Could James Bond be back in theaters by 2012?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: There has been a lot of talk about the busy 2011 film schedule, with multiple tent poles competing for eyeballs (and dollars).

Next year, alone, Marvel will release “Thor” and “Captain America” pictures, Jon Favreau’s got “Cowboys and Aliens,” Todd Phillips finds the cure for “Hangover 2,” Johnny Depp sets sail in a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean,” a younger “X-Men” class begins, “Cars 2” revs up, Michael Bay unleashes “Transformers: Dark of the Moon,” and “Harry Potter” comes to an explosive conclusion.

And those are just the supposed summer blockbusters.

But look ahead to 2012, and you’ll see that the release schedule is filling up, as well. There’ going to be a “Star Trek” sequel in theaters. Andrew Stanton’s got “John Carter of Mars.” Judd Apatow plans a new comedy. Marc Webb’s “Spider-Man” reboot has staked out July 4, and Chris Nolan plans to release his third (and final) “Batman” film.

This morning, we’re hearing another familiar face could be in theaters that year. That would be Bond. James Bond.

Yes, in bankruptcy filings, MGM announced that it planned to have the 23rd Bond film in theaters by November 2012, with new 007 adventures released every two years. Bloomberg reports that the studio would own half of the Bond film, with an “equal partner” paying the production costs.

That’s great news for current Bond Daniel Craig, though it could play hell with his schedule if David Fincher’s “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” adaptation catches on and leads to the two sequels he’d need to film to complete the literary trilogy. But that’s putting the cart before the horse. For now, it sounds like we’ll have a new Bond in 2012. Stay tuned for details as they emerge.
