JAMES BOND 25: Here's The Real Reason Why Danny Boyle Walked Away From The Movie

We recently learned that James Bond 25 has lost director Danny Boyle due to "creative differences" (yes, those again) and some more details have now emerged shedding some light on the real reason why...

Just weeks before James Bond 25 was expected to start shooting, we learned that director Danny Boyle had walked away from the movie due to "creative differences." Now, some new details about what actually happened have surfaced and while we initially heard that producers were unhappy with the script focusing on a Russian villain and a "modern-day Cold War," it also said that an even bigger issue was Boyle's desire to cast Polish actor Tomasz Kot (Cold War) as the movie's unidentified lead bad guy. 

Apparently, he was viewed as a "left-field" choice to play the character and it sounds like Daniel Craig may not have been entirely happy with the decision as he plays a key role in all casting choices. 
 
It sounds like things were bad from the start, though, as longtime Bond producer Barbara Broccoli was reportedly "infuriated" by Boyle's insistence that he bring in his own team, including writing partner John Hodge (which resulted in a script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade being put on hold). Whether or not that will now be used remains to be seen but it's now unlikely the movie will meet its planned release date on October 25th, next year. So, what comes next for the franchise after this upheaval?

There's already speculation that Daniel Craig will now walk away from the role and 007 will be recast but we'll have to wait and see. What do you think comes next? Share your thoughts in the usual place!
