Dalton Confident Bond Will Return

TIMOTHY DALTON is adamant JAMES BOND will enjoy another blockbuster outing on the big-screen - because 007 is too popular with movie fans for a recent bankruptcy case to spell the end of the franchise.
Bosses at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, the company behind the spy films, have struck a deal with a finance company to save the Hollywood studio amid uncontrollable, spiralling debts.
And Dalton - who played Bond in two movies in the late 1980s - insists the fictional superspy will return to cinemas, as the franchise is too lucrative to scrap.
He tells Entertainment Weekly, "I'm not speaking as a spokesman for them, of course, but I have to believe that Bond, a big moneymaker for so many years, will get back on its feet. Someone will give it a platform, a foundation on which it can be made again, because it will be in everybody's interest.
"It will make money, they do make money, they always make money, and of course, they provide tremendous entertainment for so many people. It's a horrible situation for everybody... It brings a big hole into that universe. It's sad that there's another hiatus, because I thought the first 25 minutes of Daniel (Craig)'s first (Bond) movie was the best 25 minutes I've seen in any Bond movie. I thought it was a fantastic opening."
