EON producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, finally released from the constraints of MGM's bankruptcy, are free to commit to going forward with James Bond 23, which has been stalled while they waited for MGM to come out of its financial quagmire. New MGM co-chairs Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum say the movie will start shooting in late 2011 for a worldwide release on November 9, 2012.

Now Daniel Craig can slot the film into his frenetic shooting schedule, including the sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; Brit director Sam Mendes is still in the director's chair. Screenwriter Peter Morgan (Hereafter) left the film after delivering a treatment off his original idea; Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and John Logan took over the task of fashioning a workable James Bond. "He's a creature of the Cold War," says Morgan (who talks about the challenges of keeping the franchise fresh here and below). "I struggle to believe that a British secret agent is still saving the world." But Morgan thinks Mendes is "smart...The holy grail is to combine thought and action."

Broccoli and Wilson's Danjaq co-own the Bond film and global merchandising rights with MGM. Eon is the UK company that produces the films.
