The greatest spy of all time, James Bond is set to officially return as particulars related to James Bond 25 were finalized. The movie has been talks for a quite long however now things are being put into the right places. It was announced that EON productions, the owner of Bond rights have chosen Universal Pictures for the International distribution while previously announced MGM Studios and Annapurna Pictures will look after the domestic distribution. Alongside, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has been finalized to helm the movie with the screenplay from John Hodge (Trainspotting). The filming for much-anticipated suspense-thriller will commence on December 8th and will hit the theatres in the UK on October 29th, 2019 and US on November 8th, 2019.
So, now everything is looking perfect but what about the actor who will be portraying the role of stylish yet killer spy? To put an end to this question arising in your mind, Daniel Craig will be returning to reprise the role. The exciting thing to watch out in yet untitled Bond movie is the approach taken by Danny Boyle. The director has recently has given a fantastic movie T2: Trainspotting sequel to the hit Trainspotting which brought Danny Boyle into the limelight.
Before finalizing Danny for the Bond 25 the EON Productions went through names like Yann Demange (’71) and David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water). But in February Danny Boyle’s name came out of nowhere and the primary reason behind it was the original idea pitched by him and John Hodge the writer Trainspotting. The deal was that John Hodge would write the script for the Bond 25 and if the producers loved it, then Danny Boyle and John will take charge of the movie. Now, the existing Bond script from the veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade will be kept aside.
It will be exhilarating to see my personal favorite James Bond portrayed by Daniel Craig back in action again. The schedule for the upcoming Bond 25 will be very tight as currently, Danny is working on a smaller scale original musical for Working Title this summer starring Kate McKinnon, and as soon as the production for this one ends he will have to shift into the Bond 25 mode quickly. It is good that everything is official and we can expect something extraordinary in Fall of 2019.
