Apple, Amazon Join Race for James Bond Film Rights

As much as MoviePass wants to be the industry disruptor, the big disrupter right now is all the tech money pouring into content.

As a Bond fan, I'm also interested (and, to be honest, a little worried) by these lines in Tatiana Siegel and Borys Kit's pice for The Hollywood Reporter:

“ 'In the world of Lucasfilm and Marvel, Bond feels really underdeveloped,' says someone familiar with the bidding process."

And:

"Some observers feel that the franchise, by only limiting itself to theatrical movies, remains vastly under-utilized by 21st century standards..."

The bidding war for Bond just got more interesting.
