The company’s producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson recently made a bold claim about their beloved creation. They’ve made it clear that James Bond will remain in movie theatres. The James Bond action franchise is set to continue, despite the acquisition of MGM by streaming giant Amazon.
“We are going to do everything we can to continue the franchise,” Eon Productions said about the James Bond franchise in a statement. “It’s been too long already. We have some great ideas for another film and are working really hard to achieve that.”Daniel Craig’s final Bond film is set to premiere in theaters on October 8.
From the beginning, Noel Broccoli and his production company Eon Productions have been producing James Bond films to high critical acclaim, as each one is met with worldwide praise. The results are films that have broken box-office records, spawned a pair of hit spinoffs, and made the British superagent an international icon.
Still, despite being privately opposed to the adaptation of Bond for a streaming platform, MGM and Eon Productions are confident they will remain in talks over the appearance of Bond 25 on any future streaming services, according to a source familiar with the companies.
“It’s not every day that film production is stopped in its tracks. But when a worldwide pandemic is threatening to wipe out humanity, we had to take action. Now that movie theaters are safe, we can bring the film back with an even bigger bang! One of the most epic movies of all time” Said the officials in the press.
MGM will retain its own identity while gaining access to Amazon’s world-class content delivery capabilities and becoming a part of the first major media company with a direct-to-consumer streaming service.
