Amazon has made a deal to acquire Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) films, paving the way for Jeff Bezos to own the rights to James Bond.

Per CNN, the deal is valued at $8.45 billion. This gives Amazon a huge collection of films and TV shows that will add to its Prime Video content.

In total, MGM has more than 4,000 films and 17,000 television shows, Mike Hopkins, who heads Prime Video and Amazon Studios, told CNN.

  • “The real financial value behind this deal is the treasure trove of IP in the deep catalog that we plan to reimagine and develop together with MGM’s talented team. It’s very exciting and provides so many opportunities for high-quality storytelling,” he told CNN.
