Cary Fukunaga hired to helm ‘Bond 25,’ pushed back to February 2020

Cary Fukunaga has been announced as the new James Bond 25 director. The Emmy-winning director behind the first season of True Detective, and feature films like Jane Eyre and Beasts of No Nation will replace previous hire Danny Boyle to helm Daniel Craig‘s final adventure as 007.

Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced from the official James Bond Twitter that Fukunaga will helm the untitled 25th installment in the James Bond franchise.

Eon, the British production company that oversees James Bond also released a statement lauding Fukunaga’s talent and distinct visual style: “We are delighted to be working with Cary. His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure.”

Wilson and Broccoli, who have long shepherded the 50-plus year franchise, also added that production for Bond 25 had been pushed back to March 2019 with the aim of a worldwide release of February 14, 2020.

Fukunaga replaces Danny Boyle, who departed the production after only three months over the behind-the-scenes drama catch-all “creative differences.”

Slash Film notes that “Fukunaga is an inspired choice with a strong creative identity that could help lift the 007 franchise from its current crisis. Not to mention Fukunaga is the first American director to to helm a Bond film, and only the second non-white director after Die Another Day‘s Lee Tamohori. He could be the perfect collaborator to send off Craig’s acclaimed take on James Bond in his fifth and final film.”
