James Bond producer and MGM sue Universal over upcoming spy film
Danjaq, producer of James Bond and MGM are suing Universal over planned spy film Section 6.
The film, based around the formation of the MI6, has certain elements that are closely linked to James Bond series. Initial proceedings started last week in US federal court and documents reportedly suggest that MGM are seeking damages from Universal - who have yet to comment on the lawsuit - as well as closure of the production.
Danjaq is currently working on the next James Bond film, the 24th in the series, which sees the return of director Sam Mendes and actor Daniel Craig.
