No -  TND is a great 007 movie, as long as you ignore the You Only Live Twice plot they reused... again.

we still no closer to seeing the real james bond on screen-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Bond_(character)

'The literary James Bond is reserved in his licensed killing, sometimes disobeying kill orders if the mission might be accomplished otherwise, as in "The Living Daylights" where he makes a last-second decision to disobey orders and not kill an assassin. Instead, he shoots the assassin's gun and accomplishes the mission. Later, he feels so strongly about that decision that he hopes M will fire him for it. In the novel Goldfinger, James Bond is haunted by memories of a Mexican gunman he killed with bare hands days earlier. There are Fleming works in which Bond does not kill anyone. Bond hates those who kill non-combatants, especially women.

''It was part of his profession to kill people. He had never liked doing it and when he had to kill he did it as well as he knew how and forgot about it. As a secret agent who held the rare Double-O prefix the licence to kill in the Secret Service it was his duty to be as cool about death as a surgeon. If it happened, it happened. Regret was unprofessional worse, it was a death-watch beetle in the soul." Goldfinger, chapter 1: "Reflections in a Double Bourbon" '

Just heard that Lady Gaga and Michael Buble have both been asked to submit their own bond song, clearly 2 very different types of song which is interesting. I think both could be very good, if Gaga sticks along the Bad Romance lines i really like that song and i feel it does sort of have a bond feel going for it so hears hoping we don't get another 'die another day'. As for buble if they get it right it would be nice to get a jazzy 50s number again.
The Song is always integral i feel to the movie and i have high hopes this time around

Of course my ideal choice would be muse

why are papers running stories about casting and soundtracks when we don't even know if the film is being made yet? Obviously it will be but with MGM in a state of flux don't expect anything concrete for the next six months at least.

Well if these stories are coming from tabloids then it should be pretty obvious that they're bollocks. The Rachel Weisz one could be credible but for some reason feels like a stunt casting story - maybe because I'm sure she's radically different from what most of us expect from a Blofeld level Bond villain. I'd still love to see some ultimate camera wink by having the head of Quantum played by......Sean Connery.

'Speechless' on Gaga's the Fame Monster sounds VERY like an 'audition' for an older school type Bond theme. And unless she totally loses it like Amy Winehouse, her more 'ballady' approach to the vocal would fit the gig pretty neatly.

Yeah, that's bad news but not totally unexpected considering MGM haven't been able to officially greenlight The Hobbit either. They'll find a way though as Bond and The Hobbit are almost guaranteed to bring in megabucks at the box office so they're too valuable to put on hiatus for too long - especially in The Hobbit's case considering how much pre-production work has already been done.

As far as Bond goes though a bit longer is a good thing in a way as the producers can still continue with Sam Mendes and the writers (if they all stay attached during this break) to further develope and really tighten up the script. It's better than rushing into production with a weak or unfinished shooting script isn't it? Question is whether Sam will now vacate to work on other stuff or stay in the seat to wait it out whilst also moving ahead with other projects that are ready to go now.

damn m.g.m and their business problems.
this has been a bleeding wound for over 30 years and shame the broccolis' admirable loyalty to a fault to a failing company is hurting the 007 franchise again.

Bloody hell that didn't take long - thankfully it's all premature scuttlebutt though as Craig is still under contract for another film (maybe two? can't remember if he has a 3 or 4 film contract) and neither he or the producers have mentioned recasting.

Bit of a shit situation though; I wasn't that taken with Quantum of Solace but really like Craig as Bond and look forward to what the Quantum organisation has in store for MI6 next. Sam Mendes is an interesting choice for director and I'm hoping he remains attached while this is being sorted out - at least this should give the producers more time to get a tight script together.

With Bond heading for a yet another lengthy hiatus due to financial problems behind the scenes, is anybody else wishing that the franchise was taken over by another studio who could get their house in order?

An emphatic yes! Well, providing it isn't Fox as they have trouble with their franchises these days because of micromanagement and shooting for the lowest common denominator....unless the filmmakers they work with have the surname Cameron anyway.

I expect Sony is ready to jump in and snatch those rights seeing as they've been involved with Bond films for a while anyway. Then again Warner Bros will need a new cash cow after Harry Potter ends considering the superhero bubble could burst at any time and their DC comics characters would therefore lose audience share.

I know im in the minority here but im hoping that this delay will be long enough to convince Craig to walk and for the series to be rebooted again.This time to be more like the classic traditional take on the character(smooth,suave,debonair womaniser) rather than the thugish portrayal weve had to endure over the last two movies.

I think it's more and more likely we've seen the end of Craig for better or worse. It'll be at least 3 or 4 years before the franchise sees the light of day again, if at all and he'll be too old by then. Not unlike Brosnan in Die Another Day.

Wow didn't see that coming Silas

I think Hood's right that this delay could well end Craig's tenure as Bond though if it drags out too long due to possible age concerns. I have to admit that I felt Brosnan went one Bond too many despite being in great shape for his age his was definitely showing it in Die Another Day....still at least he didn't go as far as Moore.

Also depending on who takes the rights Craig's contract for two more films may be cancelled or whatever if the new studio home want to go in a different direction and thereby require a different leading man. If that happens don't start celebrating Silas because we all know there's a chance that some moron exec will think a teen Bond in Spy School is a good idea for a series reboot....then you'll end up with Freddie Highmore as Tom Rothman's James Bond.

On the other hand I'd expect the powers that be will want to get this resolved asap because Bond and The Hobbit are two enourmous cash cows at stake - studios just won't want to hang on too long because they're losing money by not making the films. Either MGM will just buckle and accept whatever's offered or the bidding studios will crack and up their offers to what MGM are asking.

I hope Craig stays and I like this incarnation of the Bond universe because of how the films plots carry onto the next film etc. It's different from what went before and I think it works!

Likewise but even if he does leave now I think his films are a great addition to the series (although QoS was very hit and miss overall) and as the second was a direct sequel story it makes them almost standalone so in a way it could be seen as a logical step to change direction.

I always assumed the idea would be to tie up his run with his third flick. Perhaps going after the Quantim orginisation ? Would have been a nice companion trilogy to the Bourne series.

I would like a third Craig film, just to wrap up the arc that the producers and writers are pursuing. If they want to recast after that, it'll be shame but I understand with the current financial constraints.
