New Bond Movie Put Back To 2006

Plans to release the 21st JAMES BOND movie next year (05) have been scrapped, after MGM failed to find a director in time.

Fans of the superspy will now have to wait until 2006 for the next film - which may or may not feature PIERCE BROSNAN in the lead role.

The failure to sign up a director makes the original filming start date of mid-January 2005 almost impossible to meet, which has had a knock on effect on the scheduled release date of 18 November 2005.

Several names, including MATTHEW VAUGHN and PAUL McGUIGAN, have been linked with the director job.

Meanwhile, a plethora of leading men, including EWAN McGREGOR, DOUGRAY SCOTT, ORLANDO BLOOM and CLIVE OWEN, have been tipped to fill the suave secret agent's tuxedo should Brosnan fail to return.
