Has MGM Cancelled James Bond 23?
" In a story from AintItCoolNews, it looks as if James Bond 23 is not be happening. Everybody knows that MGM is in a bad financial situation but now that site is now saying that the studio has cancelled the project.
Apparently all development on the next James Bond flick is dead. They've actually fucked MGM up so much that right now, they've canned development of a new James Bond film.
Mirror has substantiated this story saying:
But now it has confirmed the movie has been axed - and it could be years before the secret agent with a licence to kill is back on the big screen.
EON Productions, the company behind the film has also supported this report.
"We do not know when development will resume and cannot comment further at this stage."
It seems that if all this is true an announcement of some sort will be made soon. This franchise appears to be too financially lucrative to just die like this. Afterall, the worldwide box office receipts for all the films total over $5 billion dollars.
