Bond. Frodo. You might have a home just yet.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Spyglass Entertainment (which has co-financed some of the biggest movies of the last decade including the J. J. Abrams Star Trek and The Sixth Sense, as well as the recent comedy Dinner for Schmucks) is nearing a deal to run the legendary studio, which is also in a $4 billion debt. This is good news for Bond fans, as earlier this year Bond 23 was officially post-poned indefinitely. As well as LOTR fans who have been waiting patiently for Peter Jackson’s two Hobbit films.
As both fans of those franchises, I am pleased as punch to know that such a studio with a legacy won’t just fade away.
