The 25th James Bond movie will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga

James Bond through the years

U.S. filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga will direct the next James Bond movie, set for worldwide release on February 14, 2020, the franchise's producers said Thursday after British director Danny Boyle quit the project last month.

Fukunaga replaces Danny Boyle in the director's chair, after he unexpectedly pulled out in August, citing "creative differences" with Wilson and Broccoli, throwing the production into turmoil. But everything's back on track with a new statement confirming the next filmmaker to take the helm of Britain's most famous spy series: Cary Joji Fukunaga.

'We are delighted to be working with Cary. "His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure", said Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli in a tweet.

Notably, Fukunaga wasn't on the supposed director shortlist that surfaced in the wake of Boyle's departure, which included the likes of Bart Layton, SJ Clarkson and Yann Demange.

He rejected the official death toll of nearly 3,000 people and claimed Democrats manufactured the figure to make him "look bad". The president leaned over and checked in with people as they drove through to pick up food. "You take care of yourself".

The acclaimed film, on which Fukunaga was also cinematographer, won a handful of industry awards, including the Independent Spirit Awards for best male lead for Abraham Attah and the best supporting male for Elba, and a George Foster Peabody Award for excellence.

The 25th Bond film, confirmed as Craig's last outing as 007, will begin filming at Pinewood Studios near London on 4 March next year.

Filming was supposed to begin this December but to avoid missing the November release date, shooting would have needed to begin in January 2019 at the latest.

The Bond series producers revealed the news in a tweet today.
