HOLLYWOOD- Oscar winning filmmaker Danny Boyle has opened up about dropping out of Bond 25 and what was his take away from the entire experience.

Boyle pulled out of Bond 25 in August citing creative differences with the producers.

Now in an interview with Metro, Boyle said he realized from the experience that he is not cut out for franchise cinema and will never take on a big studio franchise again.

“I learned my lesson that I am not cut out (for franchises) otherwise you’re digging in the same hole. I am better not quite in the mainstream franchise movies is the honest answer. I learned quite a lot about myself with Bond. I work in partnership with writers and I am not prepared to break it up,” Boyle said.

After Boyle's exit, producers roped in True Detective and Maniac director Cary Joji Fukunaga.
