Danny Boyle no longer directing Bond 25

Danny Boyle

Danny Boyle is no longer directing Bond 25, Eon Productions said in a very short statement:

Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25.

Some things of note:

–The prominence of Daniel Craig’s name. He was one of three co-producers for 2015’s SPECTRE. Has he been promoted to share the Bond 25 producer’s credit with Broccoli and Wilson?

–No mention of how this affects the Bond 25 schedule. In late May, Eon said Bond 25 would start filming on Dec. 3.

–Creative differences has long been used in the movie business to explain away things when a production hits a major snag.

  1. Me thinks that he was intimidated by the size of this project. He did not sound confident when he accepted this gig.
