With Bond 25 currently on the hunt for a director following the recent departure of Danny Boyle, now comes an update on who could be in the frame to replace Boyle.
Courtesy of Variety, it’s believed that the current shortlist of names is made up of The Imposter’s Bart Layton, Mistresses’ S.J. Clarkson, and ‘71’s Yann Demange. At this stage, it’s believed that Demange is the frontrunner for the Bond 25 gig.
Previously, Bond 25 was booked in for a November 9th, 2019 release, although that has been thrown up in the air a little following Danny Boyle’s exit. The last we’d heard, the film’s release was to be delayed a little, although if a new director can be brought in pronto then EON and MGM may still be able to hit that November 2019 date.
As ever, expect more on Bond 25 as it continues to develop.
