True Detective director to make next Bond movie

James Bond through the years

James Bond will return.

"Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig announced today that #Bond25 will begin filming at Pinewood Studios on 4 March 2019 under the helm of director, Cary Joji Fukunaga with a worldwide release date of 14 February 2020", read the statement. Oscar-winner Danny Boyle recently departed the project over creative differences.

"We are delighted to be working with Cary", say producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, confirming the story to Deadline.

The filmmaker has been described as a "left field" choice by the James Bond International Fan Club, but that his hiring is "in keeping with the art house, independent sensibility" of other names that had been attached to the franchise.

The Daniel Craig-starring film will be released on February 14, 2020. Bond 25 had previously been scheduled for a November 2019 release. In August, the announcement of Boyle's exit was shared on Bond's Twitter handle.

Boyle's wish to cast Polish actor Tomasz Kot, 41, as the film's main Russian villain may have been one of the creative differences, according to The Daily Telegraph.

The producers were said to be interested in Scottish director David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water) and Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049) before the Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire director was hired.

It is thought Bond 25 will be Craig's last outing as 007. He was wooed to return with a hefty $25 million paycheck, excluding a cut from the profits.

His latest project, Maniac, is a Netflix series starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone as participants in a mysterious pharmaceutical trial.

The American is known for directing the first series of the Sky Atlantic show True Detective and the acclaimed 2015 film Beasts Of No Nation which starred Idris Elba.
