Cary Joji Fukunaga has been announced to direct Bond 25. The official James Bond twitter revealed the news a couple days ago. He replaces Danny Boyle who departed the project late last month. Fukunaga is best known for directing the entire first season of True Detective (winning an Emmy in the process) and 2015’s Beasts of No Nation.
“We are delighted to be working with Cary. His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure," said Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. (2/2)
