JAMES BOND 25: Danny Boyle Is Reportedly The Favorite To Direct The Next 007 Film

The Oscar-winning director is the latest name to be considered MGM's top choice for the 25th entry in the James Bond franchise. Hit the jump to read why the studio is looking to take this new direction...

There is a new director at the top of MGM's list for Bond 25. Variety is reporting veteran director Danny Boyle is the favorite to land the job after a change of heart by the studio's brass. While French filmmaker Yann Demange was originally MGM's top choice for the film, the studio is reportedly looking for a more well-known name to helm this movie.

Boyle certainly fits that description, as he has directed a variety of different kinds of films to great success. With movies like Trainspotting, 28 Days Later and the Best Picture-winning Slumdog Millionaire, Boyle is a truly versatile filmmaker. The British director is currently working on Trust, a series about the Getty family that will air on FX.

Boyle has said before that he was interested in making a Bond movie and even directed a short film featuring 007 that was played during the 2012 Olympic opening ceremonies.

This news comes after another star director, Christopher Nolan, confirmed that he was out of the running for the untitled spy film.

Do you think Boyle is a good choice for the Bond franchise? Comment below!
