Sony to distribute Bond 23

It’s official: Sony Pictures Entertainment will be distributing the next James Bond movie for MGM. The two studios announced in a joint press release today that the 23rd 007 movie, once again starring Daniel Craig, has been given a Nov. 9, 2012 release date, and that MGM and Sony will also be co-financing and distributing Bond 24 at some future date. Sony distributed the last two Bond films, but MGM’s recent restructuring had made the 007 series a jump ball, with several studios vying for distribution rights. “After successfully working on the re-launch of the James Bond franchise with Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, we could not be more proud or privileged to continue our association with Barbara Broccoli, Michael G. Wilson, Daniel Craig, and the talented teams at EON and MGM,” Sony co-chair Amy Pascal said in the statement.

  • rebecca

    Awesome!!! I don’t really care who distributes these movies, just as long as they are being made!!! I still have to wait a year and a half until Bond 23 comes out!!!! Guess I will just have to console myself with Timothy Dalton’s movies!!!

  • Nerwen Aldarion

    • Vince

      Changed my mind after actually watching the movies….CRAIG rocks! Bring on the Mendes Bond!

      • Daniel

    2006’s Casino Royale was awesome and well directed by Martin Cambell. Quantum of Solace sucked a&*, with horrible direction by Marc Forster, he’s just not meant to direct BOND. I would love if they chose a female to direct this Bond movie, perhaps Katherine Bigelow.

    All I want to say is, yes! Yes! Yes! You’re so right. I want to get behind this so much. You speak with so much authority, so much spirit, I feel as though you’ve definitely hit the nail on the head. Good job with this. Please keep brining us more because we need more of your type of blogger.

    Alright. Bring on Sam Mendes’ BOND 23. I think Mendes is superb with both character development and action. His (Mendes’) movies are a class all of their own. Yeah, “Quantum of Solace” was quite lacking and certainly not as good as “ROYALE”… but they could get BOND back on track with Mendes on board. Go Mendes! Good Luck to you all!

    I hope that they set this film in the U.S. and that they include several famous American actors. They have excluded the U.S. from the film series since Licence To Kill (1989) and the sequence in Casino Royale (2006) at Miami International Airport was not even filmed in the U.S. It would be incredible to see Daniel Craig

    Is Sam Mendes still directing? Or did he take a hike when this thing went into development hell?

  • Baco Noir

    Sam Mendes knows nothing about directing action. Sure, he can direct actors, but before Quantum, so could Marc Forster. Look at the mess he made of that. This will probably be a chop-a-rama editing travesty because that’s what directors who know nothing about directing/cutting action do. Bring back Martin Campbell (Casino Royale).

  • Mark

    Daniel Craig supported by new Bond-girl Berenice Marlohe, having similarities to Eva Green!, and Skyfall directed by Sam Mendes, sounds like the real Bond-flavour again!

  • Mark

    Combination of Eva Green and Berenice Marlohe would be perfect…Cannot get enough of Green in Casino Royale..even after 5 years!
