Ep. 155 Talking Through The Medias With Rama's Screen
Thank you From Variety Apple, Netflix and other streaming services explored the possibility of acquiring “No Time to Die,” the upcoming James Bond movie that was originally slated to debut last April. MGM, the studio behind the film, reportedly lost between $30 million to $50 million due to the delays, insiders said. The studio was said to be looking for a deal of roughly $600 million — a price tag that was deemed too rich for two of the free-spending streaming services. The film costs more than $250 million to produce and has lined up several promotional partnerships to help defray those costs — including Land Rover, Omega watches, and Heineken. Those companies may have been expecting the film to hit theaters and might not be thrilled with a streaming-only bow.
More MGM news. It looks like Michael B. Jordan may be following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Sylvester Stallone, for Creed 3. Stallone not only starred as the titular character of his 1976 film Rocky but ended up directing its sequels. According to Deadline, Jordan is considering taking over the director’s role for the third installment of Creed. The report was part of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s theatrical distribution plans (and possible streaming deals, if any) in the age of the global pandemic. Also trending, Jordan may be heading back into the comic universe to produce a Warner Bros. and DC Comic's film of Static Shock, based on the DC and Milestone Comics character Static a comic following high school student Virgil Hawkins, who transforms into a superhero with electromagnetic powers. Static first became widely known in the early-2000s animated series Static Shock.
