For a secret agent, James Bond’s not doing a great job of keeping his comings and goings private at the moment. We just found out 007’s next film, the 25th in the long-running franchise, will open in November of 2019, and according to The New York Times, Daniel Craig is expected to reprise his role as James Bond. Now Deadline got word of the frontrunners to direct the still-untitled film.
The McConnaissance is still upon us, with Matthew McConaughey having lent his vocal talents to both Sing and Kubo and the Two Strings this year, as well as starring in Free State of Jones and just completing production as the Man in Black in next year’s The Dark Tower adaptation. Today, it was announced that the star is in negotiations to play the father of a police informant and a drug dealer in Yann Demange’s White Boy Rick.
