After Die Another Day (2002) came out MGM wanted to do a spin-off film featuring Halle Berry's character Jinx. It was going to be the first spin-off film for the James Bond franchise.

MGM called off the project after noticing that other female-lead action movies of the time, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life, flopped. They told all of the people working on the Jinx film to now focus on 'Bond 21', which was to star Pierce Brosnan, for 2005.

Pierce Brosnan's 5th film as Bond never happened because he was demanding too much money and they couldn't negotiate any further. As a result the studio decided to reboot the entire James Bond franchise instead.
