A statement from EON Productions yesterday stated that development of the 23rd Bond movie has been suspended, mostly due to the fact that their partner MGM is almost certainly going to be bankrupt. MGM was on the verge of bankruptcy last year and it’s situation hasn’t improved this year. The 23rd Bond movie was scheduled to come out in either 2011 or 2012 with Daniel Craig back as Bond and Sam Mendes directing. Quantum of Solace set up the evil organization named Quantum that would be like the SPECTRE of the Connery years but now we may not get to see what will happen with that plot set up. The Bond franchise isn’t permanently dead but if EON doesn’t find another partner it might be a long time before we see Bond back in action.
