Again in April, we reported that just about each main studio in Hollywood—and some smaller ones—have been preventing over the distribution rights to the subsequent James Bond film, even though we knew actually nothing concerning the movie on the time. The impetus for the bidding warfare had nothing to do with hope for the film’s high quality, although, because it was all attributable to the truth that Sony’s previous distribution take care of MGM and Eon Productions (which personal the precise rights) resulted in 2015 after the discharge of Spectre. Meaning whoever can signal a take care of MGM and Eon now will be capable to connect their brand to the subsequent Bond film, an honor that comes with surprisingly little cash however might be nonetheless fairly thrilling.

Since then, MGM and Eon have slid the subsequent Bond film—the 25th within the collection—right into a November eight, 2019 launch date, and Daniel Craig has lastly stopped fucking round and agreed to be in another film. Meaning there’s a bit extra blood within the water to draw these hungry studios, and two new ones have not too long ago determined to hitch the hunt: Apple and Amazon. This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which says the 2 corporations are able to spend as a lot cash to get James Bond as present frontrunners Warner Bros. and Sony are, which says loads about how keen they’re to smash their approach into big-budget movie distribution.

Curiously, the Hollywood Reporter story means that Apple may truly be searching for greater than James Bond’s distribution rights, with “sources” suggesting that it is perhaps “fascinated with reducing a bigger rights deal or buying full possession to take advantage of Bond’s largely unmined TV potential.” The speculation is that Apple—or anybody, actually—may step in and attempt to take over a majority of the Bond rights, which they may then use to create spin-offs and animated sequels that may ultimately make everybody sick of James Bond.
