If a new rumor is to be believed Bond 25 makers are eyeing Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie to helm the next James Bond installment. Bond 25 currently remains without a director after Danny Boyle quit the project due to creative differences.
According to Variety’s Justin Kroll, McQuarrie’s name is already being considered to fill the directorial void for the Bond 25 gig. However, he has also cautioned fans to take the information with a hefty pinch of salt as nothing has been confirmed yet.
“Take this with a grain of salt but a name already being floated as a replacement is McQuarrie. This is just a rumor and has no clout behind it but is an obvious choice following FALLOUT. Not sure if he would be up for it since he has said he wants to do original material,” Kroll’s tweet read.
McQuarrie already has an experience of directing thrilling and fast-paced action movies like Rogue Nation and Fallout. So, it won’t come as a surprise if he indeed bags Bond 25, which will be the Bond franchise’s 25th installment.
Boyle’s exit from the project was announced on Twitter on Tuesday through the official James Bond brand’s Twitter account.
“Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli, and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences, Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25,” the tweet read.
Talking more about the film, actor Daniel Craig will be seen reprising his role of James Bond in Bond 25. This will be Craig’s fifth appearance as the MI6 agent. The filming was scheduled to begin at Pinewood Studios in London in December this year. But, now, it remains to be seen if Boyle’s exit from the project will affect the film’s production and release.
Bond 25 is currently scheduled to release in the UK on October 25, 2019, and in the U.S. on November 8, 2019.
