darkhorizons.com Five studios are reportedly vying for the rights to distribute films in the James Bond franchise following the four-film Sony Pictures deal coming to an end after the release of “Spectre”. Sony has been handling the films since 2006’s “Casino Royale” and, even with its own issues, has given it an era of stability and prosperity as the Daniel Craig era of the franchise has made $3.5 billion at the worldwide box office (adjusted for inflation) Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Eon Productions have now begun being feted by studios that want the rights to market and distribute the film and The New York Times reports today that Sony wants to retain the arrangement, while Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox and even the newly launched Annapurna Pictures. What’s interesting here is the deal is just a one-film contract as MGM is potentially considering a sale or public offering so anything longer may complicate that.
