MGM and Sony Deal - More Bond Blu-rays on the Way?

Posted Thu Feb 10, 2011 at 01:40 PM PST by Dick Ward

Sony will be handling distribution of films and upcoming DVDs, which could mean good things for Blu-ray and Bond fans alike.

In a deal being finalized by MGM, Sony was named as the worldwide distributor for both movies and DVD/Blu-ray content for the company. Sony will also be instrumental in the making of the next two Bond movies, putting up half of the funding for the first and a quarter of the funding for the second.

This almost certainly means more MGM Blu-rays will be released, and that Bond fans may finally get their hands on the movies they've been waiting for, like the 1995 classic 'GoldenEye.'

No specifics have been announced regarding the releases and we don't expect to hear more until the deal is finalized. Still, those hoping for unreleased MGM titles may get their wish in the near future.
