New Bond 25 Rumor May Explain Why Danny Boyle Left

Danny Boyle Could Have Left Bond 25 Over Villain Casting Dispute

Though no reason was given at the time of the official announcement, a new report may offer some insight into what exactly led to Boyle's "creative differences" - and it may have had more to do with Daniel Craig than with the series' producers.

The tweet, posted on 21 August, said: "Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has chose to no longer direct Bond 25".

Filming had been due to begin in December at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, but it could now take months to come up with a new script.

Alcohol was the most lethal factor in the 15-49 age bracket, responsible for more than 12 percent of male deaths. Across the globe, one in three people drink alcohol, equivalent to 2.4 billion people, according to the report.

As The Playlist points out, the question now is whether the film moves forward with John Hodges' script or reverts back to whatever Neal Purvis and Robert Wade previously put to paper.

The Hollywood Reporter stated that Bond 25, which was slated to release in North America theatres on 8 November, 2019 will be missing its original opening date, with sources claiming it may not hit the screens until late 2020. Boyle had his eye on Tomasz Kot, a lesser-known Polish actor who recently starred in the acclaimed period romance Cold War. Apparently this idea was considered a "left field" decision, and it sounds like Daniel Craig played a notable part in making it happen, as he has a "big say" when it comes to casting.

While the status of the next Bond installment is in flux, Craig remains at the center, despite increased speculation about who might take over the role in future outings.

There have already been reports about Danny Boyle having left Bond 25 due to the producers disagreeing with him about his decision to depict a "modern day Cold War" with Russian Federation, but a source that spoke with The Telegraph claims that Boyle's exit was instigated by him not wanting Tomasz Kot, an actor who's starred in Polish productions like Spoor and Cold War, as the chief antagonist.

Other suggestions include Christopher McQuarrie, who just delivered two Mission: Impossible films back-to-back and expressed his reluctance to make it three, and Jaume Collet-Serra.

Even worse, we now have to wait even longer to see it.
