We don’t know much about the 25th movie in the James Bond franchise yet, but we do know when it’s coming out.

“James Bond will return to US cinemas on November 8, 2019,” reads a post on the official Instagram account, “with a traditional earlier release in the UK and the rest of the world.
“Bond 25 will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade and produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
“The film’s cast, director and distributor will be announced at a later date.”

Christopher Nolan recently said that he wouldn’t direct a Bond movie unless he could completely reinvent the wheel – imagine a Nolan-directed Bond 25 released by Warner Bros starring a totally a new leading actor.
We’re not saying that will happen, but imagine.
