James Bond 25 screenwriter John Hodge QUITS after Danny Boyle: Will Daniel Craig walk too?

It was looking so good for Craig’s fifth and final outing as .

Trainspotting director and screenwriter, Boyle and Hodge, were set to bring in a modern-Cold War era thriller to see the actor’s incarnation out.

However in the last 48 hours Boyle has quit over a casting disagreement, allegedly over the villain, with Craig and producers.

And now Bond 25 has lost its screenwriter too.

According to the , a spokeswoman for Hodge revealed: “No, he’s not working on it.”

Allegedly the 54-year-old was concerned Bond 25 would be delayed at least a year.

Originally the film was – and still technically is – set to start shooting at Pinewood Studios on December 3, to meet an October 2019 cinematic release.

However with Bond 25 now lacking a director and screenwriter, it seems very likely a delay until 2020 will soon be announced.

Of course such big changes and a deal may be too much for Craig and he could decide to walk.

If such a case occurred presumably EON productions would delay and make Bond 25 the reboot with a new actor.

Enter Idris Elba directed by Christopher Nolan perhaps?

Bond 25 is for a UK release on October 25, 2019, but may get delayed.
