James Bond: Danny Boyle Reveals His Scrapped Bond 25 Movie Plans

Danny Boyle’s departure from Bond 25 (eventually, No Time to Die) was huge news in 2018 as rumors swirled about the reasons why the Oscar-winning director left the beloved franchise. At the time, “creative differences” were cited for parting ways with Eon Productions. Since leaving the film, Boyle has opened up about why he quit Daniel Craig’s final Bond outing. But he’s never revealed much about the direction he wanted to take the international spy in. Years after giving up his Bond dreams, the Slumdog Millionaire director revealed what his scrapped No Time to Die movie plans were.

Eventually, he was replaced by Cary Fukunaga. But it appeared the Bond team and Fukunaga were still influenced by Boyle’s original plans that some elements were included in Craig’s Bond swan song. His ideas for the suave superspy have been a guessing game for many devoted Bond fans. After keeping his plans close to the vest, he opened up to Indie Wire about his vision for James Bond if he had stayed on for the film.

Weirdly — it would have been very topical now — it was all set in Russia, which is of course where Bond came from, out of the Cold War. It was set in present-day Russia and went back to his origins, and they just lost, what’s the word… they just lost confidence in it. It was a shame really.
