Settlement over rights to British agent James Bond movies hints at evil

Broccoli.For years, “Never Say Never Again” has been left out of the Bond canon. The movie is not listed on the official James Bond 007 website, and was not included in last year’s “Bond 50” box set of discs celebrating 50 years of James Bond, dubbed “The Complete 22 Film Collection.” MGM lists 2012’s “Skyfall” as the 23rd James Bond film.The settlement may change that.The 24th movie in the series, with Sam Mendes returning as director, is set for release in late 2015. by Ryan Nakashima, The Associated Press Posted Nov 15, 2013 4:20 pm MDT read more
