Apparently, the production is being fast tracked for a June start in the hopes of a 2011 release, despite a possible sale of MGM. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are producing.
Quantum of Solace, the latest Bond film, was the largest moneymaker for the franchise, grossing $586 million worldwide.
Bond 23 will again star Daniel Craig. Franchise regulars Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are writing the script, this time with Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan.
