Seven months after leaving the project, Danny Boyle explained the reasons why he left James Bond's new film. The director, who left the twenty-fifth installment in August, in which the secret agent mentioned creative differences, made his first statements: "That was a real shame."
In a conversation with Empire, Boyle said that the script, written by John Hodge, co-author Trainspotting, "It was not done, but it could be really good". Director Steve Jobs (2015) or A millionaire with slums (2008) added that he was not reluctant to leave the project and the new director.
After leaving Boyle and confirming Cary Joy Fukunaga (Beast without a nation, A real detective) as the new director, James Bond still does not have a new title, although leakage suggests that the movie could be called Eclipse.
"We worked very, very well, but they did not want to follow this path with us," he continued. "So we decided to leave the project, and it would be unfair to say what it was, because I do not know what Cary wants to do, and I get a very nice message from him and I want him the best."
Rami Malek, recent Oscar winner for Bohemian Rhapsodyis negotiating his possible role as a villain of the film. On the other hand, Billy Magnussen (Velvet Buszzsaw) would play the CIA operative in a new secret agent movie that Daniel Craig will play for the last time.
The production of the film will start in spring and will be premiered on April 8, 2020. Meanwhile, Boyle is preparing the premiere of his new film, Yesterday, a musical comedy.
