    Default Money troubles force MGM to suspend development of the next James Bond film

    Tomorrow Just Died for James Bond
    Today 6:35 PM PDT by Natalie Finn


    Sony Pictures

    The economy has managed to do what dozens of nefarious villains with lasers and deadly sea animals could never accomplish: Kill James Bond.

    MGM announced Monday that the 23rd 007 film is nothing but a pipe dream right now, thanks to the studio's shaky financial situation.

    "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," Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said in a joint statement. "We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of BOND 23."

    So unless another studio steps in (which is very likely, considering this is James Bond, after all) it's time to look forward to Daniel Craig as Red Rackham in The Adventures of Tin-Tin.

    Someone else will step in, a proven franchise with a good box office track record.

    James Bond will live. Craig is a great Bond and he's put new life into a stale franchise.

    No, I love Daniel Craig! He brought the awesome back to Bond! I didnt care at all until 'Casino Royale' came out!

    I'm sure they'll find the cash to make the next one. I think he's a good Bond but the last movie was not so great.

    I can agree with you there, the last film was trash. But I still have high hopes, 'Casino Royale' was amazing.

    Daniel Craig is a lip purser like Alec Baldwin. The jaw flexing is sort of hot in it's maleness but pursing of lips is to metro .....

    I haven't seen Quantum of Solace yet, but Casino Royale definitely didn't suck.

    Quantum Of Solace sucked. Casino Royale was mindblowingly good but I almost wish they didnt make that pile of trash follow up.

    I heard Quantum didn't live up to Casino. I guess I'll have to check Quantum out on YouTube before I go out and buy it.

    Quantum wasn't as good as Casino Royale but it was still far better than half of the crap the franchise has put out (I say this as a huge fan regardless).

    There's no way the Broccoli family will let this franchise die. No way. They'll shop it around to other studios. They aren't going to let Danny go either. He completely redefined Bond, for the better and it has nothing to do with his blue mankini.
