The director of Daniel Craig's last James Bond film just quit
Months after revealing that he'd direct the upcoming 25th James Bond film, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has exited the film because of creative differences.
"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 James Bond Twitter account tweeted.
In March, Boyle said he was working on the script for Bond 25. “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 six or seven weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now.”
The involvement of Boyle—who'd made a number of critically acclaimed films including Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, and Slumdog Millionaire—set expectations high for Craig's final film.
But now, with the details of his departure unclear, it calls into question the script that they'd been working on.
Production is set to begin in December with a release date of November 8, 2019.
