We can’t seem to get some good James Bond news lately as the project hits another major bump with possibly missing its scheduled November 2019 release date.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – With the abrupt exit of director Danny Boyle, the next installment in the James Bond film franchise — the untitled Bond 25— will miss its Nov. 8, 2019, release date in North American theaters, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.

It’s possible Bond 25 may not hit theaters until late 2020, according to sources. No recent Bond film has ever opened in summer. Even before Boyle departed, there was talk of pushing the movie’s release to early 2020.

Boyle and the Bond team were at odds over a script penned by Boyle collaborator John Hodge. A previous draft was written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who also wrote Casino RoyaleQuantum of SolaceSkyfall and Spectre.

It could take months to come up with a script that pleases all parties, including whomever Broccoli and Wilson hire to direct the movie.

MGM hasn’t confirmed that Bond 25 will move. Eon couldn’t immediately be reached for comment.

Bond 25 hits another major bump as Danny Boyle steps down as director over creative differences.

May 25, 2018

Eon Productions and MGM have set distribution plans for Bond 25. Universal Pictures will have international release as well as home entertainment releases. MGM and Annapurna will handle domestic distribution. Bond 25 is slated to be released in the UK on Octber 25th, 2019, and in the U.S. on November 9th, 2019. Production is scheduled to begin later this year on December.

DEADLINE – The deal was just closed by EON’s Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, MGM chairman of the board of directors Kevin Ulrich, MGM Motion Pictures Group president Jon Glickman and Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley. It puts the MGM logo front and center as distributor on a Bond film for the first time in nearly two decades.

As expected, Daniel Craig is back for his fifth film as 007, and Oscar-winner Danny Boyle is now set to direct a film that his Trainspotting partner John Hodge scripted based on an idea by Boyle, as Deadline revealed back in February. MGM and Danjaq weighed several directors, but then Boyle had his great idea and said he would direct, only if his concept was the one they went with. He had Hodge write a script that pleased everybody.

Wilson and Broccoli commented, “We are delighted to announce that the exceptionally talented Danny Boyle will be directing Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as James Bond in the 25th installment of the franchise. We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our international distributor.”

DEADLINE – In a move sure to make the Lion purr, MGM and Annapurna are thisclose to announcing they will team on the domestic release of the next James Bond movie. This all should be finalized this week, and rumors are flying today. This follows the announcement that MGM was joining forces with Annapurna in a joint venture, and the way this 007 deal will work is MGM’s Gary Barber and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are calling the shots, with Erik Lomis executing the domestic distribution and Marc Weinstock the marketing for the domestic release. While some might be surprised the historically conservative producers would entrust the crown jewel to a relative newcomer like Annapurna, Lomis worked on the distribution of Bond films before at MGM, and Weinstock marketed two of them while at Sony Pictures.
