Daniel Craig: The Death Of James Bond EW Cover

Daniel Craig, as James Bond, takes the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly featuring questions swirling around the 007 franchise.

In April, it was announced that the much anticipated Bond 23 was to be delayed indefinitely following financial troubles at MGM, the production company that produces the Bond films.

In the meantime, the studio has been up for sale since November but has had no serious buyers as of yet. With the studio in trouble, it doesn’t look like there will be a new Bond film anytime soon. According to the magazine, the last time an ‘indefinite’ hold like this happened, it took 6 years to bring the franchise back.

Could this be the end of James Bond?

    It’s a shame that the Twilight Saga, those awful Step Up films and terrible Nicholas Sparks adaptations get to carry on, but not 007!

    @Alaia: That’s unfair, seeing how the Bond seroes has produced over 20 sequels. It’s about time this shuts down.

    Reboot was a great success. Stagnation means the death.

    @facts: They are not just ‘sequels’, it is a series. I know you could argue the Twilight Saga is a series too, but they are absolutely horrid. No wonder the films suck, too.

    This is pure bull sh*T, come on maaannn! I grew up on bond & that’s how I got the ladies. It taught me how to compose myself as a 15 yr old young man the best bonds in exact order: Sean Connery, Pierce Bronsan, and Daniel Craig.

    No, this couldn’t be the end of James Bond… They will somehow solve their problems and I’m sure it won’t be that long before the next one.

    Bond movies have become irrelevant. It’s birth was the product of the pre-cold war period. The recent Bond movies changed its familiar theme and focused on some international criminal deals gone bad. A new series could do just as well, Jason Bourne did it. Consent to Kill and its Mitch Rapp books could do even better. Sure Bond got it’s name recognizion but it has morphed into just another spy movie. No major loss if it never returns.

    @Alaia:
    Seriously? I will admit that the Step Ups are bad, even if the dancing is good. But the Twilight Saga is AMAZING. And did you even see Quantum of Solace? That was one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.

    Even with MGM’s difficulties looming, it wasn’t supposed to turn out like this. When Mendes and Morgan came on to the film early in the year, MGM officials were quietly hoping the movie would be in production in the summer, for a release in 2011.

    MGM declined comment. A call to EON’s office in London was not returned, and the Santa Monica office of EON holding company Danjaq also yielded no comment.
    ——————————————————————————–
    Hm, my bet was based on that filming would be in the summer, I lost this bet but now its revealed that they were really going to make Bond in the summer….. wow.
    I was close to win it but MGM could not finance for the first time….

    News about dead Bond hurt Babs Broccoli but she was offered financial help by the British investors so she should to shake hands with them and receive it.
