Perhaps sensing an imminent split due to 'creative differences,' Danny Boyle spoke to the Radio Times just 5 days before his departure from Bond 25 with an ominous quote about how anyone who is a 007 'aficionado' would struggle to helm or write a film for the series.
He said: ‘The books were everything to me when I was a kid. I read them multiple times."
"Like everyone else, I saw the films, but I’d already read the books so I had a different relationship with the characters."
"Although I think it’d be impossible for a Bond aficionado to write or direct a Bond film."
"You’d be hampered by how much you knew. They want you to bring a freshness to it."
