Danny Boyle quits Bond 25 due to creative differences

Danny Boyle quits Bond 25 due to creative differences

James Bond will return, just not with director Danny Boyle.

Universal was set to release the film in the United Kingdom on Oct 25, 2019.

The James Bond franchise has lost the next 007 and a director. Many fans were anxious that Craig would not come back for his fifth outing, as he was notably exhausted of the experience after the release of Spectre back in 2015.

Djokovic to face Cilic as Cincinnati title dream draws closer
Cincinnati remains the only one of the nine Masters 1000 events that the Serb star hasn't won. "That's why I'm here", he said. Djokovic is looking to write history by wrapping up the ninth Masters 1000 title that has eluded him throughout his career.

The hunt for a James Bond director is nearly as tricky as any time it's time to recast the role itself. Variety reports MGM had long wanted Boyle to helm a Bond flick; he was selected to fill the shoes emptied by Sam Mendes, who directed 2012's Skyfall and Spectre, which was out three years later.

The 25th Bond film is scheduled for USA release on November 8 next year.

The brief statement read, "Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has made a decision to no longer direct Bond 25". Here is the full statement released on Twitter. News of Boyle's exit from Bond 25 comes directly from the producers of the longtime series, who welcomed the director aboard 007's next assignment in late May following months of rumors suggesting that Boyle - whose credits include Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire - would be next in line to steer the franchise. This news is certainly concerning for anyone with high hopes about Bond 25, but it more than likely would have been a lot more concerning had it leaked from any other source than Sony.
