Danny Boyle to Direct the Next James Bond Movie?
Take this rumor with a very large grain of salt; The Sun is reporting that Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is being offered the chance to direct the 23rd James Bond film. Of course, Boyle is probably getting a ton of studio offers after his Academy Award and Golden Globe wins. But according to the UK newspaper/gossip sheet, EON Productions is “leading the chase.” It might be worth noting that Callum McDougall, who produced Boyle’s 200 film The Beach is also an executive producer on the project. So what are the chances this might be true, or that Boyle will end up directing the next Bond film? One would assume that his current situation would allow him a chance at more interesting and original projects. [/film]
