Daniel Craig: 'Bond 23' Suspended Indefinitely!

Daniel Craig fans will not be happy!

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions just announced in a press release that the next James Bond movie has been delayed indefinitely.

“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,” they said 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.” (The film was originally set for a late 2011 or early 2012 release.)

Is this really about the money?

# 2

Does anyone really care?

…nope, no one cares. people aren’t talking about it. bond was long forgotten. give it 5-10 years and they’ll have a new bond, in a new movie. NEXT

Good! Last Bond film was a joke and Daniel Craig is NOT handsome. I’ve never been so disappointed. In the meantime, the powers in Hollywood can begin searching around for a new James Bond — hopefully one with dark hair and good skin. Oh yea, and taller.

Karma is a b*tch. And her name is Satsuki. He should dump that bad news money pit he calls a girlfriend.

# 6

No! :( The only Bond I love. Damn.

# 7

And Satsuki promptly dumps Daniel Craig.

# 8

James, I wonder if this was done to put pressure on MGM to get their act together?

I really hope this gets resolved quickly…

# 9

welll. interesting. I love Babs. Did I ever tell you guys that?

And HI Mendel…does MGM care about the franchise if they were gonna use bond as a bargaining chip to get more money from who ever was gonna buy them? does EON have to go with MGM?? and really–how many more months can the banks/credit companies defer and wait for their money? it will be resolved quickly and Babs just upped the anty!!!

to Guinness

“Babs just upped the anty!!!”

Yes, I get that feeling, too. It might be part of the wheeling and dealing that’s going on behind the scenes.

@Mendel: I hope that’s the case!

ahhhh-S a t s is maybe the luckiest ass-ist-ant–but not stupid, she ain’t dumpin nothin.

ssoooo, when Dan goes on his premiere trip for the House Menagerie and knowing reporters know about MGM (not Regis and perky Kelly) (but you know damn well Matt is gonna ask) and they ask Dan… so are you still under contract with Babs to be the hottie still??? WHatch gonna do when day come for you…

monday has not been good 4 me…corona is going down well. can you tell?? yeah, Dan has had a better day than me–even with this news.

Hi Mendel…guess what i am watching??

Too Bad! I hope Jude Law will be the next James Bond,

Noo! Daniel Craig started so well with Casino Royale, it’s a shame to end it after two movies only. He brought a new dimension to Bond and raised the bar very high for the next actor.

to Guinness

“and they ask Dan… so are you still under contract with Babs to be the hottie still??? WHatch gonna do when day come for you…”

He’ll probably asked about it left right and centre right now…but he’ll most likely give some evasive answer.
I think he probably knows what’s going on – I’d say Babs and Michael talked to him and Sam Mendes about the suspension.

“monday has not been good 4 me…corona is going down well. can you tell?? yeah, Dan has had a better day than me–even with this news.”

That sucks! Enjoy your corona!!!

“Hi Mendel…guess what i am watching??”

Sherlock? ;)
(and guess what I still haven’t seen…)

Ah, just found this:

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ukpress/article/ALeqM5gT-nkEJs1D0nP5WaiMNDqZsNJOkQ

“Daniel Craig, who was set to play 007 for the third time, said: “I have every confidence in Barbara and Michael’s decision and look forward to production resuming as quickly as possible.”

Bad news, IF it was believable.

This is all corporate poker.

Excellent Mendel! good 4 him. And yes, he was probably in on it the entire time…I would have Babs on my contact-emergency-dial/text-as-fast-as-possible list, especially if I had a signed contract and someone ELSE reneged!!! A very nice statement to forgo any questions by Matt-or Regis if he is conscious..”…ah, yes, Bond 23 happenin’ does depend upon many factors, especially in the economy the world is in right now, but I will go back to my original statement release when the shite hit the fan in the first place Matt, that i hope some one will get their head out of their cookie jar and put some money up so we can make more money.AND, I have no interest in putting my own Bond money up so that other Bonds can make money….although, it does sound like a lucrative idea…..”

Watching Open Season II, then we are watching “The goats that stare at George Clooney’s head” or something like that. Forget Sherlock. Just dont see Iron man–wholly crap. I don’t think i could talk for a while if that happens. maybe. or not.

LOL!

And you are watching the GOAT film? Let me know if it is any good – it certainly has one of the craziest titles in film history :)

@Mendel:

Of course he has to say that. What else would he say?

He hasn’t a clue what’s going to happen nor did Brozzer!

@Guinness: “Just dont see Iron man–wholly crap.”

Uh oh! You know the same guy that directed Iron Man is going to direct Cowboys and Aliens! Was Iron Man bad? I didn’t see it!

yes, well, it was a very nice comment and he had to say something–that is the point.

All men in this are hot and I can’t stop laughing…not sure if i am supposed to laugh.. but have you seen the X-Files? We watched every single episode and this is the same idea… I like it.

talk tomorrow…. Dan will get thru this–it will be messy, but I hope Bab “stands by her man”…

night night sweet dan dreams.

to Guinness

“Dan will get thru this–it will be messy, but I hope Bab “stands by her man”…

According to discussions on other forums (eg MI6), people wonder if Dan will stand by the Bond franchise, if the situation with MGM is not resolved soon.

I can’t see it though – I get the impression none of them would like to see the end of what has been a success story (even if QoS wasn’t considered as good as CR, it was still a commercial success).

Night night, and sweet Dan dreams nevertheless…

@Mendel: And I blame the failure of QOS on the director and the writers. Not Daniel. But of course EON was responsible for hiring the writers and director.

Daniel = money @ 04/19/2010 at 9:25 pm

@james:
James- I absolutely agree with you- Q of S was on the shoulders of Eon, the writers and the director. Not Daniel at all.
