Returning cast members for another movie include Craig, Ralph Fiennes (Skyfall), Lea Seydoux (Spectre), Naomie Harris (Moonlight) and Ben Whishaw (Paddington two ).
Bond 25 has seen its share of problems over the last year. It was originally to be directed by Danny Boyle, who exited the job suddenly this summer over creative differences. This delayed production while the studio was forced to look for new supervisors, before finally landing Cary Joji Fukunaga, famous for directing the first season of HBO’s True Detective.
The as-yet-untitled Bond 25 is scheduled to hit cinemas on April 8, 2020.

Burns was paid on the Bond 25 script, from for four weeks of work. He performed a similar role over a decade back for another large spy movie, The Bourne Ultimatum, doing a page-1 rewrite on a allegedly disappointing script by Tony Gilroy. He also composed an unproduced version of spy film The Man From U.N.C.L.E. for director Steven Soderbergh, with whom he’s had a successful relationship (The Informant! , Side Effects, Contagion, The Laundromat). This was although EON Productions has attempted to ditch Burns to write on Bond entrances.

Only yesterday it was reported that MGM’s 25th James Bond film was pushed back from Valentine’s Day 2020 to April 8, 2020. Currently The Playlist brings word that ace screenwriter Scott Z. Burns has been hired to do a gigantic overhaul of the current Bond 25 script by show mainstays Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, which apparently did not satisfy some of the significant players involved. Shooting on the sequel is expected to begin in April.
