James Bond Rights

The rights to the next big screen adventure of James Bond have been up in the air ever since Sony Pictures’ deal with 007 owners Eon Productions and MGM expired following the release of Spectre in 2015. Since then, we’ve been wondering which studio would pick up the rights to James Bond, and it looks like we might finally have an answer.

Back in April, Sony Pictures wasn’t going to give up the rights without a fight, but Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox and Annapurna Pictures were also said to be in the running. More recently, Apple and Amazon emerged as possible contenders, but it turns out one of the possible distributors from last spring may be coming out on top after all, and if the deal is finalized this week, it will be Annapurna Pictures distributing James Bond 25 in the United States.
