James Bond and Danny Boyle are in pole position to direct the new film!
Variety announces that Danny Boyle is the first choice of MGM to the direction of the new James Bond film. Deadline adds that Boyle proposed an idea for a story of James Bond to Daniel Craig when the director directed the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. During the ceremony was broadcast a movie in which Craig, in the role of 007, he met the Queen of England. Boyle is writing the new Bond film with John Hodge, his collaborator on Trainspotting 1 and 2.
Boyle was interested in directing another film for Working Title, a subsidiary of Universal Pictures, but would be inclined to return the carriage to take care of 007.
Boyle won the Oscar for directing Slumdog Millionaire, and is known for having directed the horror film 28 days later, the sci-fi Sunshine, 127 Hours, the trap-movie with James Franco based on a true story, the biopic of Steve Jobs.
Borys Kit of the Hollywood Reporter adds that Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, the upcoming remake of Dune), David Mackenzie (Hell or high water) and Yann Demange (Dead Set) are out of the running for the director.
Christopher Nolan (the trilogy of the Dark Knight, Dunkirk) was recently called out by the eventual application.
Daniel Craig will return for the last time in the role of James Bond.
The film will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, already writers of Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre, and should be taken from The dreams don't kill, written by Raymond Benson and published in 1999. The villain will be the blind Pierre Rodiac. Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista should be back in the role of villain interpreted in the previous Spectre.
Beyonce would be in talks to sing the main song of the new film.
