New James Bond Movie to Hit Theaters…

…indefinitely.

Due to the continued issues that MGM is plagued with – namely, finding someone to buy their studio for a price close to what they are asking for – the new James Bond movie has officially been shelved.

They wanted to get it ready for a 2011 release; but with no positive moves made to sell the studio and its library, a new movie wouldn’t be out until 2012 – if that!

Sam Mendes was going to be directing the next Bond.  With it being put to the side with no timetable to start it back up, there’s no guarentee he’d even be available once it’s time to move forward.

While Casino Royale (a Bond reboot, so to speak) did amazingly well with providing a fresh new start to the franchise, the follow-up Quantum of Solace didn’t live up to expectations.  In fact, the the most expensive movie made per number of minutes (the movie cost $2 million per minute of screentime) did not make as much as they would have hoped.
