The internet was set abuzz today by the news that director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting) has chosen to depart the yet to be titled Bond 25. According to the official James Bond twitter account, Boyle left after “creative differences” with star Daniel Craig and producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
Details remain sparse, though the project is still eyeing a November 8, 2019 start date.
James Bond is one of the longest-running film franchises in history. The previous film, Spectre, received mixed reception, unlike its predecessor, Skyfall, which is highly regarded as one of the best Bond films of all-time. Hopefully, with Danny Boyle at the helm, the franchise will return to it’s former glory.
Now distributed internationally by Universal Pictures with MGM and Annapurna Pictures handling domestic distribution, the film is produced by Eon Productions, and stars Daniel Craig in his fifth and final performance as the titicular character.
The untitled James Bond 25 is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8, 2019.
