Barbara Broccoli confirms that the new James Bond movie will not be called Shatterhand

James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has denied that the new movie will be titled Shatterhand. 

Last month, a listing for the film appeared in industry publication Production Weekly, which listed the film with the working title. 

However, the film's official Instagram posted an autograph for a fan, signed by Broccoli, which makes it clear that the next instalment of 007 will not have that title:

The movie has already been in news once in recent weeks after it was announced the release date been delayed.

It had been due to hit cinemas on February 14th in 2020, a delay from its original release date of November 8th in 2019, but has now slipped again. 

The film will now hit cinemas on April 8th in 2020. 

As well as this, Scott Z. Burns, writer on Contagion and The Bourne Ultimatum, has been brought in re-work the script.  

Burns' arrival is the latest change for the film, which has already seen director Danny Boyle leave and be replaced by True Detective creator Cary Fukunaga. 

Boyle had wanted to work with screenwriter John Hodge on the project, but his script was rejected by producers.

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the screenwriters on Skyfall and Spectre, were then brought back in, but their new effort does not seem to have satisfied producers and Fukunaga. 

Production on the movie, which is widely anticipated to be Daniel Craig's last in the role, is still expected to begin in the first half of this year.
