Tipped Bond 25 director Yann Demange linked to new project

06-Mar-2018 • Bond 25

French director Yann Demange, who was said to be the favourite to helm Bond 25 after impressing EON Productions and Daniel Craig (and when Denis Villeneuve said he was unavailable), must have felt a little tweaked by the news that MGM was backing Danny Boyle to helm the next 007 adventure.

Today it was reported that Demange will not only be directing the upcoming Matthew McConaughey movie 'White Boy Rick', but is also teaming up with Jordan Peele and J.J. Abrams for HBO’s television series Lovecraft Country. Demange will direct the first episode and executive produce the series.

With Boyle also announcing another project that could clash with the Bond 25 production schedule, EON and MGM may be back at square one looking for a director.

Does anyone know if Martin Campbell is busy?
