Daniel Craig is believed to be returning for his final appearance as 007 in the as yet untitled film – and it looks like we finally have a director.
Everybody from Sam Mendes to Christopher Nolan has been rumoured for the job, but it looks like Danny Boyle has bagged the gig.
According to Metro US, Danny is writing a script with Trainspotting screenwriter John Hodge.
The 61-year-old said: ‘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.’
Danny continued: ‘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.’
Boyle is best known for directing Slumdog Millionaire, for which he won the best director Oscar in 2008, and Trainspotting.
He also was at the helm of Shallow Grave, 127 Hours, Steve Jobs, The Beach and 28 Days Later, while he was the artistic director for the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony.
Bond 25 is expecred to be released in late 2019.
