Movie Production:

In early 2016, work began on No Time to Die. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson approached longtime Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade in March 2017 about penning the script for the upcoming film.  For the film, Purvis and Wade worked together in 2017 to develop the plot. After directing Skyfall and Spectre, Sam Mendes announced that he would not return. Christopher Nolan stated that he would not be directing. At the end of July of 2017, Yann Demange, David Mackenzie, and Denis Villeneuve were all being courted to direct the movie. Villeneuve turned down the position in December 2017 because of his obligations to Dune. Danny Boyle emerged as the leading candidate for the director’s job in February of that year. Boyle’s original idea rejected by Broccoli and Wilson, and John Hodge chosen to write the movie based on it. Boyle will direct, and production will begin in December 2018, after Hodge’s approval of the script. Boyle and Hodge, on the other hand, parted ways in August 2018 due to a rift in the creative team.  “Cold and charismatic Russian” and “witty and clever survivor” were two descriptions of the principal roles in a leaked casting sheet during Boyle’s stint as director. It rumoured that Boyle’s departure was because of a disagreement about the script, not the casting of Tomasz Kot as the main villain.
