Bond 23 Delayed "Indefinitely"

Quote:
EON productions’ Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli put out a joint statement today (grabbed by Coming Soon) that will stab at the heart of all Bond fans waiting for the next installment.
"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. We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of the film."

these new bond films seem to go against everything that people loved about bond in the first place: hot chicks, insane gadgets, and super villains. the last two films had the hot chicks, but fell short on the other two. if i want gritty, realistic action with a scarred, wounded, vengeance seeking protagonist, i'll watch the bourne movies, because they did it infinitely better.

Have you even seen all the other Bond films to understand the different variations they've taken on the character throughout it's history?

I long for the glorious days of Pierce Brosnan and hotels made of ice and artificial suns.

mostly just the brosnan and connery movies. im just saying it seems like the slightly more fantastical bond films are the ones that work the best for his character. i know theres some like For Your Eyes Only where revenge is more of a theme and some dude is trapped in a pressurized chamber which is then rapidly decompressed, causing him to explode.

Which I guess is why Casino Royale is the best received modern Bond film, if not of all time...

Casino Royale is superior to all of the Brosnan films and stands next to Connery's best films as the finest in the series.

Bookmaker William Hill has made the 33-year-old 5/2 favourite to take over the role should Daniel Craig not return for his third instalment in the series.

He was one of the actors considered for Casino Royale, so they may go back to him. Hope they don't.

That would be so shitty. That guy couldn't act his way out of a paper bag.
