It was announced today that Bond 25 has been pushed back to a new release date. Instead of February 14, Daniel’s final Bond film will open on April 8, 2020.

DEADLINE –  MGM’s Bond 25 will open April 8, 2020 now, instead of Feb. 14, 2020. That new date is the Wednesday before Easter, and currently 007 is the only major pic on that new date.

Bond 25 leaves behind what was a very crowded Valentine’s Day weekend next year with an untitled Disney live action movie, Fox’s Nimona, and Universal’s Will Packer untitled romance production.

As previously reported, Beasts of Nation helmer Cary Joji Fukunaga stepped in to direct Daniel Craig after Danny Boyle decided not to steer the project.

007 scribe regulars Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are back writing the Eon production.

Cast returning include Ralph Fiennes, Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw.

Universal will be handling overseas on Bond 25 while MGM handles distribution.

We finally got some good news regarding Bond 25. It was announced today that Cary Fukunaga will take over as director of the movie. Filming begins on March 04, 2019 with a new release date set for February 14, 2020!

It was announced today that Daniel will star as a detective in the murder mystery film, Knives Out. Before anyone gets worried, this project fortunately won’t affect his return for Bond 25.

DEADLINE – In a move that will surely swing some of the focus from awards season launches to the acquisitions market at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival, U.S. and foreign distributors will be bidding for Knives Out, a contemporary murder mystery that will star Daniel Craig as a detective assigned to solve the crime, with Rian Johnson directing.

The film is best described as a modern day murder mystery in the classic whodunit style, infused with Johnson’s original voice that informed films from Brick to Looper.

Boyle’s abrupt exit from Bond 25 gave Johnson and Bergman an opening to pursue Craig, if he was up for squeezing in a movie before returning to his 007 franchise. When Craig sparked to the script and signed on, a hot package came together, just in time for the Toronto market.

“I have been a huge fan and always wanted to work with him and as I worked on the script, trying to get it right, Ram and I were wringing our hands over who could be the detective,” Johnson said. “Then, serendipitously, we heard Daniel might have a small window, and it worked out. He’s an actor of extraordinary range, and we are looking forward to the fun of finding that modern detective, and collaborating with Daniel on creating a new Poirot.”

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.
