BOND 25 Goes Back To The Drawing Board and The Release Date Will Be Pushed Back
After director Danny Boyle and the producers of Bond 25 parted ways due to creative differences on the upcoming film, it was expected that it would be delayed. Now THR is reporting that Bond 25 will miss its previously announced November 8th, 2019 date. The report says that the film is now looking at releasing the film in the summer of 2020, and this would make it the first Bond film ever to get a summer release date.
The producing team, which includes Barbara Broccoli, Michael G. Wilson and actor Daniel Craig, will need time to find a new director to take on the project and once they have one, they will start from scratch on developing the story.
The report goes on to say that Boyle and the Bond team were "at odds over a script penned by Boyle collaborator John Hodge." There were also reports of a casting dispute over who should play the villain. It's also said that the project could take months to come up with a script that everyone will be happy with.
I still think it's a shame that things didn't work out with Boyle. I was very much looking forward to seeing what his vision for James Bond would be. Hopefully they are able to bring on another talented director that will get fans excited.
