Showing also reports that there is a possibility that directors/producers/brothers Tony and Ridley Scott may be interested in taking over MGM. Perhaps we'll see a James Bond film directed by Ridley or Tony Scott when the dust finally settles? If nothing else, it's a fascinating hypothesis.
