Update: Here's what happened. Variety tried to be bloggers and failed and dug up a Total Film interview from January 2010 that they mistook for 2011. We were dumb enough to follow suit -- though so did half the Internet. Nothing to see here, please move on.

Update: Here's what happened. Variety tried to be bloggers and failed and dug up a Total Film interview from January 2010 that they mistook for 2011. We were dumb enough to follow suit -- though so did half the Internet. Nothing to see here, please move on.

It all looked so promising. Last fall, reports surfaced that MGM was aiming to have James Bond back in theaters by November 2012, with Kate Winslet mentioning offhand that Sam Mendes was still going to direct and composer David Arnold saying the film was "back on" after being stalled thanks to MGM's money woes. Well 007 fans, it appears that James Bond is still unable to defeat his new and biggest enemy: bankruptcy.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli told Total Film (via MI6), "Well, our timeline's a little up in the air what with the situation at MGM, so we have to be flexible. We just don't know enough about the situation to comment, but we know it's uncertain."
