The latest episode in the James Bond franchise has already become a stumbling block with the departure of Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle.
And it is claimed that James Bond 25 will be postponed after 007 actor Daniel Craig has signed up for a new film role, which starts recording in November.
According to The Sun, the talented actor, 50, plays the lead role in the murder mystery Knives Out, where filming starts a month before the production starts on the espionage thriller.

Knives Out is written and directed by Star Wars & Rian Johnson, with Craig as the main detective in the film, inspired by Agatha Christie novels about murder mystery.
Layer Cake-star Daniel would have been registered in the last two weeks, so the espionage thriller in November 2019 at the date of publication would be in danger.
A source told the website: "Daniel is clearly ahead of Bond, and taking this action makes it clear that nobody expects things to get back on the right track soon.
& # 39; It should have started shooting, but that is now impossible. & # 39;

It was claimed that Johnson Daniel offered the role after learning a small window & # 39; in his schedule.
This is Daniel's fifth and final outing as the impetuous agent of the secret service.
MailOnline contacted representatives for Daniel, MGM, Universal and Eon for comments.
The claim comes when director Danny Boyle left the James Bond 25 project sensationally last month because of creative differences & # 39 ;.
It was reported that the specific problem of Boyle with the proposed plot for the latest film was that writers wanted to finish 007 and regenerate it & # 39; for James Bond 26, a la Doctor Who, since Daniel finally says goodbye to the franchise.

The Sun reports that according to an insider: "There were discussions about killing Bond dramatically at the end.
It would also stay open for a spin in the next episode – or Bond would not have died or there could be a Doctor Who-like regeneration with a new actor.
& # 39; There were clashes about the budget and there is pandemonium under the crew with people who leave the production left, right and in the middle. & # 39;
The decision to kill Bond – something that has never been done in the film series until now, despite the fact that almost everyone is wrong – is said to be the idea of long-time producer Barbara Broccoli, who is a pure golden spectacular finale & # 39; want. But Boyle, 61, would be dead against the idea.
Boyle worked with screenwriter John Hodge on the script for the film.

The North American release date for the upcoming James Bond movie – provisionally scheduled for November 8, 2019 – remains in the air after Boyle's exodus from the creative differences project earlier this week.
Sources against The Hollywood Reporter The original release date of the film is not reached and can be reduced to the following year.
The film is distributed in the United States by MGM and abroad by Universal; in the UK, the release date is scheduled for October 25, 2019, the publication reported.
In a separate report, insiders indicated Tuesday that the film is on track to appear in the cinema on November 8, with opposite information being listed as "wishful thinking by competing distributors."
