The Metro Golden Mayer today announced the agreement with 20th Century Fox Home Enterntainment to extend the contract that bound them in the realization and distribution of Blu-Ray and DVD. Of course, the Bond series is one of the prides of MGM, as stated Gary Barber, head of the Metro:
“We are thrilled to renew our longstanding partnership with 20th Century Fox,” said Gary Barber, Chairman and CEO, MGM.
“The Fox Home Entertainment team have delivered strong results for MGM and we look forward to more success together in the future.”
“Our partnership with MGM has been a tremendous success over the past 17 years,” said Mike Dunn, President Worldwide, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. “It is a privilege to continue to steward their prestigious library of commercially and critically acclaimed films.”
This agreement does not refer to distribution of films and of which we have known this week that have not yet begun the meetings about it (Tom Rothman, Sony, The Hollywood Reporter):
Where do discussions stand on the next James Bond film?
I’m not going to comment on that, other than to say that we remain very interested in continuing that excellent and important relationship. And I think we have certain advantages as the incumbent. No discussions have started yet.
