EON Productions suspended active development on the next film in the Bond franchise in April due to MGM’s continued financial problems. Now it is being reported that the film has been axed, and that “it could be years” before the franchise continues.
The next film in the franchise was set to star Daniel Craig once again, with Sam Mendes directing from a script by Peter Morgan. But the paper reports that an insider claims, “Members of the production crew have been told the Bond film has been canned. There is a lot of bad feeling as a lot of time, money and hard work has already gone into this.”
