With MGM expected to formally emerge from bankruptcy proceedings this month, and the recent news that MGM are aiming for a November 2012 release for the next Bond film, it is clear Bond 23 is edging closer to getting a greenlight.
In a recently interview composer David Arnold, has scored the last five James Bond films, revealed that he was recently informed the movie is “back on”, and he is “looking forward to a great script.”
Now that it looks like the next Bond is finally getting going, have you thought about what you’d like to do for the next score? And how do you hope Bond’s character, and the series continues to evolve?
“I haven’t thought about it yet. We only just got the news that we’re back on. But ‘there’s many a slip twixt cup and lip’ So I will keep quiet until I get a script and then start writing ideas. I just hope the next one is as good as my favorites, as I think everyone does. And I’m always interested in what Daniel Craig brings to the part. But like most things with movies, if it ain’t on the page etc… All I can say is that I’m looking forward to a great script for it, alongside every other Bond fan in the world!”
Daniel Craig has said on a number of occasions that he can’t wait to get going again, and Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition, Jarhead) will likely be sitting in the directors chair if all goes according to plan.
