Per The Hollywood Reporter:

Bond producers Eon made the announcement Thursday, adding that production will start in March for a worldwide release date of Feb. 14, 2020, shifting Bond from its traditional winter slot (and some four months back from its previous launch date of Oct. 25, 2019). Fukunaga’s appointment marks the first time an American director has helmed a 007 film in the 55-year history of Eon’s Bond titles (1983’s Never Say Never Again was helmed by the late Irvin Kershner, but this is the only James Bond outing not produced by Eon).

“We are delighted to be working with Cary. His versatility and innovation make him an excellent choice for our next James Bond adventure,” said producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli in a tweet.

28 Day Later director Danny Boyle has originally been tapped to direct the upcoming film but dropped out due to creative differences.

As for who might step in for the role of James Bond after this film, rumors are already swirling that former Superman actor, Henry Cavill could be the next 007.
