    Danny Boyle left the film over a dispute in casting

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/08/22/danny-boyle-quits-bond-dispute-films-russian-villain/

    Boyle wanted to cast Tomasz Kot as the villain but Craig vetoed it. So Boyle bailed.

    Eon are also unhappy with the overly political tone of the script and its Russia themes. Though, this is disputed.

    Apparently, Boyle was sacked.

    It seems as though Barbara never wanted John Hodge on the movie. They may go back to the P&W script which is described as more traditional.

    0005L8VJ3ERLR20S-C122-F4.jpg

    I find it hard to believe a seasoned pro director like Boyle would quit a 200 million dollar type budget Bond film just because one of his actor suggestions was vetoed. That sounds a ludicrous reason to jump ship. My guess is he had some panic attack, had nightmare thoughts about how he can keep the film on budget, how to deal with all the other units working on the film. Let's not forget, he said he didn't feel he was right for these sort of films.

    "I like watching big films but I don't think I'm necessarily good at making them. Then I thought, 'No, you shouldn't think like that. The unknown is exciting. The fear is very important. If you repeat yourself you don't ask yourself enough questions, you don't feel the fear about what you're doing because you feel you know what you're doing.

    I feel this quote is very telling. He revealed a potential weakness. The guy is only human. If the pressure got too much he might have had concluded: "this isn't worth it."

    My gut feeling/wild guess is he quit because the scale of the film was too much and/or he couldn't face having Barbara, MG or the studio constantly hassling him with revisions to the script or other creative choices. He is not a big budget director, he admitted it himself, so reality probably hit him smack in the face. "Oh no, this is real, come December I will have to commit to seven months filming this big film. Do I need it, can I deliver? Will it make me happy?"

    My guess is he realized, "no, I don't need it, perhaps I can deliver it, but no, it won't make me happy."

    I think this will not delay the film much, if at all. I am merely guessing, but I'll go ahead and guess we have a named director within three weeks.

    I'm guessing the film will be delayed another year, the Hodge script abandoned, and Craig will eventually walk.

    Is that wishful thinking? Maybe not you but our friend Mendes is simply chomping at the bit that this is an opportunity for Turner to get cast.

    I think it's unlikely they'll abandon the film, a new director will be found and they'll be up and running and with Hodge's script in play.

    My instinct is that they will push ahead with the Hodge script, with directorial changes, as and when they hire someone. As far as I’m aware production design is rolling, although not advanced and they are in the early stages of casting.

    Based on nothing but instinct I do wonder whether Boyle was overwhelmed by the scale and perhaps felt unable to accommodate the producers’ requests. It happens. Balancing your creative vision with an avalanche of other creative and commercial obligations is no small feat.

    Whether Boyle walked or was ‘let go’, I’ve every faith Barbara made the call for the right reasons, so can we cool it on the ‘EON are cancer’ vibe?

    Anything could happen right now, intel is scarce. I’m waiting to hear a little more before speculating further.

    Full agreement; I also feel it’ll be the Hodge script (perhaps with a few doctors on board to do the polishes)...

    And yes, wondered if a director like Boyle was overwhelmed with the scale...

    Nice to see some sanity from you both, some of the comments here are a mixture of those going hysterical and thinking it's all over and Craig will walk or a delay and the release put back and those who are pleased and hope this possibly sabotages Daniel's return.

    I agree with you both it will be Hodge's script with a polish, I hope not P&W though, the last time they took a script and polished it rather than them being polished was SPECTRE and I hate the film.

    I know it could have been much worse without them stepping in although I don't want to consider how much more terrible it could have been but I think it's time we said goodbye to these 2 and we got new blood in for the polish.

    I don't imagine we'll have too long to wait on a replacement though, I think this is still heading for it's original schedule till something different gets said.

    So lets just wait for an anouncement before chucking our dummies out the pram.

    Jeez Panchito Pistoles - were you force fed broccoli as a child and vowed revenge on anything that bears that name?

  • Quite a surprise to hear that Danny Boyle has left due to "creative differences"

    I can imagine the EON meeting


    BB : So Danny. We are still waiting for you to hire a DP so we can move ahead.

