Danny Boyle has quit as director of the next James Bond film "due to creative differences", the production team has announced.

Of course, Daniel Craig is back as 007 but nothing else is known about the film. The official James Bond Twitter account announced the news Tuesday.

"Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has made a decision to no longer direct Bond 25", reads the tweet from the official 007 account.

Before Boyle came on, names like Yann Demange ('71), Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049), and Christopher Nolan (you know who he is) were mentioned in connection with the director's chair, although it's not clear if any of those talks were ever serious.

Bond 25: A Difference Of Creatives is now scheduled for release on 8th November, 2019.

Production at the legendary Pinewood Studios was slated to start in early December, but now Eon Productions needs to find a replacement director.

It is likely to be Craig's final appearance as Bond, fulfilling his five-film contract.

The film is being produced by EON Productions, with Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson returning.

It's not the first time creative differences have been blamed for a director's departure from a major franchise recently, with Solo losing both Phil Lord and Christopher Miller mid-production a year ago. After all, Boyle's T2 Trainspotting screenwriter John Hodge wrote the original screenplay for the film, which will mark Craig's fifth time portraying the iconic 007 agent. Ron Howard eventually took over.
