is reporting that Sony and MGM have finalized a deal to co-finance and distribute worldwide James Bond 23.
This next film is set for release on November 9, 2012, and the two companies are already planning on a similar arrangement for James Bond 24 as well. On top of that we may see similar deals struck between the two companies for other movies besides Bond.
“Sony Pictures is the ideal studio partner for us as MGM re-enters the filmmaking business. We have longstanding relationships with Michael and Amy and look forward to what promises to be a prosperous future together,” Barber and Birnbaum said.
“In addition to working together on Bond, this deal expands our relationship with MGM as we explore co-financing opportunities on other high-profile projects,” Lynton said.
