It is a pity ‘Cubby’ did not buy out ‘Harry’ when he sold his share of Eon to UA. Too late for that, but can we convince ‘Barbara’ and ‘Michael’ to buy back that half of Eon and take complete control of Bond. If this drags on, we could have the same situation as with Timothy Dalton waiting too long in the 90s and lose Daniel Craig.

Carl Icahn would bring MGM down with him into bigger debts, if he has problems of his own. He should stay away, EON should shake him off.
