      Rumor: Danny Boyle to Direct Bond 25 This Year If Script is Approved





      new rumor suggests that Danny Boyle will direct Bond 25 later this year, but only if the script proves acceptable. Speculation about the next Bond director began immediately after Skyfall and Spectre helmer Sam Mendes announced he would leave the series, and Oscar-winner Boyle became an instant favorite to replace Mendes for is shaping up to be Daniel Craig’s final film as the iconic British spy.
      Boyle’s Bond prospects seemed to improve even more after both Denis Villeneuve and Christopher Nolan removed themselves from directing Bond 25, with Villeneuve saying he prefers to focus on potentially adapting Dune onto the big screen. However, Boyle was thought to no longer have interest in Bond after it was announced that he had signed on to direct Richard Curtis’ next project, a period musical. Speculation said Boyle could only helm Bond if the film was pushed back from its planned November 2019 release date. While it doesn’t look like that will happen – at least not yet – Boyle is reportedly still interested in directing Bond 25… but there’s a catch.


      Daily Mail columnist Baz Bamigboye reports that Danny Boyle could still direct Bond 25 later this year. However, Boyle’s participation depends on one big factor: the script. Boyle’s Trainspotting collaborator John Hodge was previously reported to be working on a Bond 25 script separate from the one reportedly under development from long-time Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Indeed, most thought Hodge’s participation gave Boyle the inside track on landing the directing gig.



      Bamigboye notes in his report that producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.Wilson, as well as star Daniel Craig, are “willing this to happen.” So, it sounds like Craig very much wants Boyle to take over the Bond directing reins (the duo previously collaborated for the Opening Ceremony for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games). Craig helped revitalize the Bond series with his work in Casino Royale in 2006, which was directed by James Bond veteran Martin Campbell. After a hiccup with Marc Forster’s Quantum of Solace, though, Sam Mendes’ Skyfall became the franchise’s most successful installment to date. Unfortunately, Craig and Mendes’ second collaboration, Spectre, wasn’t as successful. Still, Craig is willing to return as Bond for fifth and potentially last time. The question is, who will be shepherding him through that film?
      Danny Boyle certainly has all the qualifications for a great James Bond film. Boyle has handled multiple genres over the course of his career and has a good handle on story and character development. Although he may not be a traditional action director, neither was Mendes… nor several other action movie directors. Mendes got the Bond gig, most believed, to bring more human dimension to the series, while still executing the action. Mendes did a great job on Skyfall but, unfortunately, became more of a generic orchestrator of absurd set pieces on Spectre. Since producers are reportedly striving to get Boyle aboard for Bond 25 would indicate their hopes to get back to the atmosphere and characterization that fueled Skyfall‘s success – and perhaps get away from what happened with Spectre and Quantum of Solace.

      Daniel Craig Confirms Bond 25 Is His Next Movie



      Daniel Craig finally confirms that Bond 25 as his next movie. The actor made his debut as 007 in Martin Campbell’s Casino Royale in 2006, and he reprised his role in three sequels – the last one being Sam Mendes’ Spectre in 2015. Although the movie was a sequel to the most successful installment in the entire James Bond franchise, it wasn’t as well-received nor as commercially successful. So, the producers behind the series are looking to get back on track.


      To do that, several things are changing behind the scenes regarding Craig’s presumably final Bond film. So far, screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have written the scripts for each James Bond film since The World is Not Enough, and they are expected to write the script for Bond 25 as well. However, it has also been reported that Trainspotting scribe John Hodge is writing a separate Bond 25 screenplay that may be used for Danny Boyle to direct, which he could do this year if the script is approved. Unfortunately, there has been some uncertainty regarding Craig’s return as 007. After Spectre released, he seemed hesitant to jump back into the role, even saying that there hadn’t been a decision yet as of last fall. But it seems everything has been settled and he’s now set to return as Bond.
      Related: Danny Boyle Can Rescue Daniel Craig’s James Bond

      Daniel Craig attended a recent auction in which he sold his personal 2014 Aston Martin. And speaking with Associated Press at the event, Craig confirmed that Bond 25 is indeed his next movie, saying, “Yeah,” when asked if that’s his next project. Then, when asked about Danny Boyle’s involvement as director, Craig smiled and said, “We’ll see, we’ll see.”



