Danny Boyle to Write Next James Bond Movie

Director Danny Boyle has confirmed that he will be writing the next film in the James Bond franchise, and he plans to give the movie’s female characters a “modern” twist. “We are working on a script right now,” Boyle told Page Six, adding that he is collaborating with John Hodge. Asked whether the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements would influence his portrayal of women in the film, Boyle said the script would be written in “real time.” “You acknowledge the legacy of the world [of Bond] and you write in the world—but you also write in the modern world as well,” he told Page Six. No timeline was given for the project, but the Trust producer said work would get underway on the film closer to the end of the year.
