MGM funding The Hobbit, what about Bond?

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit film recently got the green light to start production in Feb. 2011, with MGM being the last studio to commit funding of the film. But what about funding for the next Bond film? If you remember, Bond 23 was already in production last winter when the studio suddenly pulled the plug. MGM, who has had financial troubles, has since been unable to put more money into the film and so production has been in limbo. However, MGM announced in Sept. that their dept payment period was extended through the end of October, 2010, opening up the possibility of shooting Bond 23 mid 2011.
