Regardless of what you think of Spectre and the James Bond franchise in general, you cannot deny its worldwide popularity. It is revered by many film fans and it is an event whenever a new Bond film is about to come out. This is especially the case when it comes to the films which have Daniel Craig playing the iconic character. Yet, doubts over whether Daniel Craig would reprise his role as 007 in Bond 25 have been around for a while.
Danny Boyle to direct Bond 25
However, we now have some more details about Bond 25, specifically in regards to who will direct the film. In an interview with Metro, Danny Boyle stated that he has rough plans to both write and direct Bond 25 by the end of 2018.
This is what Danny Boyle had to say on the matter:
“We are working on a script right now. And it all depends on that really. I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in 6 or 7 weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now. We’ve got an idea, John Hodge, the screenwriter, and I have got this idea, and John is writing it at the moment. And it all depends on how it turns out. It would be foolish of me to give any of it away.”
Bond 25 is still scheduled to be released in November 2019. Hence, if that release date is to be met, then both the pre-production and production for this film have to go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. This is especially true given how Boyle is currently working on another film with Love Actually writer and director Richard Curtis. Still, fans of Danny Boyle should be excited about the prospect of his involvement with Bond 25.
