Danny Boyle has dropped out of directing the next Bond film, blaming "creative differences".
The Trainspotting director was to take the helm for the 25th outing in the franchise, with production due to begin at Pinewood Studios in early December.
But a statement, posted on the official James Bond Twitter account, revealed on Tuesday that he had quit.
Oscar-winning director Boyle was set to reunite with the actor for the film, the pair having worked together on a short film - featuring 007 and the Queen - for the 2012 London Olympics.
While it was to be Boyle's first Bond, Craig has previously said it will be his final appearance as 007. The most recent Bond film, Spectre, came out in 2015.
