Danny Boyle quits as director of next James Bond Film

Idris Elba sparks 007 casting rumors with a James Bond remix

Ultimately, the question becomes: Will this impact the long-in-place November 2019 release date of the film?

The team behind the upcoming James Bond 25 movie have announced a big change: Danny Boyle will no longer serve as director.

Filming for the new film had not yet begun, as EON productions revealed filming was due to start at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire in December.

"We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our worldwide distributor". MGM and EON Productions plan to release it in the United States two weeks later.

Boyle was set to work alongside Trainspotting writer John Hodge, who was to create an original screenplay.

Of course, Daniel Craig is back as 007 but nothing else is known about the film.

In fact, the first version of his statement released to the media Wednesday was dated July 26, 2018. Cyber Command, testifies during a House Armed Services Committee hearing on May 23, 2017.

Bond 25 will be Daniel Craig's final outing as 007 after playing the role in four movies prior: Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. Anyway, there's only one man for the directing job: Elba, Idris Elba.

The son of West African immigrants fueled speculation earlier in August that he could be named the first black James Bond, with a cryptic tweet.

Elba, 45, made his name in gritty USA television drugs drama "The Wire" and won a Golden Globe for his role as a murder detective in "Luther", before moving to the big screen.

If you were thinking things were a little too quiet on the James Bond front the last few months, now we know why.

The franchise's official social media handle said that Wilson, Broccoli and star Daniel Craig made the announcement, and that it was Boyle's decision.
