Thanks a lot, recession! Now we have no idea when the next James Bond movie will be coming out! There have been rumors flying that Bond 23 would shoot this year, and that it would shot in 3D!
Well you can put your fantasies on hold for the moment, because pre-production has been halted indefinitely.
MGM confirmed the news, saying, “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.”
Maybe this has something to do with the fact that MGM is in $3.7 billion debt! They’re pretty far in the hole! Maybe if they didn’t have to pay their actors such astronomical salaries they’d be in better shape.
