Director Danny Boyle quit 'Bond 25'

Danny Boyle’s departure from the 25th James Bond film has led to many speculations. While initial rumours suggested that the director left due to casting disagreements, recent reports suggest otherwise.

As per The Sun, Boyle apparently quit due to “ridiculous” plot demands, asking him to kill off Agent 007 at the end of the film. Boyle is said to have refused to comply and so, chose to depart the project citing “creative differences.” Actor Daniel Craig and producer Barbara Broccoli wanted Bond to die in a ‘spectacular finale’ – an idea Boyle is said to have disliked. The report quotes a source as saying, “There were discussions about killing off Bond in a dramatic fashion at the end. It would also leave it open for a twist in the next installment – either Bond hadn’t died or there could be a Doctor Who-esque regeneration with a new actor.”
