“Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle has confirmed that he's working on the next James Bond movie.
The filmmaker made the admission to Metro New York on Wednesday night at a special screening in New York of his new FX series “Trust”.
“We are working on a script right now,” he said when asked if he's directing the next film in the franchise. “And it all depends on that, really. I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in six or seven weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now.”
Boyle has long been in MGM and Eon's sights to board a Bond movie, dating back to 2012's “Skyfall” and 2015's “Spectre”, reports Variety.
He also said he does not yet know the details of when and where “Bond 25” will shoot. Daniel Craig is set to return to star in the new Bond movie. MGM and Eon announced in July that the film would open on Nov. 8, 2019.
