Maybe you’ve heard, but there’s been a rumor circulating that Danny Boyle (of Slumdog Millionaire fame) was to direct the new Bond film! From this rumor’s moment of conception, I was in disbelief. This is not a director who is looking to cough up a blockbuster. His resume attains to as much, anyway.
So who started this filthy lie? One source who sowed the seed was none other than The Sun. Boyle, himself, set the record straight at an interview with Entertainment Weekly. He is quoted saying, “I have no plans to direct one…I don’t know who came up with the story, but please tell them I’m very flattered to be thought of!”
