Despite possibly having a Taken-esque plot, it looks like there's plenty of invested interest in the still unnamed Bond 25. Many thought Warner Bros was the automatic frontrunner for the film rights, but it turns out Apple and Amazon want to show the film as well. In fact, both companies are willing to pay the same amount of money Warner Bros is, and maybe even a bit more.

It seems like the two companies are aware of the film's franchise possibility, with aggressive offers from both Apple and Amazon. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Warner Bros is demanding MGM to get the license, so it can be a done deal. Having these crazy offers without a plot summary or a trailer shows just how influential the James Bond franchise is.

With the rise of streaming services in recent years, it's easy to see why Apple and Amazon want the rights to Bond 25. Considering how popular the franchise is, either company could wind up getting a ton of views for an exclusive film like this. Add more intriguing factors, like this film possibly being Daniel Craig's last James Bond film, and you have a ton of new viewers.

Aside from Craig reprising his role in Bond 25, not much else is known about the upcoming film. No release date or release window has been confirmed yet, so it might take a while.
