Official Green Light
LOS ANGELES, CA (JANUARY 11, 2011) – Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions, together with Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum, Co-Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., today announced that the 23rd James Bond film will commence production in late 2011 for a worldwide release on November 9, 2012.
Daniel Craig will be returning as the legendary British secret agent, with Sam Mendes directing a screenplay written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan.
Didn't see another thread about this. But there is an official announcement that Bond 23 is officially a go. Sam Mendes of American Beauty fame is the director and of course their go to writers, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade who wrote such beauties as Die Another Day and World Is Not Enough the writing team leader is John Logan who wrote some really great movies. I guess they learned their mistake and like Casino Royal and Quantum of Solace being written by Paul Haggis this will hopefully be written by John Logan and Purvis and Wade will just be more in charge of the chornology of the character and have nothing to actually do with the story. I'm excited now that Sam Mendes is working on this with a great writer like Logan, its what made the first two Craig's Bond Films so good.
