EON Prods. toppers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli jointly announced Monday that they’ve put plans on hold for the next Bond pic.
“Due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio, we have suspended development on ‘Bond 23′ indefinitely,” the duo said in a statement. “We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of ‘Bond 23.’”
It was the first statement from Wilson and Broccoli since last June, when the producers jointly dsiclosed with MGM that Peter Morgan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were writing the script for the film, which does not have a director officially attached yet. Purvis and Wade most recently worked on “Quantum of Solace” and “Casino Royale.”
