Topic: 2034 Doomsday thoughts/predictions?

2034, if I'm not mistaken, is the year the rights expire, or something similar. (Correct me if I'm wrong).

I have some thoughts on what EON might do before this, to "end their Bond series".

This is pure speculation obviously, but in terms of now until 2034, what do you think to this?

- DC's fifth and final bond film in 2020
- Then, sometime between 2022 and 2032, the 7th and final 007. Doing 5 bond films, bringing EON's total up to a nice round 30 bond films. The 30th bond film possibly released in 2032 for the 70th anniversary?
- All Fleming titles finally used (Risico, The Property Of A Lady, The Hildebrand Rarity, 007 In New York). The latter would have to be tweaked though, possibly into "Agent In New York".

This way, we would have:
7 007's
30 EON Bond films
All Fleming titles used
Last bond film celebrating 70th anniversary
And this bond dying idea, could actually happen in bond 30

What do you think?

Just some bonus thoughts:
AFTER 2034, could we see some unofficial bond films being made, finally giving NSNA some company? Christopher Nolan would love to make bond films as we know, but doesn't he have his own production company? So maybe Nolan will make his bond film(s) after the 2034 rights expire, enabling him to use his own production company instead of EON, and his own cast etc.

Obviously fun, pure, speculation, but would be good to see what people think...

I put this in the Bond 25 forum as it is about the future of Bond, if mods feel it needs moving elsewhere then I'd understand.

What EON ought to do is to make really good Bond movies in resonable intervals (3-4 years apart) and make sure they use the elements they have copyrights for such as the gunbarrel. That waty their Bond movies can remain as the real James Bond movies in the public's mind.

Some aspects of Bond will be out of copyright in some places 2035. I've read that in the US it will be 2048. EON has a long time until they need to worry.

Plus 30 films in total by 2048 might actually be more realistic at this point ajb007/lol

If we're lucky we'll have Bond 26 by 2034.

Some people would complain even if you hang them with a new rope

Look of course there's always the chance that I'm wrong but I doubt any of those titles—and I'm sorry Jarvio I know you really have a thing for it—including The Garden of Death, will be used for a modern Bond film.

Re: 2034 Doomsday thoughts/predictions?

Wouldn't they just come up with some legalese Bullshite to renew the copyright, even if it should rightly be public domain?

This would be great, because it would force EON to try harder because there'd be competition. Like Sherlock, we could have 50's-period Bond alongside modern bond, plus bond fans could publish their own novels.

Interestingly but sadly, by decade their were 6 films made in the 60s, 5 in the 70s, 5 in the 80s, 3 in the 90s, 3 in the 2000s, and a mere 2 films in the 10s.

But They would churn em out better and faster if their was threat of another bond taking EON off the map.
