Director Danny Boyle has broken his silence about exiting the upcoming “James Bond” film.
Boyle had been working on “Bond 25”, however it was confirmed back in May that he’d left the project due to “creative differences.” Director Cary Joji Fukunaga and regular “James Bond” writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are now doing the honours.
Speaking out about his departure, Boyle told Empire of the eagerly anticipated movie: “What John [Hodge] and I were doing, I thought, was really good. It wasn’t finished, but it could have been really good.”
“We were working very, very well, but they didn’t want to go down that route with us. So we decided to part company, and it would be unfair to say what it was because I don’t know what Cary [Joji Fukunaga] is going to do. I got a very nice message from him and I gave him my best wishes… it is just a great shame.”
Since Boyle’s departure was announced, “Bond 25” has faced a fair few delays. However, the latest release date has now been announced; April 8, 2020.
The upcoming flick is thought to be Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as 007.
