Recently the currently untitled next James Bond film, known for now as Bond 25, took a huge blow in production as director Danny Boyle and the Bond production team split due to creative differences. Though there are a few rumors floating around about the reasons – which include not being able to agree on a cast – it’s not clear what happened between the two.
Now there is a much bigger issue. Without a director, the film cannot move forward with production. Which means that Bond 25 could miss its release date. More on the story below.
Bond 25 is without a director. Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, the producers who have been overseeing the James Bond franchise since the ’90s, and star Daniel Craig have announced that Danny Boyle will no longer be directing the next film in the series.
According to them, they split over “creative differences.” A term that is often thrown out there whenever something like this happens. In any case, the lack of any sort of development for the film was very telling. Now Wilson and Broccoli will have to start over and look at replacements if they want to get production started soon. And please don’t suggest Christopher Nolan. But more on that a little later. Check out the full story below.

When you think of the James Bond films or really any of Ian Fleming’s 007 tales, you think of cool cars, quirky bad guys, and amazing gadgets. But James Bond: M, a new one-shot comic from Dynamite Entertainment, approaches things a little differently. This time it is all about the man behind the agent.
James Bond’s return to the big screen is pretty much inevitable. Though the franchise has hit a few speed bumps in the past few years, its new direction with Daniel Craig as 007 was a darker turn for the character. Still, it wasn’t quite clear if Craig would reprise his leading role, seeing how Spectre was one of the weakest films of the entire franchise. However, EON Productions has announced a new release date for James Bond 25, and there are unconfirmed reports that Daniel Craig will indeed return to reprise the role. More on the story below.

Bond. James Bond. Iconic and straightforward, just like the man himself. As a matter of fact, this might be both his greatest strength and most crippling weakness. In the newest tale from Dynamite Entertainment, Ian Fleming’s James Bond 007: Black Box #1, this is explored and exploited in equal amounts.
