Demonstrating supreme confidence in the direction of the film franchise, James Bond producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced earlier in the week that the 22nd movie of 007 will be released May 2, 2008. Of course, there’s still that 21st film still to come, as “Casino Royale” is set to hit theaters Nov. 17, marking the debut of Daniel Craig as Bond. Replacing Pierce Brosnan as 007, who had become quite popular as the secret agent, is no sure thing. But it seems clear that the producers are interested in giving a new start to the franchise, even going back to adapting the first book in the James Bond series to do so.
Craig has already been snagged for the 2008 film, which oddly enough has a locked in release date, but no title or possibly even a script. Well, that’s not really important anyway.
