Producers aim to reboot the £4billion film franchise by turning back the clock to its original time period following the departure of Daniel Craig. Last week he declared he would rather slash his wrists than be 007 again after Spectre, his fourth Bond film, is released later this month. Studio bosses have asked TV’s award-winning Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner to head a new team to oversee Bond’s return to his heyday 1960s.
An MGM executive said: “This won’t be a retro one-off. We’re taking him right back to his roots. We’ll go forwards by taking 007 back to the era in which we believe he fits most comfortably.”
