Here we go again...At last !

MGM announced today , January , tuesday the 11th of 2011, that "BOND 23" is set to go into production in late 2011.
Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions, together with Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, the Co-Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., today announced that the 23rd James Bond film will have a worldwide release on November 9, 2012.

Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent ( sigh... ) , with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
That script is being kept under wraps - and likely to be very different from the synopsis submitted earler last year by Peter Morgan, then attached to the production .

As we all know , the reason for the 007 delay is because it took that long for MGM's future to sort itself out what with the failed auction sale of the studio, then the pre-packaged bankruptcy getting approval, and eventually Spyglass taking over studio filmmaking.

MGM, which received a cash infusion last month of $500 million, had been expected to move quickly to lock down Craig and Mendes for the project in order to take advantage of the 50th anniversary of the Bond franchise.

Last but not least , MGM has already been working up plans for a 2012 yearlong commemoration of the golden anniversary of the first Bond pic, 1962's "Doctor No." ( this being the actual quotation of the Variety article dedicated to that annoucement . ) . Better warm up the Visa card I'd say ...
