Danny Boyle is signed up to direct Bond 25
Trainspotting director, Danny Boyle, has signed up to direct the next James Bond film - the twenty-fifth in the franchise. In an interview with Metro US, Boyle confirmed his involvement in the film adding "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 6 or 7 weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now"
Boyle had been rumoured to be in talks for some time, but this is the first confirmation from someone actually involved in the project that he is indeed lined up to direct the film which will star Daniel Craig.
Boyle went on to say "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."
MGM will be releasing the as-yet-untitled Bond 25 on 8th November 2019.
