James Bond boss details how Amazon purchase will affect series
It is a big year for James Bond. In just under ten days the final Daniel Craig film, No Time To Die, will be released, bringing one of the most lucrative 007 series to a close. And earlier this year MGM Studios was purchased by Amazon for a staggering $8.45 billion. On what that means for the ongoing Bond series, however, the franchise bosses aren’t quite sure.
Bond boss Barbara Broccoli revealed she “doesn’t know” where the franchise is going to go next. (Sunday Times Culture Magazine Via Female First).
She explained: “The truth is we don’t know. Until the deal is approved and we are able to get into deep discussions with them we don’t know.
“At the moment we’re not really any more enlightened about what they want to do and how they see things and how we fit in.”
In recent years Amazon has been pushing their Amazon Prime Video TV shows, sparking suggestions that perhaps a Bond TV series could be on the horizon.
This outcome, Barbara revealed, is something she hopes does not happen.
