Universal said today that its untitled Danny Boyle Working Title comedy, written by Richard Curtis, is coming out Sep. 13, 2019. The release date is interesting as it is two months before MGM’s next James Bond movie which is dated for Nov. 8.
As the world knows, Boyle has been working toward helming that next Bond (MGM and Ion haven’t officially confirmed the news, but Boyle says he’s overseeing a script).
However, here’s how this will go down: Boyle will be finished with the Curtis comedy by late fall, and if Bond happens, it will go next year.
Curtis is behind such hit romantic comedies as Love Actually and Notting Hill. Lily James, Himesh Patel (BBC’s EastEnders, Damned) and Kate McKinnon star in the new one, with Ed Sheeran also set to join. The comedy is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner alongside Matt Wilkinson and Bernie Bellew.
Curtis and Boyle will also produce, while Nick Angel and Lee Brazier serve as executive producers.
