MGM is not considering selling the ‘No Time To Die‘ movie to the streaming services. On Friday the distributor of Daniel Craig‘s last 007 movies in the US, MGM, has spoken with both Apple, Netflix, and Amazon about releasing the movie directly to streaming.
The company reportedly asked $600 million for a year license but the streaming giants were not willing to pay more than $300 million. But it seems the two sides couldn’t make an agreement and according to a spokesperson for MGM, the movie will still be released in April 2021 on big screens.
In March, it was announced that ‘No Time To Die’ was being delayed because of the coronavirus outbreak and would debut in North America on November 20. Then, on October 2, the movie was pushed back again to April 2, 2021. This was because many theaters were remaining closed during that period. MGM already lost around $50 million due to these delays.
Despite the conversations still took place in late September, MGM had announced that ‘No Time To Die’ is not for sale.
Now as the 52-year-old prepares to bow out with ‘No Time To Die’ speculation is hovering around his replacement and how the 007 franchise will reboot this time around. Despite unconfirmed rumors of Tom Hardy’s alleged casting as the next James Bond, 007 producer Barbara Broccoli said they were not thinking about a reboot until ‘No Time To Die’ is out the way.
