Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson were "excited by the concept" from Danny Boyle

The source continued: “But the most important cheerleader in the meeting was Daniel, and he was pushing for Danny to direct.

“He loves the fact that it’s something completely different. He has not signed up for more of the same old Bond.

“The seed of Danny and John’s Bond was planted when Danny directed that incredible short film — featuring Daniel Craig, the Queen and her corgis — for the opening of the 2012 London Olympics.

“That’s where the bond, for want of a better word, was formed.

“I’d be shot if I told you the story idea they’ve come up with, but it’s pure movie gold.”