    DB: Well Barbara. I was thinking of shooting the whole thing myself on a GOPRO that I just ordered from Amazon. Hasn't turned up yet.

    DC: Babs get SAM on the phone right now! I need a word!

    While I would love Sam Mendes to return to save the day I don't think its likely. He's currently in pre-production on his WW1 film for Amblin (distributed by Universal) thats starts production in April for a Dec 2019 release.

    +1 post of the day.

    I am quite optimistic that they will find someone soon and sort everything out. This announcement can lead to something better, if Boyle didn't want/could commit then it's a good thing he left and that he did so 3 months before production began. It had been worse if this situation came up even later on.

    Buckle up boys and girls, I am sure we will hear something new very soon!

    Are we all certain that John Hodge has now been fired?

    There is surely no way that Eon have retained his services. I think the great irony is that if they want to make the December start date, they'll have to ask P&W back. They are Eon's writers. It's hilarious as their old script was tossed out for Hodge's draft. Now they'll be the ones to fix the script to Eon's specification.

    This whole 'Danny Boyle experiment' has been such a farce. Personally, I think if Eon want an auetur they need to leave them to get on with it. You don't hire Danny Boyle and then get annoyed when he won't listen to you. Filmmakers like Boyle and Mendes have individualistic sensibilities. That's the reason you hire them!

    I hope the film is delayed a year and Daniel Craig walks. Then this guy can play 007...

    I rarely, rarely comment on here and enjoy watching those who contribute. However this post just pushed me. Can people stop pushing this idea of Elba, a jumped up, poorly skilled, egotistical and social-media abusing second rate "actor" who on a basic level is just too old to play the role. Message ends.

    - Danny Boyle grew frustrated after numerous clashes with Daniel Craig.

    - the film will be delayed till 2020 and because Craig is growing restless, he'll probably resign too.

    Personally, I don't think Craig is as much of an asshole as this article suggests but I think there were clear clashes across the board, but Craig is only the actor onboard, Barbara and Michael keep him in shape. Becasue Craig is the public face of Eon, he's the guy taking the battering at the moment.

    I think it would be pretty petulant on both sides to either walk off a film over a casting disagreement or to sack someone over it. On films of this nature casting would always be a compromise between the director and the producers. Maybe it just became apparent that this wasn't a way Boyle wished to work.

    It's a disheartening time to be a Bond fan. Craig got off to such a great start with CR but each subsequent film has been blighted by one problem or another and the gaps wider and wider. I still wish for a fifth Craig film and for him to leave on a high if possible but nerves will be strained until the cameras roll.

    The media smelt blood after the wrist slitting comment and the recent (resurged) frenzy over the suggestion of Idris Elba hasn't helped. Onlookers and the media will generally be indifferent over who directs the film. Craig being a diva or pushing for a new and more radical casting for Bond is what will drive the narrative and sell their papers now.

    Long story short: Barbara Broccoli is more toxic now than she had ever been. As long as she is running the show, no respectable director will want to touch Bond ever again. The last time her actions resulted in a good movie was back in 2006. Yes, Skyfall was great. It was great because of Mendes. And who had the idea to get Mendes on board? It wasn't Barbara Broccoli...
  • edited August 2018 Posts: 1,644
    I just thought... what the heck, Eon should contact Christopher McQuarrie and see if he's interested. If he signs up - delay production for a few months or delay Bond until spring 2020. He may want a small break to recover from making Fallout.

    If people genuinely believe MI Fallout has surpassed Bond then get that director to do Bond 25. Sure, it's shameless opportunism but does it matter? No-one is going to care if the film turns out good. It's about time an American director had a crack at Bond.

    McQuarrie (if he is says yes) for Bond 25.

    Chris Nolan for Bond 26. New actor cast.

    I think that will appeal to most fans. Craig fans get to see their guy in a MI action style Bond film and Nolan gets the chance to reboot/mould Bond to his vision in Bond 26. A new actor will inspire Nolan to want to make Bond 26. A new actor, new take on the character.

