The next James Bond installment has been put on hold indefinitely due to financing problems. While Casino Royale brought in over $500 million worldwide, MGM is struggling to find a buyer so it can settle a multi-billion dollar debt. Bond 23 is nothing but rumor for now…but we can work with that!
The film starring steamy blond-Bond Daniel Craig is said to take place in New York and Sam Mendes is rumored to be directing, which would make him the first Oscar-winning director to take on Bond. Rachel Weisz may be taking on the role of Bond girl, adding a more cerebral side to the sexy siren role.
Craig currently is filming Dream House with Weisz. He was snapped shooting scenes for the film yesterday in Toronto. Let’s hope he’s soon on the set of the Bond film. Come on, of all people shouldn’t Bond be able to get out of this sticky situation?
