Boyle was previously announced as the director of the 25th movie in the 007 franchise, which will once again star Daniel Craig as the iconic secret agent.
The movie, which is currently untitled, has a November 8, 2019 release date. Production is to begin on December 3 of this year.
Prepare for the internet to go crazy with suggestions on who should take over the director reins. And the producers will have to hustle if they want it to make its November 2019 release date.
