Bond 23 Finally Back on Track!
After some corporate wrangling, and legal to and fro, the Bond franchise is back on track, hoping to meet a November 2012 release date for the next film. (Which still has no name.) Most of the team lined up for this film, before it stalled more than a year ago, have signed up once again. And that includes actor Daniel Craig, director Sam Mendes, and the Eon team of Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
However, the long wait has forced them to lose the services of the two-time Oscar nominated screenwriter Peter Morgan (The Queen, Frost/Nixon). But don’t weep too many tears. He will be replaced by another double Oscar nominee John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator).
This four year drought represents the longest gap between films in the series featuring the same actor as Bond. We hope it’s worth the wait.
