You can scratch Danny Boyle off your webpage, IMDB, the director has chosen not to head the next James Bond film citing “creative differences.”
Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and Bond actor Daniel Craig announced the decision on the the official James Bond Twitter account today, which unless the account was hacked you can pretty much write it in stone.
The upcoming installment of the Bond franchise, like many before, has not been without controversy. It first started when Daniel Craig made it clear he would never do another Bond film after Spectre, but has obviously reneged on his threats.
Veteran Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade had originally been set to write the film, but when Boyle was brought on the job went to Trainspotting writer and long-time collaborator John Hodge.
‘Bond 25’ was originally scheduled for release in November, 2019, and shooting was to begin in December, but with no director who knows how long it will be before production starts. And, will there be a re-write?
