Danny Boyle Is No Longer Directing Bond 25

Danny Boyle Is No Longer Directing Bond 25

If you were thinking things were a little too quiet on the James Bond front the last few months, now we know why.

The official James Bond Twitter account posted this morning that Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle will no longer direct the 25th Bond film, which is expected to be Daniel Craig’s last time portraying the iconic character.

Boyle, who directed Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, and won the Best Director Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire, had been circling the project since February. Then, in May, he officially got the job. Rumour had it casting was ongoing for the film, which was aiming at a December 2018 production start date.

But, with Boyle now out, that seems like an ambitious date to hit, as any new director who steps in would certainly want to put their stamp on the project.

Ultimately, the question becomes: Will this impact the long-in-place November 2019 release date of the film? One would assume that’s the case but nothing has been announced yet. However, it’s now officially OK to start mourning the fact we aren’t going to get a James Bond film through Boyle’s unique vision.
