Commander Bond reports that the next Bond movie may lens as early as January 2004. Pinewood Studios has been reserved for filming from August 2003. If pre-production starts then, its likely to begin filming in January next year – a report which contradicts earlier comments by MGM CEO Alex Yemenidjian that producers were "going to take three years to do the next one". Its official though that scripting would begin in early 2003 with Neil Purvis and Robert Wade penning the screenplay. As previously stated, Pierce Brosnan will be back. Thanks to Dark Horizons for the heads up.
