Danny Boyle will no longer direct Bond 25, according to reports. The director, who directed Slumdog Millionaire was officially confirmed to be working on the next film in the James Bond franchise earlier this year.
However, in a post on the series’ official Twitter page, it was announced that he would no longer be involved in the movie. “Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, and Daniel Craig said that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25,” the tweet read.

The film is currently scheduled to be released on October 25, 2019, in the UK, with a US release following on November 8.
Craig is expected to make his final appearance as the spy in Bond 25, although it was reported earlier this year that he could appear in the 26th film in the long-running franchise too.