      Although it was somewhat obvious that Daniel Craig would return for Bond 25, the fact that he and the producers have been cagey about expressly confirming his return so far put some doubts in fans’ minds. But it seems that was all for naught as Craig is now definitely returning for the next James Bond film. And while it’s great that the next installment has its star, the questions still remain about who will be writing and directing the sequel?


      Shortly after news broke about Danny Boyle potentially directing Bond 25, the filmmaker confirmed that he’s currently working on a Bond script with John Hodge – Boyle said that he had an idea and Hodge is trying to put that idea down on paper – but that he first had another project with About Time scribe Richard Curtis in the works that he needed to focus on. If Boyle and Hodge’s idea doesn’t please the producers, then there’s Purvis and Wade’s script, which will need to be picked up by another filmmaker to bring to life on the big screen.
      Aside from the cast and crew, there’s also the question of which studio is going to distribute the film. Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures’ contract with MGM and EON Productions expired with Spectre, and the production studios are now only offering a one-film contract for whichever distributor picks up the Bond 25 rights. What’s interesting is that, since MGM fired its CEO, reports suggest that MGM could go up for sale, and whichever studio acquires them could potentially obtain the James Bond production rights. Again, the franchise’s future is a bit unclear, but for now, fans can rest assured knowing Daniel Craig is going to film Bond 25 soon…ish.

      Bond 25: Edgar Wright Is Reportedly A 'Real Possibility' To Direct



      Baby Driver's Edgar Wright is considered a possible candidate to helm Bond 25. The project is in need of a new director, following Danny Boyle's exit earlier this week. The Oscar-winning filmmaker left due to creative differences with the producers and star Daniel Craig, reportedly over casting the villain. EON had hoped to commence principal photography this December in order to meet the previously scheduled November 2019 release date, so the search for Boyle's replacement is on.
      Despite reports suggesting Bond 25 could be delayed due to the setback, the film hasn't moved from its window yet. It would appear the studio is hoping to get someone new onboard quickly, as evidenced by names such as Jean-Marc Vallee already being rumored. Now, another prominent director is thought to be in the running for the job.



      In the same Deadline report that mentioned Vallee, it's stated Wright is "a real possibility" to call the shots on Bond 25. Wright, who is coming off the critical and commercial success of Baby Driver, certainly fits the bill of an established writer-director EON wants. The British helmsman is also a fan of the Bond franchise, which is an added bonus.




      Tonally, much of Wright's material greatly differs from the brooding, serious Bond Craig has molded over the course of his tenure, but there's no denying Wright would be an incredible hire for EON. Over the course of his career, the director has demonstrated a knack for crafting exciting set pieces, such as the hand-to-hand combat sequences of The World's End and Baby Driver's thrilling car chases. His style (both visually and in the writing) and sharp attention to detail has the potential to deliver Craig's 007 a fitting sendoff - which was the actor's motivation for returning one last time. Wright's Cornetto trilogy was brilliant in the way it commented on different film genres (while celebrating them at the same time), so seeing him take on the world of espionage would be a treat.


      What remains to be seen, however, is how likely this all is. Wright is no stranger to creative differences on a studio blockbuster, having an infamous falling out with Marvel Studios over the direction of
      Ant-Man. The auteur may be leery of taking on another franchise installment, opting instead to develop something new he'd have creative control over (remember, Craig has input on casting decisions). Wright has teased an adaptation of the novel Grasshopper Jungle in the past, and he also seems keen on scripting a Baby Driver 2. It'll be interesting to see what happens, but a number of Bond fans will be hoping Wright accepts the call from MI6 if the offer does indeed come his way.

      James Bond 25 is set to shoot under the working title Shatterhand. Following the acclaim that greeted 2012’s Skyfall, hopes were high the next entrySpectre could live up to its predecessor. The film reunited Daniel Craig with director Sam Mendes, with Dave Bautista and Christoph Waltz recruited for villain duties. Sadly, the movie proved to be a letdown, which was partly the result of the production being rushed to meet a release date. The movie revealed Waltz was playing iconic villain Blofeld, and in addition to retconning him to be the mastermind behind the events of Craig’s previous adventures, it also revealed he and Bond were once adopted brothers.


