Where is Bond #23?

If you hadn't heard, Bond #23 was indefinitely postponed last month. As both Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes have moved on to other projects, it may be more than 4 years until the next Bond hits our screens.

But MGM's debt problems may not be the only thing holding filming back. Well, according to The Los Angeles Times, "creative discussions among the writers and producers have also hampered the process."

The script in itself has also had many problems. The original was written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. However, this was retooled by Peter Morgan, who's script has be retooled yet again by Mendes.

However, problems could be solved sooner than possible. According to The Wall Street Journal, Spyglass Studios is close to finalising a deal with MGM as near as this week, as long as MGM restructure their $4billion debt.

On the other hand, The Hollywood Reporter said that MGM, who are also producing The Hobbit, are facing a forced bankruptcy on 15th September, leading to an auction on which MGM could lose the rights to the bond series, which would be bad for them.
