Another month passes, and more yet more uncertainty
is thrust upon the Bond 21 date start after reports of what
Samantha Bond said on the subject at a recent appearance.
member `007` attended the Collectamania 2003 show in the
UK this weekend and had the chance to speak to Miss Moneypenny
herself, Samantha Bond:
"I was asking her about when they are starting
Bond 21 and she mentioned the rumours
that Pinewood had been booked for the times listed on
MI6. She also talked about rumours that the production team
were wondering whether to hold off - so they could have
Pierce Brosnans last film in 2007, or whether to introduce
Brosnans successor in this interestingly numbered
year. There was also the idea that they may want to introduce
a new Bond for the 50th anniversary in 2012."
Last month Eon Productions
denied a December 2003 start rumour which emanated from
websites mis-reporting the Pinewood Studios booking of office
space. Pinewood Studios confirmed the booking of the offices
from August 2003 onwards, although this is done as a matter
of routine for preplanning.
Pierce Brosnan's timetable looks busier than ever, with
three films already in the pipeline, making a Bond 21 release
date of winter 2005 as early as fans can hope for.
In the weeks proceeding the release of "Die
Another Day", the possibility of a Jinx
movie franchise with Halle Berry was "leaked"
and the media ran with it ("I would do it in a heartbeat"
Since the media hype surrounding Bond has died down, news
on the Jinx project has been thin on the ground - until
E! Entertainment News reported yesterday that the script
for the Jinx movie is complete and Halle Berry will be working
on the movie once Catwoman is complete.
