Scientific Games seals 007 deal

It’s still to be seen whether Daniel Craig will return to the James Bond franchise. At the last ask, he was holding out for a two-movie deal worth over £100 million. All of which said, whoever stars in the film tentatively entitled ‘Bond 25’, you can rest assured that any 007 gaming gambling tie-in will come courtesy of Scientific Games.

A new exclusive licensing agreement gives Scientific Games the rights to all past and future Bond movies. The firm also landed the rights to all six of the actors who’ve officially essayed 007 – Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and the aforementioned Mr Craig.
