RUMOR: Boyle Quit Bond Over Idea To Kill Off Craig’s 007

Oh, boy. So there’s a new rumor that’s hit surrounding director Danny Boyle’s recent departure from Bond 25. Now, before I go into this, it’s worth noting that this is from The Sun. As such, be sure to take this with the smallest grain of salt possible, as they have led us astray in the past. Regardless, it is a rumor with discussing, as it could hint at a potential direction the producers were thinking with the franchise.

According to the outlet, producers on the film wanted Craig’s Bond to die in a “spectacular finale,” basically bringing his tenure as 007 to an end:

“There were discussions about killing off Bond in dramatic fashion at the end. It would also leave it open for a twist in the next installment — either Bond hadn’t died or there could be a Doctor Who-esque regeneration with a new actor.

Boyle himself reportedly thought the idea was “ridiculous” and this was one of the reasons he eventually left the project, they state. But that wasn’t the only thing they couldn’t agree on:

“There were clashes over budget and there’s pandemonium among crew with people leaving the production left, right and centre. There are fears the film will be put back months and backroom staff are worried about where their next pay cheque is coming from.”

Interestingly enough, the idea of killing off James Bond is something we’ve discussed in recent episodes of Los Fanboys, and while we can’t confirm this, it wouldn’t be the biggest surprise in the world if the producers had been on board with this idea.
