James Bond will be back in 2020 and fans can be rest assured that the British superspy will return to keep the tradition alive. There has been a delay because Danny Boyle left due to some difference with a section of people who matter. He was supposed to have directed Bond 25 and the task will now be taken over by an American. He is Cary Fukunaga and the tentative release date is Valentine’s Day 2020.

Sky News reports that the film is yet to be named and the storyline is also not disclosed but, all Bond Movies are usually based on international intrigue and Bond 25 could follow the trend.

It had originally been scheduled for release in October 2019. However, in view of Danny Boyle opting out, fresh dates have been announced. The director’s job has now been handed over to Cary Fukunaga.

Bond 25 will be in safe hands

The man who will direct Daniel Craig is no newcomer to the film industry. Cary Fukunaga (41) did his first feature film in 2009. It was “Sin Nombre” for which he bagged an award at the Sundance Film Festival. He followed it up next year with an Oscar nomination for costume design in the film “Jane Eyre.” Then came an Emmy and Bafta award for directing the show “True Detective.” More recently he got recognition for “Beasts Of No Nation” – a war drama that starred Idris Elba and was released in 2015.

He also has a new TV mini-series “Maniac” to prove his credentials.

Obviously, Bond 25 will be in safe hands as Daniel Craig will don the garb of James Bond for the fifth time. It could be his last appearance in the role of super spy 007. There had been rumors that Idris Elba could be a new James Bond but he has denied that.

Filming of the latest Bond movie is expected to begin at Pinewood Studios in March next year.

Fans of James Bond are waiting

According to BBC, the next James Bond film will be directed by none other than Cary Fukunaga who is doing the Netflix series “Maniac.” Producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have been impressed with the works of Cary and have selected him because they believe that he can deliver the goods.

There were others in the fray and the baton has finally been hand over to Cary. He has handled a variety of subjects and has proved his worth. It is true that he has not handled action movies. That should not pose much of a problem because he will have experienced people in his team who will bridge the gap. Bond movies are fast paced, have beautiful women and are shot in exotic locale across the world. The director of such a mix must be a visionary and Cary hopes to fit the bill.
