NEXT BOND MOVIE COMING IN ABOUT 3 YEARS

The James Bond franchise is clearly no assembly-line product. If you had imagined that after one script had been approved and put into development, another one would have quickly been spawned, you’d be wrong. MGM on Tuesday disclosed that only now has it begun developing the screenplay for Bond #24 and that it may not be ready to be produced for years. Speaking during a conference call with investors and media, MGM Chairman/CEO Gary Barber said the studio expects to release the film “within the next three years.” He said that the studio is currently looking for a director to replace Sam Mendes, who directed last year’s blockbuster Skyfall. Daniel Craig has already agreed to star as Bond in the next two installments.
