Take 23: 'You and I have some
unfinished business'

The future of the franchise was looking uncertain last year as MGM battled with $3.7bn debt, leading to the indefinite postponment of Bond 23.

However, the studio emerged from bankruptcy last December, meaning 007 will be back next November.

Sam "American Beauty" Mendes will direct, although there are currently no details on the film's title or plot, Reuters notes. ®
