Cary Joji Fukunaga, the director behind the newest installment of the much beloved James Bond franchise has stated that the rumors surrounding him are untrue. These rumors are that his gaming habits have led to a lull in the production of the movie. His love for the game Red Dead Redemption 2 has allegedly stopped Fukunaga from doing his job correctly. It is rumored that crew members have been forced to wait for obscene amounts of time due to Fukunaga’s lateness. Some have then attributed said tardiness to an addiction to the open world cowboy game.
Fukunaga has taken to Instagram to fervently deny these allegations made against him. He went on to say that everyone should have something to do every hour of production. Fukunaga has admitted to loving Red Dead Redemption 2 but then added that his play time has actually been stunted significantly due to his dedication to the film.
If these allegations are true then Fukunaga would not be the first celebrity to suffer from this kind of addiction. In the 1990s Liverpool’s goalkeeper David James would regularly play Tekken 2 and Tomb Raider for hours on end. Gaming addictions affecting athletes is more common than some might think.
Partick Laine, the all-star winger for the Winnipeg Jets has also faced similar criticism. Journalists, as well as people within the Jets organization, have shown concern over his excessive Fortnite use. Laine suffered a career low in points and goal this year and many contributed his poor on-ice performance to his love affair with Fortnite.
Bond 25 has already been the center of much controversy. The previous director Danny Boyle left the project completely due to creative differences. Daniel Craig, the actor who plays James Bond has also suffered an on-set injury.
