AboutEON/Danjaq

  • Albert R Broccoli, (1909­­–1996) also known as ‘Cubby’, was the driving force behind bringing James Bond to the big screen. Broccoli started his producing career in 1952 when he came to England and launched Warwick Films with Irving Allen. Broccoli’s interest in Ian Fleming’s ‘Bond’ stories led him to Canadian producer, Harry Saltzman. Together they formed EON Productions and in 1962 produced the first James Bond film, Dr. No. When Harry Saltzman sold his share in EON Productions to United Artists in 1977, Broccoli continued as the ‘man behind Bond’, producing a further seven films before passing the torch on to his stepson Michael G. Wilson and daughter, Barbara Broccoli. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have produced some of the most successful Bond films ever made including Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

    Danjaq is the US based company that, with MGM, co-owns the copyrights in the existing James Bond films and controls the right to produce future James Bond films. EON Productions, an affiliate of Danjaq, is the UK based production company which makes the James Bond films. Danjaq and EON control the rights to all worldwide traditional Bond merchandising, and with MGM control the rights in other areas of Bond licensing such as location based entertainment.
