OSCAR-winner Danny Boyle will no longer direct the 25th James Bond instalment. 

The Radcliffe-born director revealed he was working on the “Bond 25” script in March. 

This evening the official James Bond Twitter account Tweeted: “Michael G. Wilson, Barbara Broccoli and Daniel Craig today announced that due to creative differences Danny Boyle has decided to no longer direct Bond 25.”

Bond 25 is still in pre-production stages with 50-year-old Daniel Craig set to reprise his role for the fifth time.

Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw are also rumoured to be reprising their roles as Miss Moneypenny and Q. 

Boyle went to Thornleigh Salesian College, Bolton and went on to direct the generation defining hit Trainspotting and won his only Oscar for 2009’s Slumdog Millionaire. 

He cemented his place in British history by curating the knockout London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, which featured odes to the Industrial North and the National Health Service. 

There was no update from the producers about who would replace Boyle as the milestone film's director.
