One of the most iconomic franchises in moviedom will have an Asian American director for the first time in its 50 year history.
Cary Joji Fukanaga, 41, director of the first season of True Detective and the Netflix movie Beasts of No Nation will helm the 25th movie of 007, only the second time a person of color has headed a Bond project.
Fukunaga is slated to begin filming the project — reportedly the final film starring Daniel Craig as the British special agent — next March, targeting a February 2020 release date for the yet-unnamed project..
Fukunaga, who is of Japanese descent, replaces Danny Boyle. The British director quit the film in August due to creative differences.
