A few months ago it was revealed that Danny Boyle was going to direct the 25th James Bond movie starring Daniel Craig for one final time.

Well now things are looking shaky because it's being reported that Danny Boyle will no longer be directing the movie.

The official James Bond Twitter page made the shocking announcement today. As of this moment, there are no additional news about anyone replacing Danny Boyle. Anyway, you can read the announcement posted down below.

"Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25."

It's interesting to note Daniel Craig along with the producers weren't happy with Danny Boyle's direction of the movie. The movie's late 2019 release date has been left unchanged so it sounds like they need to find a new director ASAP.

Main production for the film does not start until later this year so a new director will have to step up soon.

Christopher Nolan won't be replacing Danny Boyle as he said he's more interested in directing a James Bond movie with a new actor instead of Daniel Craig.

It also remains to be seen if the removal of Danny Boyle affects a huge part of the script.

Originally, the film was to cast a Maori actor to play a tough henchman. This role could be changed if a new director is on board.

Hopefully more news of James Bond 25's new director is revealed very soon. It will be a bit of a shame if the release date has to be delayed further due to this shocking bit of news.
