"Bond 22" Shifting to November 7, 2008 Release Target

Columbia Pictures has pushed back the plan to release "Bond 22" from original date of May 2, 2008 to November 7, 2008.

Fans of 007 sure have to wait a little longer to see "Bond 22" on theaters. Columbia Pictures has just announced that the plan to release the film has moved from the original date of May 2, 2008 to November 7 of the same year, The Hollywood Reporter has reported.

While this may bring disappointment to the series' followers, the new date on the other hand subsequently gives the filmmakers the standard two years to complete the next installment, the usual time between Bond movies. "Eighteen months was a very short window," Sony Pictures Entertainment vice chairman Jeff Blake remarked. "We're going to stay the course."

Already under pre-production work, "Bond 22" will be the 22nd official film in the James Bond franchise and the second to star as the secret agent. Sony along with partners MGM and EON Productions are currently in search for a new director to helm the project following the departure of "Notting Hill" director Roger Michell last month.
