Bond 25 gets new director, is pushed back to early 2020

Bond 25 found its replacement director and will be pushed back to early 2020, Eon Productions said early today.

The new director is Cary Joji Fukunaga, who replaces Danny Boyle who departed the project last month.

Filming now is scheduled to start March 4, 2019, according to the announcement. The previous start date was Dec. 3.

Eon said the “worldwide release date” is Feb. 14, 2020. Previously, Bond 25’s U.S. release date was in early November 2019.

Fukunaga, 41, has directed a mix of films and TV series. He was born in Oakland, California, making him the first American to direct an entry in the 007 film series. Two non-Eon Bond films, 1967’s Casino Royale and 1983’s Never Say Never Again, had American directors (John Huston and Irvin Kershner).
