Looks like all the rumors surrounding Danny Boyle, his being the frontrunner to direct the next Bond film, as well as his hopping on board to direct a Richard Curtis-written script, were all correct. Yes, he is up for directing Bond 25, yes he currently has a script in the works, and yes, he is still directing that comedy film before it.

But with another film set to be directed before he even starts Bond, is it still possible for it to start production before the end of the year? At a special screening for his new FX series Trust, Boyle said the following to the press (via Metro US).

“We are working on a script right now. And it all depends on that really. I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in 6 or 7 weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now. We’ve got an idea, [Trainspotting screenwriter] John Hodge, the screenwriter, and I have got this idea, and John is writing it at the moment. And it all depends on how it turns out. It would be foolish of me to give any of it away.”

So yes, unless something crazy happens, it looks like Boyle will be the man to direct Bond 25. The only question that remains is whether or not the film will be able to hit that November 2019 release date. If they begin filming by year’s end, it’s all too possible, but should it face the slightest delay in its continued development, that date could be a hard one to hit.
