Bond 25 To Receive Rewrite From Bourne Ultimatum Screenwriter

The Playlist has reported that the upcoming ‘Bond 25’ will be undergoing a script overhaul from Scott Z. Burns. Director Cary Joji Fukunaga (‘True Detective,’ ‘Maniac’) will be helming Daniel Craig’s last outing as the titular character. Danny Boyle was originally going to direct the film, but creative differences drove him away from the project. Thus, Neal Purvis & Robert Wade came in to finish what they started all the way back in ‘Casino Royale.’ Along with that film, they did all of Craig’s other ‘Bond’ movies: ‘Quantum of Solace,’ ‘Skyfall,’ and ‘Spectre.’ But, that will not be the case anymore for the duo.

Burns made it big with ‘The Bourne Ultimatum,’ then went on to write three movies in a row for Soderbergh. Those films were ‘The Informant!,’ ‘Contagion,’ and ‘Side Effects.’ Moreover, he wrote two unproduced screenplays in the past: Soderbergh’s ‘Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ and David Fincher’s ‘20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.’ Burns also did an early draft of ‘Dawn of the Planet of The Apes.’ HBO’s ‘Vinyl’ was going to have Burns take over as showrunner for the second season, but that never came to be. Lastly, Burns was brought in by Ridley Scott to consult on the film that later became ‘Blade Runner 2049.’

Returning cast members include Ralph Fiennes, Lea Seydoux, Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw.

Further, with new an April 8, 2020 release, ‘Bond 25’ has the Easter weekend all to itself now, as opposed to the previous Valentine’s Day weekend it had. However, who knows what will happen next, as it currently needs to meet its April deadline to begin filming.
