MGM Strikes Deal For Next James Bond Film


MGM has finally struck a deal that will allow the 23rd James Bond film to start shooting, and in time for a November 2012 release at that!

The financially strapped studio filed for bankruptcy yesterday, but revealed that a partner with a 50 percent stake in the twenty-third film will foot all the production costs. MGM hopes to get full ownership back with subsequent Bond flicks.

However, now that that’s taken care, a number of replacements may have to take place due to the long delay. Whether director Sam Mendes is still on board to helm a script is up in the air at the moment, and as for Daniel Craig, he went and signed up for ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ — and its two sequels — along with ‘The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn’ and the thriller ‘Dream House.’

On top of all that, MGM is also looking for a third party to cover its $265 million.
