News | James Bond Will Be Back With a New Director


James Bond fans rejoice!!!! Daniel Craig will be back as the dashing 007 for the 27th James Bond film.  Filming will start March 4, 2019 and this will be Craig's fifth installment of the franchise.  

For this one however, he will be directed by Cary Fukunaga.  An award winning director at the Sundance Film Festival in 2009 (Sin Nombre), he made Jane Eyre in 2010 with Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender.  Additionally he won also at the Emmy and BAFTA for directing True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.


His latest acclaimed work was for his drama, Beasts of No Nation starred by Idris Alba in 2015.

A ground breaking trivia was hatched with this film, as Cary Fukunaga will be the first ever, first american director to meg a James Bond film.  We all know that the franchise ONLY favors the British.  From products (except maybe for the Omega, some Italian Suits and BMW at one point) to directors, they typically get only that of the British.  This film will surely be exciting to watch and see how an american director will spin a British franchise to new heights.

Another thing to watch here is the fact that will this be Daniel Craig's last James Bond film?  Many have speculated that Spectre was his last and he made hints of it near the end.  We are glad that he will be back again ready to defend and fight for her majesty the Queen.

Based on the latest twit from the official bond twitter account, the film will be shown Valentine's Day of 2020.  We love you James Bond.
