CONFIRMED: Danny Boyle will direct James Bond 25 later this year!

May 25th, 2018 by Marc Comments

While Trainspotting director Danny Boyle said a few weeks ago that he would likely be directing the next James Bond outing, today it was made official.

The 25th Bond movie will see Daniel Craig return as James Bond 007 for the fifth time and it will begin filing before the end of this year, with the official James Bond Twitter putting out a post this morning confirming Boyle is attached, saying: Daniel Craig’s 5th outing as 007, will be directed by Academy Award-winning Danny Boyle from an original screenplay by John Hodge. Production is set to begin on 3 Dec 2018. MGM will partner with Universal Pictures to release the film worldwide

We’re all in for this and imagine that the man who directed 127 Hours and 28 Days Later will bring levels of suspense and excitement to the franchise that the fans love.

What say you all? Are you excited to see Boyle doing Bond?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
