Apple & Amazon Go After James Bond Movie Rights

Apple and Amazon are reportedly in the running to pick up the distribution rights to the James Bond franchise.

Both companies are believed to be willing to pay as much or even more than Warner Bros, which is said to be the most likely choice, according to a report from the Hollywood Reporter.

MGM and Eon Productions, the current rightsholders to Bond, are also said to be in discussions with Universal and Fox, as well as Sony which distributed the last four Bond films.

The Hollywood Reporter said that Apple and Amazon’s involvement suggests a deal could involve more than just film distribution rights, with the potential for a TV show lining up with Apple’s increased interest in producing original content.

Apple will reportedly spend $1 billion in the next year for original TV shows and movies.

The James Bond franchise is said to be valued between US$2-5 billion.
