James Bond 25 is Back in Action With a New Director

By Kim Snaith on at

Last month, the production of the next James Bond film was thrown up in the air when Danny Boyle left the role of director. Citing creative differences, the Trainspotting director stepped away from the project, leaving Bond 25 with no director.

Now, it seems that role has been filled. Cary Joji Fukunaga has taken over as the director of the film, and filming under the new helmer will begin in March 2019. Californian Fukunaga might not exactly be a household name, but he has some impressive credits to his name. He wrote the screenplay for last year's remake of Stephen King's IT, and he directed and produced the first series of True Detective - the good one, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

The news was shared on the official James Bond Twitter account along with the film's release date: it's slated to come to cinemas on 14th February 2020. At least that's your Valentine's Day date sorted for that year.
