Producers confident work on Bond 23 will resume soon
Back in April, EON Productions announced that work on the 23rd James Bond film ('Bond 23') was indefinitely suspended
due to the financial uncertainty surrounding the beleaguered studio MGM.
When co-producer Michael G. Wilson unveiled the new 007 videogame "Blood Stone
" in central London today, he gave some encouraging, if brief, news to fans.
"Both Barbara [Broccoli] and I are convinced that we'll be bringing you another Bond film soon", he told the audience.
After unveiling Activision's new game, which stars Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Joss Stone, Wilson cheekily remarked: "I wish we were launching a movie."
Recent tabloid reports the the film had been 'canned' were shot down by the trades
. It is understood that both Daniel Craig and would-be director Sam Mendes are in a holding pattern
, ready, willing and eager to get started when the green light comes.
MGM secured a further debt payment extension this week
, valid through September, whilst they seek a buyer or rescue package.
