James Bond: Cary Joji Fukunaga replaces Danny Boyle as next 007 director

Danny Boyle's replacement as director of the 25th James Bond film has been named as Cary Fukunaga.

Cary Fukunaga will direct the next James Bond movie.

The appointment of the True Detective helmsman was announced via the official Bond Twitter account, along with a release date now slated for February 14, 2020.

The announcement was made on Thursday morning that the 25th outing in the 007 franchise will begin filming at Pinewood Studios in the United Kingdom on March 4, 2019.

'We are delighted to be working with Cary. "His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure", added producers Wilson and Broccoli.

When Danny Boyle unceremoniously exited Bond 25 (over dreadfully vague "creative differences"), we despaired.

Fukunaga's films include the 2015 war drama Beasts of No Nation, which he not only directed, but also wrote, produced and oversaw cinematography.

Rumours were rife about Craig and Boyle clashing over other casting issues - with the actor being said to have signed off on all major new signings since he began his tenure. He made a splash with his directorial debut Sin Nombre in 2009, and impressed with his (highly underrated) 2011 Jane Eyre adaptation, which traded Gothic interiors for a stunningly naturalistic take.

Fukunaga, who had not been tipped for the role, will become the first American to direct a movie in the storied spy franchise, which began life on the big screen in 1963.

The film will be Craig's fifth and final appearance as Bond after starring in "Casino Royale", "Quantum of Solace", "Skyfall" and "Spectre". At least that's your Valentine's Day date sorted for that year.
