The status of the next James Bond film was up in the air when Danny Boyle left the project due to creative differences.

Well now the producers and movie studio have found a new director to fill the role and the release date has been pushed back by a couple of months.

James Bond 25 will no longer be releasing in 2019 as the movie had to be delayed until the early part of 2020. More information about the film can be seen below as posted by the official James Bond Twitter page.

"Michael G. 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.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli also commented with the following joint statement: "We are delighted to be working with Cary. His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure".

Even though a new director has been named, Daniel Craig will still be starring in the main role as James Bond.

This is expected to be his last time playing the character as someone new will be taking over after James Bond 25 is released and made.

Cary Joji Fukunaga is a renowned director as he directed some episodes of True Detective as well as the movie called "Beasts of No Nation".

It appears the director is what the studio wanted since Danny Boyle wanted to change a lot of things.
