‘James Bond 25’ set: Danny Boyle directing Daniel Craig as 007, set for 2019

The legal battles are over and Universal Pictures has won the international distribution rights and the physical home entertainment rights for the highly-anticipated 25th installment in the long-running James Bond franchise.

MGM and Annapurna will handle domestic distribution as part of their recent joint venture.

The tentatively titled Bond 25, which will see Daniel Craig return as 007 for his fifth adventure, will arrive in U.K. theaters on October 25, 2019, and then opening in the U.S. two weeks later on November 8, 2019.

Here’s the announcement on Twitter:

“We’ve been expecting you… , Daniel Craig’s 5th outing as 007, will be directed by Academy Award-winning Danny Boyle from an original screenplay by John Hodge. Production is set to begin on 3 Dec 2018. MGM will partner with Universal Pictures to release the film worldwide” – @007

It will also debut a week after Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 2 (November 1) and ahead of Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog (November 15), Skydance’s Terminator 6 (November 22), and Disney’s Frozen 2 (November 29).
