Yann Demange 'flattered' to be re-considered for Bond 25 directors job

26-Aug-2018 • No Time To Die

Yann Demange is back in contention for the director’s role on the next James Bond film, according to The Guardian

Demange, who won international acclaim for his first film, the Belfast thriller ’71, which starred Jack O’Connell, said only that he was “very flattered” by the speculation sparked by last week’s news that director Danny Boyle had dropped out of helming Bond 25.

Days before the premiere of his latest film, the A-list crime drama 'White Boy Rick', Demange, 41, is back on an elite shortlist of talent under consideration. And in comments that will do nothing to quash the rumours, the director, who grew up in west London but has been working in Hollywood, said he was longing to get back to his roots.

Demange was on the short list of directors for Bond 25 before Danny Boyle was signed up. It was thought that Demange, who apparently surprised producers with his pitch for the film, was upset at being dropped for Boyle.