      Many critics and fans found this turn nonsensical, and the movie ended on a note suggesting it could be Craig’s final time playing the part. Craig later signed on for a final time, and he appears to be creatively involved with making his last outing something special.
      Daniel Boyle was briefly attached to James Bond 25 but left following creative disagreements, with reports suggesting he and Craig clashed over the casting of the villain. Cary Fukunaga is currently sitting in the director’s chair, with the movie’s release date recently pushed back to April 2020 after Scott Z. Burns was hired to perform extensive rewrites.

      The development process on James Bond 25 has been very public and eventful, but barring any more issues, the film is set to start filming this April. Now a new report from Production Weekly (via The Guardian) reveals the movie will shoot under the working title Shatterhand. Curiously enough, this was the rumored title of the movie back in 2017, with reports at the time suggesting it was an adaptation of the 2001 Bond novel Never Dream Of Dying by Raymond Benson.





      Shatterhand is also an alias used by series villain Blofeld in the novel You Only Live Twice. Previous reports on the Shatterhand script suggest Bond would be going up against a blind supervillain, but given the unresolved rivalry between Bond and Blofeld from Spectre, perhaps the next installment will merge Blofield will the villain from the Never Dream Of Dying novel. Curiously, Waltz has denied he will play Blofeld again, claiming that even though he’d like to, it's series tradition a new actor play the part in the next entry.


      Whatever James Bond 25 ends up being titled, hopefully, it will bring Craig’s era to a suitable close.
      Casino Royale and Skyfall are considered two of the best installments of the franchise, but Quantum Of Solace and Spectre are also considered two of the most disappointing. It might be a very permanent end for Craig’s Bond too, with rumors suggesting another bone of contention between Boyle and Craig was the latter insisting the character die at the end of the script. That certainly would be a shocking end for a James Bond movie, but that report is unconfirmed for now.

      Bond 25: Rami Malek & Billy Magnussen in Talks for Major Roles




      Newly awarded Oscar-winner Rami Malek and Billy Magnussen are reportedly joining the cast of Bond 25. Daniel Craig's days as 007 appeared to be done after Spectre, but his disinterest in returning changed over time and eventually led to him agreeing to return for a fifth and final film. The project finally picked up steam when Danny Boyle signed on to direct the film, but creative differences led him to leave the project.
      The movie is now set to be directed by True Detective's Cary Fukunaga and that director change has already seen the release change on multiple occasions. Now set to hit theaters next April, Bond 25 is reportedly getting arewrite from Scott Burns. Story details have been difficult to come by thanks to the various directors and writers who've been attached to the film, but it's previously been confirmed that Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw, and Ralph Fiennes are returning. It was previously rumored that Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek was eyed for a role too.


      Thanks to two new reports, some casting decisions for Bond 25 appear close to being made.
      Variety reported that Magnussen is the top choice to play a new CIA operative, but they aren't sure if an offer has been made. This report also notes MGM and Eon are searching for two prominent female roles, one being a new MI6 agent and another accomplice for Bond. While Variety also reported that Malek is still being looked at for the villain role, Collider reveals that Malek's deal is expected to close after working out his scheduling on Mr. Robot's fourth and final season. Additionally, Collider mentions that Black Panther's Lupita Nyong'o is being eyed for an unspecified role.


      The likely addition of Malek would come at no better time for all parties involved. Malek is fresh off his Oscar winning performance as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody and can command more money as a result, while Bond 25 immediately gets one of the hottest names in the business for the main antagonist. Magnussen is possibly better known for his comedic work, but his established working relationship with Fukunaga on
      Maniac likely helps his chances of getting a major action role. As for Lupita, she is another star on the rise and fellow Oscar-winner, so the possibility of her joining in either female role is possible.


      Should Bond 25 actually add all three of these stars, then Craig's final appearance as the spy will once again be a star-studded affair. There's still additional roles that will need to be filled too, so the cast could become even more impressive. With the
      working title recently being revealed, the start of production is not very far away anymore. An April start is rumored, so we should know soon who does and does not join Bond 25's cast.

