James Bond 23 Gets Release Date
Posted 01.11.11 by reelz
It's official: 007 is back in service. After the studio's bankruptcy and the ensuing reorganization, MGM has set the date for the hotly anticipated next chapter in the Bond franchise. Deadline is reporting that Bond 23 will "go into production late in 2011" to be ready for worldwide release on November 9, 2012.
Daniel Craig will again play the legendary MI6 agent, with Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road, Jarhead) directing. Casting may also be underway for this turn's villain. Deadline also reports that the movie's producer has been to see Simon Russell Beale (The Gathering, My Week with Marilyn) twice. Earlier this year, Beale told a UK newspaper that "every actor wants to be in Bond [and] I'd love to be a baddie."
