Bond 25 is currently set for release on April 8, 2020. Star Daniel Craig will once again reprise his role as James Bond, marking his fifth appearance as 007 on the big screen following his previous turns in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. Meanwhile, Cary Joji Fukunaga is on board to the direct the film. Fukunaga is best known for directing the first season of HBO's True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, and Netflix's Beasts of No Nation starring Idris Elba. Likewise, he also directed the recent Netflix series Maniac starring Jonah Hill and Emma Stone, and is credited as one of the writers on Andy Muschietti's It.
Fukunaga will be the first American born director to helm a James Bond movie. He replaces filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting) who was previously attached to direct the movie before departing the project over creative differences.
Plot details are unknown at this time, and it's not quite clear who is handling scripting duties, though writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are expected to be involved. In addition, reports also indicate that Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) has been brought on to tweak the screenplay. MGM will distribute the movie in the US while Universal will handle international duties.
