French-Algerian director Yann Demange seemed to be the shoo-in candidate to helm Bond 25 after Danny Boyle departed the production. He had been tipped as a front-runner before Boyle came out of left-field.
The 'White Boy Rick' director is now saying that was more talk than truth: “I didn’t pitch. When I was in post, they approached me and we talked and that was it," he told Yahoo News.
“I tried to look for something that I could make and felt personal, even though I’m not going to write myself or do a biographical film,” Demange recalls. “Now I feel relieved it’s out there.
“It was all hot and it’s gone all tepid on me, now I’m about where I should be.”
