Producers had already announced that the movie, set for release next April, will be directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the man behind the first season of the USA drama "True Detective" and the Netflix comedy "Maniac".

"I'm stuck here in NY in production but I am very much looking forward to joining the whole cast and crew very soon", the Oscar-winning Bohemian Rhapsody actor said in a pre-recorded video. It will continue under its working title of Bond 25.

That was it, and I'm sure we can all agree it was well worth our news editor getting out of bed at 5am for: you can relive all twenty minutes of the magic right here on YouTube. We did get to see a very quick behind-the-scenes clip showing the building of the set for Bond's Jamaican holiday home (at the tail end of the video above). I think he's been terrific. Daniel Craig was visibly surprised after Malek's message. "It's gonna be thrilling". "I really just don't want to even think about if and when we have to replace him". Sadly, it seems that those rumors about Lupita Nyong'o joining up had no basis.

Ralph Fiennes (as M), Naomi Harris (as Moneypenny), Lea Seydeoux (as Madeleine), Ben Whishaw (as Q), Rory Kinnear (as Tanner), and Jeffrey Wright (as Felix from Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace) will also be returning. "It's a tradition now".

The 25th Bond film will be directed by Cary Fukunaga, who attended the launch event with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson. The tropical country is a staple in the series, having served as main settings for Dr.

Indeed, the livestream closed out with a first look at the construction of the waterside house James will be living in at the very beginning of the story. The upcoming instalment will also travel to Norway, Italy and London. But Broccoli and Wilson, in an interview by phone from Jamaica, said they aren't ready to contemplate a new 007 yet. The acclaimed British filmmaker brought on frequent screenwriting partner John Hodge to deliver a script based on Boyle's idea and everything was looking good as Universal Pictures greenlit their efforts... only for Boyle and Hodges to both walk out seven months later over "creative differences". Maniac's Cary Fukunaga directs.

The writing team for the movie will also feature Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

Bond 25 - the official title of which has not yet been revealed, will be Daniel Craig's fifth outing as 007 and will be released five years after the 24th Bond film, Spectre.
