It was reported before the weekend that companies like Apple and Netflix were looking to bid for the rights to exclusively stream the upcoming James Bond No Time To Die movie. This is due to the film’s release which has been delayed to 2021, and with there being uncertainty as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, a release on streaming services might not be such a bad idea.
However, it seems that obtaining the rights to stream the movie might be a bit too rich for either Apple or Netflix. This is because according to reports, MGM was looking for as much as $600 million to sell the movie to either Apple or Netflix. It was suggested that the maximum price either company was willing to pay was $300 million, which was meant to cover the cost of producing the movie and a little more for their troubles.
