The word from the ‘not so truthful’ Sun is that Danny Boyle, director of Slumdog Millionaire, following his Oscar win and press attention, has been offered the next James Bond gig. Possibly joining Callum McDougal again, after previously working on Boyle’s Beach adaptation together. Classified as rumor for now.
A source said: “Danny is the man of the moment and he is being bombarded with offers from studios.
“He has been offered the chance to direct the 23rd Bond film by Barbara. The EON team love his vision and think that it would work perfectly for the new look of Bond.
“Danny has always insisted he is more interested in the film than the money.
“However, with Daniel Craig’s involvement and the way the films are now structured — with the emphasis on the characters and plot rather than gags and gadgets — it is right up Danny’s street.
“Everyone on the EON team thinks Danny would be a fantastic addition to the Bond family.”
