Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle has, in a surprising turn of events, left the production of Daniel Craig’s forthcoming final turn as the legendary super spy James Bond, citing “creative differences”.
In a post to the Bond franchise’s social media, studio EON Productions wrote: “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.”
Now, as for what the always nebulous Hollywood excuse of ‘creative differences’ means this time, it’s likely we won’t get any definitive answers for some time. But for now, it would appear that Bond 25 is on the hunt for a new director. The production had been clipping along, with sources saying that they were in the process of casting the Bond girl and the villain.
Production was expected to begin in September, so EON will likely fast-track any new director. The presently-untitled Bond 25 was slated for a UK release date of the 25th of October, 2019. However, whether or not this move will affect said release remains to be seen.
