As the search for a new director for Bond 25 continues following the departure of Danny Boyle, the latest development indicates that MGM and Eon have shown interest in what would be the first female director for the franchise.
As reported by Sweater Sleeve Long Embroidered Pullover Simple Plain Letter xgwRqR7U S.J. Clarkson, who is set to direct Star Trek 4, is one of the new choices being considered alongside American Animals' Bart Layton and White Boy Rick's Yann Demange. If chosen, Clarkson would be the first female director to lead a Bond film.
Demange was one of the front-runners to direct Bond 25 before Danny Boyle took over to helm James Bond's next adventure.
"Sit-down meetings" are still in the works for Clarkson and Layton, and while Demange has already had initial meetings, the producers still wish to see the finished version of White Boy Rick, which wasn't ready for their first meeting, before making a decision one way or the other.
Dog Round Long Neck Cute Shiba Letter Cartoon Sweatshirt Pullover Sleeves Printed Time is short for MGM and Eon as if they wish to keep the scheduled release of November 8, 2019 as they would need to start filming on or near the scheduled date of December 8, 2018 to avoid a delay.
In addition to Clarkson, Layton and Demange, Mission: Impossible - Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie and Neck Tee Letter Long HELLO Spring Basic Hem Print Round Sleeves Dipped fSwgqY are also in the running.
This search stemmed from Danny Boyle stepping down over "creative differences" that may have reportedly have been due to a dispute in regards to Bond 25's villain.
If Clarkson is chosen to direct Bond 25, she will have the honor of being the first female director to direct a Bond film and an entry in the Star Trek franchise. In the past, Clarkson has directed episodes of The Defenders, Jessica Jones, Orange is the New Black, and Dexter.
