Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo :frowning:

My friend warned me that this might happen, but it’s still disappointing.

The Bond franchise is too lucrative/famous to be simply left and forgotten about. I’m guessing that the company might be up for sale and someone will definitely snap it up because of Bond…

I agree that someone is bound to buy the franchise if MGM go bust. However, if it goes on for too long they may end up rebooting it (again). Dalton didn’t come back after the big gap in they early 90s after all.

A bloody shame, too. I love Dalton! Though I realise I may be in a minority…
I’m not saying I would prefer it to be him in Goldeneye, not at all, simply that one or even two more films with Tim after the epicness of Licence to Kill would have been awesome.
Indeed, I do hope Daniel Craig doesn’t go the same way…

Another fan of Dalton. :slight_smile:

I always thought he was under rated. License to Kill is one of my favourite Bond films.

:frowning: I don’t really think either Worthington or Bale would be any good as Bond. Besides which I really want to see another Daniel Craig Bond film. Casino Royale was brilliant. Quantum of Solice while a bit average, seemed to be building towards a showdown with Quantum. To miss out on that would be a shame.

Same. It’s the only one classified as 15, and therefore promises truckloads more awesome :smiley:

Lots of Bond news:

Jolly good.

It’s good to hear that it’s sounding a bit more positive on the Bond 23 front. :slight_smile:

Big good news for fans of MGM franchises:

The news we all wanted to hear:

Damn you James… beat me by a minute!!!

It’s because he’s the Mac. James Mac.

Release date announced: October 26th 2012 UK, two weeks ahead of the US :smiley:

Anyone care to speculate on story?
Given Sam Mendes’ resumé, I’m thinking that Bond will finally settle down to a suburban life with Moneypenny, suffering a strained marriage due to his alcoholism, repeated affairs, and pining for whats-her-name from Casino Royale. But then Bond is dragged back out of retirement as the only one who can stop his arch nemesis Blofeld (played by Kevin Spacey) and his evil plans to speed up the effects of global warming on Antartica.
It’s a bit out there, but I’ve love to be right (both for the sake of pride and a good film) :biggrin:
