I was so looking forward to the next movie.
Production Suspended on Next Bond Film
You can call him Bond — James Bond — but don’t bother calling him at the office, because Agent 007 is being suspended from duty. The producers of the James Bond film franchise, which since 1962 has yielded 22 movies adapted from or inspired by Ian Fleming’s stories, said they were halting work on a 23rd Bond film while they awaited the possible auction of MGM, the studio that releases the movies. In a statement reported by Reuters, the producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said, “Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development on Bond 23 indefinitely.” The last two movies in the franchise, “Casino Royale” (2006) and “Quantum of Solace” (2008), which starred Daniel Craig, right, as Bond, sold a total of nearly $1.2 billion in tickets worldwide.