    It's getting a bit old now.
  • Money, release date and many of the production team are in place. Keep Craig, work on the script, adjust locations if necessary and maybe start shooting in February with release date put back to Christmas 2019. Only problem remains signing a director who can pull it off.

    Thank you.
  • With all these "stories" getting published in the press EON will need to do some damage control. And fast.

    Possible outcome : film gets delayed by 5 months and heads for a March 2020 release.

    previous shelved P&W script gets the go ahead with a fresh polish (wonder if they come back after being shelved twice and then being asked back twice)

    Dennis Gassner comes back (probably already had a lot of work done already based on the previous P&W draft before being replaced by Danny Boyle with his own production designer)

    A new director is assigned with an added 5 months pre-production schedule for a start date in May 2019

    Bond 25 opens to stellar reviews (98% on rotten tomatoes) and huge box office in March 2020






  • Just give me Yann DeMage and a Neal Pervis/Robert Wade script so I can move on already.

    One leaves the boards for a while and then comes back to this?

    I'm very curious to know your age and birthplace, PanchitoPistoles. Were you born after the 90s? It's just that your ignorance and attitude bewilder me. Not picking a fight here, mate, I'm really just curious. As you have a clear aggressiveness in you, an hostile forcefulness usually very criticised in forums in general. But hey, please, do continue to badmouth Barbara Broccoli, who, for all we care, keeps protecting the Bond property with all her heart.

    Jeez, whats wrong with people today? Seems everyone wants a bite of everyone. We don't know anything. Really, anything at all about what happened.

    Oh, and this Idris, or Turner, or Hardy crap as to stop. It's getting really dumb. But I guess dumb is the way to go nowadays, right?

Even if he stays can they knock the Purvis/Wade script into shape and have a competent director in place to meet the 3rd December deadline? Also the production has been geared around the Hodges script, the Purvis/Wade script is unrelated..........big change of direction for the production.

    But do we want that?
    At the end of the day I want a good bond film and this whole rushing thing can’t be can it?

    Well, Hemsworth can't act, can't carry a movie, and has no box office draw if he's not playing Thor.

    Other than that -- no, I have no doubts.

    Obviously we have different appraisals. Lol.

    Isn’t he Australian?
    We know how that went last time...
    You are kidding. right? So ALL Australians are the same? It was because he was an Aussie that Lazenby didn’t ultimately work out?
    Actually, considering his virtual lack of any acting experience, he was quite good; had he done more films, he would have grown into the rol nicely.

    No but in the same way a black shouldn’t play bond, I don’t think an American/ Australian should either.

    Australia is in the commonwealth.

    So is Bangladesh.
    Doesn’t mean that the country should qualify for bond actors

    Britain is filled with suave British Asians. An Asian bond is more realistic than a black bond.
    Charlize Theron is an African American. Country of origin doesn’t always dictate appearance.

    A m e r I c a n
    ???????
    Yes

    Ugh, she’s not American

    'Charlize Theron (born 7 August 1975) is a South African and American actress and film producer.'

    Okay, she’s still not an African American or her Wikipedia would read as such.
    She’s an A f r I c a n

    African American refers to something else

    She is African American. Period. Sorry you had to learn this only now but being an african-american is not a matter of skin colour but a matter of citizenships.

    One leaves the boards for a while and then comes back to this?

    I'm very curious to know your age and birthplace, PanchitoPistoles. Were you born after the 90s? It's just that your ignorance and attitude bewilder me. Not picking a fight here, mate, I'm really just curious. As you have a clear aggressiveness in you, an hostile forcefulness usually very criticised in forums in general. But hey, please, do continue to badmouth Barbara Broccoli, who, for all we care, keeps protecting the Bond property with all her heart.

    Jeez, whats wrong with people today? Seems everyone wants a bite of everyone. We don't know anything. Really, anything at all about what happened.

    Oh, and this Idris, or Turner, or Hardy crap as to stop. It's getting really dumb. But I guess dumb is the way to go nowadays, right?

    Post of the day right here.
