Tabloids claim Guy Ritchie is on Bond 25 director shortlist

18-Sep-2016 • No Time To Die

This week's James Bond rumour from The Daily Mirror tabloid surrounds the director's job. Given that Sam Mendes has been adamant that he will not be returning for a third time at the helm, the search for a director for Bond 25 is real.

Guy Ritchie was 'slammed' in the media for flying to Los Angeles this week after his ex-wife Madonna arrived in London to spend time with their son. The Mirror claims the real reason the director disappeared to LA was to meet Michael G. Wilson.

“Guy has moved up the shortlist and is now the front runner. He’s meeting Michael this week to try to do a deal and see if they can agree on a shared vision for the film.”

"Guy is under serious consideration for Bond 25 and this LA trip should help take this further. He doesn’t have Sam’s artistry, but Guy is a fast-paced, stunt-based director who knows his stuff. He also has on his side the ability to keep calm and balance a big budget.”
