Bond 25 Hasn’t Moved Off 2019 Release Date…Yet

If any of those filmmakers accepted, chances are Bond 25 would keep its date, I'm told. The other two helmers who were on a short list are Hell Or High Water's David Mackenzie and Yann Demange, the '71 director who helmed White Boy Rick. Some of that depends on whether the producers stick to the script John Hodge wrote from an idea by Danny Boyle, or if they return to the script written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. Stay tuned.” /> Nobody is talking, but I've heard an approach was made to Jean-Marc Vallee, who followed Dallas Buyers Club with the limited series Big Little Lies and Sharp Objects. I've heard his participation is unlikely due to scheduling.
The film hasn't abdicated its November 8 release date, not yet at least. The decision rests with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson, and they are keeping things close to the vest. Speculation is high that Bond 25 has moved off its release date after Danny Boyle's exit, but sources tell Deadline that it might be wishful thinking by rival distributors. It is possible that if a replacement director is named within the next 60 days, that Daniel Craig's last outing as 007 can keep its date, sources said.
