My money is on WB. Paramount is certainly a possibility and they would love Bond to go along with Trek and MI as far as their franchise portfolio goes. Disney is a long shot for a lot of reasons. EON really doesn’t want to be swallowed up and sort of lost among SW and the MCU. A lot also depends on whoever is keeping the lights on at MGM. Sony could jump back on board but has been oddly quiet. Their current management seems to be in flux IMO. I’ve mentioned before that FOX might be the dark horse in this race. Universal might be there too, but Bond is the prize with MGM.
How this plays out or who EON has be “talking with” per MGW, is anybody’s guess, but clearly something’s going to happen soon. This is also nothing new. If they’ve set a date and the writing was announced and in between that time Craig agreed to do it but keep it under wraps, there has to be some deal decided upon. Distribution is a deal that’s locked down first in most cases, but with a franchise of Bond’s scope, the details are I’m sure very unique and painstakingly planned out because this certainly is beyond “the next couple of films”.
We’ll either hear of one of the majors buying out MGM (they’re really in no position to partner anymore), or EON and whoever striking a deal.
Time will tell… and it will tell soon.
