Bond 23Diamonds may be forever, but the future of James Bond is looking a little grim.

According to a press release, producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions announced today that production on the latest Bond film -- the 23rd in the longrunning saga -- has been suspended indefinitely "due to the continuing uncertainty surrounding the future of MGM and the failure to close a sale of the studio."

"We do not know when development will resume and do not have a date for the release of BOND 23," they added, according to a statement.

The film was initially on track for a 2011/2012 release.
