    Looks like the scoop we were waiting for checked out: Release date, production start date, distributor announcement, and Boyle/Hodge confirmed.

    While it's great to get so much solid news finally, Annapurna strikes me as maybe too small an outfit to handle such a huge film as Bond. But then again, I trust EON knows what they're doing. Plus, since Annapurna is one of the few film companies to also have its own gaming division, maybe this means we're a step closer to getting another Bond video game.

    I had a feeling Universal would get this instead of Sony or Warner. Great news as far as I'm concerned.

    What do we know about Hodge? Confirmed it's his script (with Boyle's ideas). If already discussed, just give me the page # in the thread to read about him, please. Screenwriter so incredibly important.

    I looked briedly on internet for facts on Hodge but I'd like your opinions. I am not familiar with the films he has scripted.

    And here is a quote from the article:

    Wilson and Broccoli commented, “We are delighted to announce that the exceptionally talented Danny Boyle will be directing Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as James Bond in the 25th installment of the franchise. We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our international distributor.”

    “Under the leadership of Michael and Barbara, we couldn’t be more thrilled than to bring the next 007 adventure to the big screen uniting the incomparable Daniel Craig with the extraordinary vision of Danny Boyle,” said Ulrich. Glickman added, “It has been 16 years since Tomorrow Never Dies was distributed by MGM and it’s incredibly gratifying to be releasing this film alongside the powerhouse team at Universal.”

    “Universal is extremely proud to collaborate with Michael, Barbara and MGM on the international marketing and distribution of Bond 25,” said Langley. “The unparalleled combination of Danny’s innovative filmmaking and Daniel’s embodiment of 007 ensured we simply had to be partners in the next chapter of this iconic series.”

    At least we can lay our fears of an extra year or two delay to rest.
    Looks like B25 is set to roll.

    So happy things are confirmed at last to be moving ahead. Glad Boyle and his idea worked out, too. Excited to see what he will do.

    Glad that what we already knew has now officially be confirmed. I'm really excited with universal being the WW distributor and seeing Boyle and Hodge's names attached...gives us something new and exciting to look forward to; especially Boyle directing. I'm starting to get CR/QoS era levels of excitement.

    Now over the next 6 to 7 months we'll get casting news and a possible synopsis of what this film's going to be about. I just pray it's not lame and for crying out loud London/UK should only be used for the briefvscenes involving Bond getting his assignment!

    It's not Annapurna, per se. It's the joint venture that MGM set up with Annapurna to distribute each other's movies in the U.S. Annapurna's loto may or may not appear on the film. The first movie released under the joint venture, the Death Wish remake, I believe only had an MGM logo.

    I haven’t read the whole article, but did Universal take that one-picture deal? Or is it an open contract?

    Great news, finally!

    It is not specified. Only Bond 25 is mentioned
