James Bond will return in 2012-possibly
 
Quote:

Wrangling over the fate of the debt-ridden studio had thrown its plans to make new movies, including the next 007 film, into disarray.

The 23rd Bond movie had been due for release in 2012, the 50th anniversary of Ian Fleming's spy character's first outing in Dr No.


However, producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said earlier this year that work had been halted indefinitely because of uncertainty about MGM's future.

Craig backed the producers' decision but it left plans for him to reprise the role in limbo. He received strong reviews for his first two Bond outings in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

Now MGM is on the verge of a deal with Spyglass Entertainment, which is run by Hollywood film producers Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, and was responsible for films including The Sixth Sense and Memoirs of a Geisha. The deal is expected to go through within days and Spyglass would be likely to concentrate on pushing through the Bond and Hobbit movies.

Holding out hope...but man if it does return I hope Mendes is still the director and they retain the script they had before this mess happened. Also 2012 is going to be LOADED for films. All through the year.

So in this movie Bond will discover that Quantum is actually the good guy and that they've been trying to figure out how to stop the 2012 apocalypse from happening?

The world will end in 2012... possibly.

I hope this is true. If so, 2012 will be a packed year. If it is the end of the world, it'll certainly go out with a bang.

Holding out hope with my fingers crossed.

The Los Angeles Times claims that there were long-running creative issues (Broccoli and Wilson weren't happy with Mendes' re-write of Peter Morgan's script, which was a rewrite of Purvis & Wade's first crack at the job) that may have derailed the project even if funding were in place.