      Lashana Lynch Reportedly Playing Female 007 Agent in Bond 25



      In Bond 25, the next installment in the long-running James Bond franchise,Captain Marvel's Lashana Lynch will reportedly be assuming 007's license to kill. However while Lynch's character will hold the 007 agent number, she's not playing the character of James Bond himself. That role remains with Daniel Craig, who's played the iconic British secret agent in the most recent four Bond films.
      When Craig announced that he'd be hanging up his Walther PPK after Bond 25, speculation began swirling around what kind of person might be next tapped to step into the role and continue the venerable series. It's been wondered about since even before the announcement of his impending retirement, especially the question of if the next actor to take over leading the franchise would be a woman rather than a man, or be a non-white performer.


      A Bond 25 production insider reportedly told UK's
      The Daily Mail that the film opens with Craig's Bond retired, while back at the MI6 offices, agency director M welcomes 007 into her office, and Lynch enters the room in response. The insider commented that, "Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don't work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning."


      It's unclear how much Lynch's character of Nomi is as it was in the original version of the Bond 25 script, as BBC's creator and star of
      Fleabag, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, at the request of Craig himself, was brought in as a script doctor to help do a polish as well as to make sure that the franchise evolves with the times. When asked during a previous interview if Bond was still a relevant character in the modern 21st century era, Waller-Bridge said, "I think he's absolutely relevant now. [The franchise] has just got to grow. It has just got to evolve, and the important thing is that the film treats the women properly. He doesn't have to. He needs to be true to his character."

      It seems that Bond 25 is striving to find its balance between the classic Bond stories and villains, as we've seen with the news of the character of
      Blofeld returning to the big screen, and more contemporary gender perspectives. The insider commented that within the Bond production offices, the term Bond Girls is no longer being used, but rather Bond Women. It'll be a classic Bond, finding his way through a world with women fighting alongside him rather than hiding behind him.

      James Bond 25 Gets Official Title Of No Time To Die



      James Bond 25 gets the official title of No Time To Die as the full cast for the movie is confirmed and an official plot synopsis is released. The film will see Daniel Craig return as James Bond. The upcoming 25th installment in the long-running franchise is already filming ahead of Bond 25's April 2020 release date.
      Craig signed on to play Bond for 2006's Casino Royale, and has starred in some well-received entries in the franchise, particularly 2012's Skyfall. It was believed, for a time, that Craig would end his run as 007 with 2015's Spectre, but then he signed on to return for one more movie, with Bond 25 marking his fifth appearance as the super spy. However, though Bond 25 started filming earlier this year and received a 2020 release date, it wasn't clear what the title of the movie would be - until now.


      The official James Bond Twitter revealed Bond 25 will be titled No Time To Die with a brief video teaser featuring Craig suited up as the agent, and reconfirmed the UK and US release dates of the film. The title isn't too far off from the one that was previously reported to have been scrapped: A Reason to Die. Check out the announcement below.

      After Danny Boyle departed the project, No Time To Die is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, from a script by Skyfall and Spectre writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, as well as Scott Z. Burns (The Bourne Ultimatum) and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag). In addition to Craig, No Time To Die stars Rami Malek, Léa Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Billy Magnussen, Rory Kinnear, Ralph Fiennes, Jeffrey Wright, David Dencik and Dali Benssalah. Further, the studio revealed an official plot synopsis for No Time To Die, which can be viewed below:



      In No Time To Die, Bond has left active service and is enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica. His peace is short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help. The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, leading Bond onto the trail of a mysterious villain armed with dangerous new technology.
      The No Time To Die title calls back to older James Bond movie titles, from before Craig's turn as 007, like 1973's Live and Let Die, 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies and even 2002's Die Another Day. Of course, whether No Time To Die is as well received as Craig's previous Bond movies, like Skyfall, remains to be seen. As the 25th entry in the film franchise, it marks a major milestone for James Bond in Hollywood and the creatives behind No Time To Die are no doubt striving to make it memorable. Hopefully all their hard work pays off and Craig ends his run as James Bond is style. Fans of the James Bond franchise will get to see what's in store from No Time To Die when it hits theaters next spring.
