The 23rd James Bond movie has come back to life. MGM made the announcement today that the as-yet untitled new 007 movie will begin filming in late 2011, for a November 9, 2012 release.
But something has changed.
It's not Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition, Jarhead, American Beauty) who remains onboard to direct the movie. And it's not the husband-and-wife producing duo of Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, who will help make the new spy movie. Instead, it looks like screenwriter Peter Morgan (Hereafter, The Queen) has exited the production. Instead, there's a new writer listed: John Logan (Any Given Sunday, The Aviator, Star Trek: Nemesis). Also listed as writers are Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, which marks their fifth outing as writers on a James Bond movie.
And just in case you were concerned, MGM reiterated that Daniel Craig would be back to play James Bond for his third time. No other actors were mentioned.
