The next Bond movie is back in business. Cary Joji Fukunaga of television clout is on to replace Danny Boyle as the new director of the 25th movie in the spy franchise.
Fukunaga has been on a hot streak ever since his Emmy-winning direction for 2014’s True Detective. The director won acclaim for his 2015 war movie Beasts of No Nation and is already seeing praise for his new Netflix miniseries Maniac. His style is slick, cinematic and just a bit edgy, a good fit for what is assumed to be the final James Bond movie with Daniel Craig at its center. (h/t Variety)

The new Bond movie will begin production in March, with a release date set for February 2020. The movie’s been pushed back ever since Boyle left the project. It was supposed to come out Nov. 8 of next year, so if you had already banked on that as your out for Thanksgiving dinner, better find a backup plan.
