Danny Boyle is no longer directing Bond 25

After being disappointed with the last couple of Bond movies, I was looking forward to seeing what Danny Boyle would do with Bond 25. Turns out he has now left the film.

Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig announced that it was due to creative differences.

The official James Bond Twitter channel shared that news.

Production on Bond 25 was set to begin at the end of the year on December 3. MGM will release the film in the U.S. on 8th November 2019 through its new joint venture for domestic theatrical distribution with Annapurna Pictures, and Universal will release internationally commencing with a traditional earlier release in the U.K. on 25th October 2019.

However, with Boyle leaving the project that could change.

What a damn shame!

The current favourite to direct the film is Yann Demange, director of ’71. The French director is the early frontrunner with Oscar-nominated Denis Villeneuve next, while Skyfall and Spectre director Sam Mendes is also in the running. Christopher Nolan, Steven Spielberg and Ridley Scott may also be considered.

Mendes had said he was done after Spectre and Villeneuve is currently working on the Dune adaptation so it remains to be seen whether they could actually commit to Bond 25. Demange is probably my favourite as he would bring a freshness to the franchise.

With Boyle leaving, who would you like to see direct Bond 25?
