While speaking to the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts, Boyle spoke about his doubts when directing a big film like 007:


“I like watching big films but I don’t think I’m necessarily good at making them. Then I thought, ‘No, you shouldn’t think like that.’”

He went on to reveal what made him say yes to the project:


“We have this idea about what we want to do with Bond and I felt we should have a go because of this idea. So we are trying to stay true to our principles. The unknown is exciting. The fear is very important. If you repeat yourself you don’t ask yourself enough questions, you don’t feel the fear about what you’re doing because you feel you know what you’re doing.”

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.
