007 producers confident Bond 23 will move ahead soon
James Bond film producer Michael G. Wilson quashed rumours that the 23rd 007 film has been cancelled at the London launch of Activision’s Blood Stone this week.
While Wilson refused to be drawn on MGM’s financial woes – the reason behind production on Bond 23 stalling – the long-time producer told IGN UK, “Both Barbara [Broccoli, Wilson’s producing partner] and I are convinced that we’ll be bringing you another Bond film soon.”
Speculation that Bond 23 had been outright cancelled moved through the press earlier this month when the Daily Mirror published an article claiming production staff on the film had been given their marching orders.
However, the trade press were quick to dismiss the report, with a number of outlets claiming Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes remain committed to making Bond 23.
Development on the latest James Bond film has been suspended since April 2010.
