Daniel Craig as James Bond

BOND 25 set to miss 2019 release date

Following the news that Danny Boyle has exited Bond 25  over “creative differences” we are now hearing the film may miss it’s October 2019 release date altogether.

Rumours point of Boyle struggling to work with producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. When he boarded the project Boyle brought longtime collaborator John Hodge with him to work on the script. That reportedly pushed out a script by Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade who have a long history with the franchise.

Bond 25 was due to begin production in a matter of weeks in order to hit it’s October 2019 release date in the UK. That release date is now expected to be delayed until “late 2020” in order for Wilson and Broccoli to find a new director.

Industry rumours point to the pair looking for a writer-director who can also take on polishing (or re-writing) the script.

Watch this space for an official announcement of the delay…

Danny Boyle exits BOND 25

It feels like only yesterday it was confirmed that Daniel Craig would be returning for Bond 25. The announcement of his return also heralded the announcement that Danny Boyle (Trainspotting) would be taking over directing duties from Sam Mendes.

Unfortunately word has just broken via the official Bond twitter that Boyle has now left the project.

A brief statement from producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli alongside Craig announced that due to “creative differences” Boyle will no longer be directing the film.

The 25th film in the franchise is currently due for release on October 25, 2019 in the UK, before arriving stateside two weeks later on November 8.
