Originally, the film was slated for release in the United Kingdom on October 25, 2019 but Variety believes a domino effect could be set into motion during pre-production, thanks to disagreements over Boyle's script.
Bond 25 producers, presumably Wilson and Broccoli, were allegedly unhappy with the script, which Boyle worked on with screenwriter John Hodge.
In a new report published by The Hollywood Reporter, sources say that the November 2019 release date may very well get pushed back to 2020 in light of recent events.
Boyle came on board with two stipulations, the first being permission to finish his other project, a comedy which he planned to shoot in summer 2018 and the second that he would be allowed to write the script along with Trainspotting co-writer Hodge. Some people have suggested that its apparent topicality - referencing the #MeToo movement and potentially Russian involvement in geopolitics - could have proved too hot a potato for Bond head honcho Barbara Broccoli's palate.
These include actor Jonathan Pryce, who is quoted in the Daily Mail as saying that the producers parted company with Boyle because "they obviously couldn't take a socialist Bond". The actor Mark Strong has also been linked to the role. With that in mind, Boyle's disagreement with Craig over casting could have been the ultimate reason why Boyle made a decision to leave Bond 25. The former has apparently signed off on all major new signings - including Bond girls - since he began his tenure.
Kot, 41, can now be seen in Pawel Pawlikowski's film Cold War, which had its premiere at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
Assuming this is correct, one supposes Daniel Craig is still onboard, as his name was front and center on the announcement made about Boyle's departure, but it also seems possible that a delay - particularly one pushing the production back months, if not an entire year - could cause some friction there.
