2010: James Bond back in action again?

According to Access Hollywood, actor Daniel Craig told fans that Bond 23 starts up in late 2010.

An extra year will probably help MGM sort out their current financial situation, also.

As of now, we know that Bond 23 is being written by  Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and Peter Morgan, who penned “The Queen” and “Frost/Nixon”. David Arnold will return to compose his sixth Bond film score. However, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have yet to announce a director.

This is good news. Perhaps it’ll give the Bond team a chance to develop a fresh story, with fresh characters. Maybe they’ll use the time wisely to seek out an experienced director, too.

    Sounds like some good names attached so far.

    I really enjoyed the franchise relaunch with “Casino Royale,” but was disappointed by “Quantum of Solace” (I actually thought Craig was a better Bond in that movie, but the direction and editing were poor). Hopefully they get a more suitable director this time around. Marc Forster is talented, no doubt, but as the director of films like “The Kite Runner” he hardly had the credentials for an action movie, let alone James Bond.

    Also, I think it should be an unwritten rule that no Bond movie should be less than 120 minutes. 😉
