It's the skeleton of a good movie thanks to the writers strike. The same team from Casino Royale submitted the first draft of the script the day the strike began. This left Craig, the Producers, and Marc Forster to fill in the blanks and make changes on the fly. The editing is suspect, but there...

Same, but I think if it gets approved/when the proposal gets more publicity, there will be other investors interested.

There are tax credits for the studio and the theaters, but the rest is coming from private sources. The company is even willing to buy the land from New Orleans to own it all outright.
Also, if ...

Quantum of Solace. If not for the writers strike, it would have been much better, IMO. There's a skeleton of a movie there, but nothing was fleshed out in a satisfying way. Could've done with a more competent editor as well.
It's a shame how that movie turned out considering what Daniel Craig ...
