Danny Boyle has dropped from directing the next Bond film due to "creative differences". The Trainspotting director was to take the helm for the 25th outing in the franchise, with production due to begin in early December. But a statement, posted on the official James Bond Twitter account, revealed on Tuesday that he had quit. Susie Ferguson speaks to the BBC's entertainment correspondent Colin Paterson. He says the announcement has taken everyone by surprise.
