by at . Comments

Sony Pictures has officially been named the distributor for the next two James Bond movies for MGM.  The two studios announced in a joint press release today that the 23rd Bond film has been given a November 9, 2012 release date. 

The two companies will also be co-financing and distributing James Bone 24 in the future, although no other information was given on that venture.

"Sony Pictures is the ideal studio partner for us as MGM re-enters the filmmaking business. We have longstanding relationships with Michael and Amy and look forward to what promises to be a prosperous future together," said MGM co-chairs Gary Barber and Roger Birnbaum.

Sony Pictures released the last two Bond films and both did very well in the theatrical market.  MGM has been going through some major changes, so the distribution rights were up in the air, until now.
