Sony could be deprived of rights on ‘James Bond’

After the new James Bond film to be released in November this year, Sony Pictures is likely to lose its licence to kill.

The Bond movies are being co-financed and distributed by Sony under an partnership agreement with film-makers Metro Goldwyn-Mayer. However, their deal-agreement ends up this year.

Tom Rothman, the chairperson of Sony, admitted that the fight is going to be ferocious. Besides, he added that they obviously were going to compete for the rights on world-widely-known Bondiana and asked to ‘be honest, so is everybody in the business’.

It is known that Warner Bros was Sony’s main opponent in battle for the film franchise. Besides, due to co-operation while shooting Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy, MGM and Warners obtained a close working relationship.

However, Sony is able to fight for its rights due to the fact that the most famous Bond film Skyfall, which took over $1.1bn,  was made with Sony’s help.

New Bondiana’s movie Spectre is being filmed in the UK. Besides, it reunited Daniel Craig with Sam Mendes, who directed Skyfall.

On Saturday night the UK government closed all streets around Trafalgar Square and Whitehall because of shooting the scenes with Craig and Ralph Fiennes in a car. Besides, River Thames had also became a place for shooting speedboat scenes. Despite the UK, the Bond’s production has also visited Morocco, Austria, Italy and Mexico.

The date of Spectre’s release is 6 November 2015.
Producers are sure that Spectre is going to be the same high level movie as Skyfall, or even better.
