Eon Productions and MGM have brought on Cary Joji Fukunaga to direct the next James Bond movie. The Emmy-winning director was announced Thursday as the new replacement for Danny Boyle to helm Daniel Craig‘s swan song in the role of 007.
James Bond producers along with star Daniel Craig made the announcement Tuesday that Danny Boyle is no longer directing Bond 25.
“Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25,” the official 007 Twitter account tweeted.
British filmmaker Danny Boyle has been officially confirmed as the director of the next Daniel Craig-starring 007 installment. Craig will return as a British secret agent for a fifth time.
I really hope this ends up good. You can check out the press release below.
Hot on the heels of the announcement that Eon Productions had set a November 8th 2019 release date for James Bond 25, comes an update that Daniel Craig’s return is a “done deal.”
Although not official, it feels right. Craig is an okay actor. The guy deserves to make a last one and become the third longest running Bond — Roger Moore and Sean Connery played Bond in a total of seven films (if you count Never Say Never Again for Connery).
The NY Times reports that five Hollywood studio giants are in contention for the James Bond distribution rights.
Sony Pictures four-film distribution deal with MGM and Eon Productions to distribute the franchise has expired after the release of Spectre and all of a sudden in the running to obtain James Bond are also Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox, and the newly launched Annapurna Pictures.
Birth.Movies.Death., a reputable movie outlet, has word from “sources close to Tom Hiddleston” that the Avengers villain, long a favorite choice to take on James Bond (aside from Idris Elba), is “in advanced talks” to be the replacement for Daniel Craig in what would be the 25th installment in the long-running franchise.
