Sorry Pants

ITN reported on the Bond film cancellation the morning of July 4th.

The new James Bond film, due for release by 2012, has been cancelled due to a cash crisis.

Production crew were told in April the £132 million blockbuster, starring Daniel Craig, had been postponed amid “financial problems” at debt ridden movie studio MGM, which co-funded the film.

The studio has now confirmed that filming of Bond 23 has been axed completely – and it could be years before the secret agent is back on the big screen.

American Beauty director Sam Mendes had been lined up to direct the twenty-third film in the franchise.

But production company Eon have confirmed in a statement: “We do not know when development will resume and cannot comment further at this stage.”

WTF? Aren't Bond films a guaranteed solid ROI? We should pool our money together and make it happen.

I've only ever watched one Bond movie.
Its the one with Dolph Lundgren.
I think Christopher Walken was in it too, but I'm not sure.
All I know its got Dolph Lundgren in it.
