Bond 25: True Detective's Cary Fukunaga replaces Danny Boyle as director

USA 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. "Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has chose to no longer direct Bond 25", the statement read.

Filming begins next March for a worldwide release date of February 14th, 2020, which marks quite a change for the franchise given that they tend to drop around November or December.

"We are delighted to be working with Cary".

Bond is back on. His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure, said producers Wilson and Broccoli on Fukanaga's appointment.

Fukunaga replaces Danny Boyle, who stepped down as the film's director in August.

Butler asks for deal from Timberwolves
Butler averaged 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists in almost 37 minutes per game last season. Charania adds that Butler made his desire to be traded clear to Thibodeau during their meeting.

Jimmy Butler requests trade from Timberwolves
Something, Andrew Wiggins' brother made clear that he loved so much as he celebrated on Twitter upon hearing the news . In 59 games for the Timberwolves last season, Butler averaged 22.2 points per game on 47.4 per cent shooting.

The timing of this announcement couldn't be better for the new helmer, who hails from the first season of True Detective.

He also wrote and directed the 2009 film Sin Nombre and the 2011 film Jane Eyre.

Fukunaga also directed the 2015 war film Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba.

Obviously, there are a couple interesting bits of trivia here, the largest being Fukunaga becoming the first American to deliver a Bond picture (discounting the off-brand 1967 Casino Royale or Never Say Never Again). He could be the ideal collaborator to send off Craig's acclaimed take on James Bond in his fifth and final film. At least that's your Valentine's Day date sorted for that year.
