After weeks and weeks of more or less silence regarding what 007 fans can expect from the 23rd James Bond adventure, a new interview with screenwriter Peter Morgan reveals some slight bits of information.
Currently situated in Vienna, Austria, Morgan was at work on the Bond 23 script from July to October of this year.
While cautioning to the local press that he couldn’t discuss a great deal about the film, he did describe it as ‘a shocking story’.
Morgan further described his coming to terms with the levels of excitement and anticipation that a new James Bond film creates. He states: ‘There is a level of hysteria that I haven’t seen before. [Bond] is a magnet for publicity—everyone wants to know what is going on with the new film.’
Unfortunately, it was also revealed that work on Daniel Craig’s third 007 outing has been put on hold until February 2010 as a result of the ongoing sale of the MGM studio.
While no specific release date has been announced by Eon Productions, it is strongly expected that Bond 23 will arrive in theatres sometime in late 2011. As previously reported on CommanderBond.net, Craig was quoted as saying that work is expected to commence in late 2010 in order to be ready for a 2011 release. This timeline was further supported by additional comments from Dame Judi Dench.
