Despite all types of major MGM financial issues, the studio plans to release Bond 23 in November 2012.
The highly-anticipated James Bond movie will mark the second major film out of the newly-opened gate for MGM, following The Hobbit, which begins filming in February.
For those of you wondering how the recently bankrupt studio plans to make a high-budget, James Bond movie, they're currently seeking a partner to fund the film, but based on the deal the studio will retain the film's rights.
If it works out, and they work out all of their financial woes, they plan to release future Bond films once every two years, which will be fully funded and owned by MGM.
No word at the moment on whether or not Sam Mendes is still going to direct the film or if Daniel Craig will return as Bond…but last we heard, Craig was enthusiastic about the possibility of reprising the role.
Are U excited for another Bond movie? Do U think MGM will find the funding to make this happen?
