JAMES BOND 25 Is Getting A Rewrite From Scott Z. Burns A Few Months Before Production

With production looming, the producers of the still untitled 25th James Bond movie are scrambling to get a satisfactory script for Daniel Craig's final outing as the iconic British spy. Check it out...

As announced a few days ago, the twenty-fifth entry in the James Bond franchise had been pushed back two months from its original February 2020 premiere date to April, just in time for Easter. Many were wondering the reason for the delay, whether it be for strategic box office profit or production troubles internally. Thanks to The Playlist, we now know why.

According to the outlet, the producers and MGM have recruited acclaimed screenwriter Scott Z. Burns to do emergency rewrites on the script.

The production has been delayed to make way for Burns, who will be going off a script from franchise veterans Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. The known script doctor has previously written The Borne Ultimatum and has reworked blockbusters such as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. His directorial debut, The Report, was just aquired by Amazon for $15 million, after critical acclaim at the Sundance Film Festival.

The Playlist further notes that the rewrite is a full overhaul due to the current quality of the screenplay, and that Burns may be end up being James Bond 25's only credited screenwriter.

Will Daniel Craig's final appearance as the spy be fitting one? We'll just have to wait and see.
