Danny Boyle Confirmed as Director of JAMES BOND 25
James Bond is about to go silver.
Metro USA has confirmed rumors that Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle will be directing the untitled 25th installment of the James Bond film franchise. Daniel Craig is set to return as James Bond, which will be his fifth Bond film after Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre.
When asked if he was going to oversee James Bond 25, Boyle responded, "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 six or seven weeks, then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now."
Boyle, 61, is an English director, producer and screenwriter who won Best Director at the 2009 Academy Awards for his 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire. In 2010, his film 127 Hours was nominated for Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. His other films include Trainspotting, T2 Trainspotting, Steve Jobs, 28 Weeks Later, The Beach, A Life Less Ordinary, and Shallow Grave.
Boyle also named James Bond 25's screenwriter. "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."
James Bond 25 is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on November 8, 2019.
