  • James Bond through the years

The announcement was made by the official 007 Twitter account on Thursday Morning, stating that producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, as well as Daniel Craig, had chosen Fukunaga as the next director.

U.S. filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga will direct the next James Bond movie, set for worldwide release on February 14, 2020, the franchise's producers said Thursday after British director Danny Boyle quit the project last month.

Fukunaga replaces previous Bond 25 director Danny Boyle, who stepped down from the project in August.

Filming will begin at Pinewood Studios on 4 March next year.

Kavanaugh's prep school pal: Ford's wrong, I was never at party
Professor Blasey Ford says Mr Kavanaugh pinned her on a bed and tried taking off her clothes during the high school party. Christine Blasey Ford remembers me as the other person in the room during the alleged assault". "We're better than this".

Boyle allegedly refused to kill James Bond off, as he reportedly fought against Daniel Craig and Barbara Broccoli's plans for Bond to die "in dramatic fashion" at the end of the next movie. He could be the ideal collaborator to send off Craig's acclaimed take on James Bond in his fifth and final film.

The producers were said to be interested in Scottish director David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water) and Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049) before the Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire director was hired. Actor Said Taghmaoui recently revealed that he had been cast as the main antagonist in the film, but was unsure whether or not he'd be retained without Boyle.

The release date is a shift from tradition, with Bond movies usually released in November or December, however, due to Boyle's unexpected exit, clearly something had to give in terms of scheduling, with a November 2019 release looking increasingly unlikely.
