(CNN)The plot for the next James Bond film is well underway.
Director Danny Boyle revealed Wednesday night that he is working on a screenplay for Bond franchise. It's unclear if he'll also direct the film.
"We are working on a script right now," Boyle told Metro US. "I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in six or seven weeks. Then 'Bond' would be right at the end of the year. But we are working on them both right now."
Boyle is best known for his films "Slumdog Millionaire," "127 Hours" and "Trainspotting."
Boyle said his longtime collaborator, John Hodge, who wrote the screenplay for "Trainspotting," is working with him on the Bond script..
Daniel Craig confirmed in August that he'll resume the title role in the upcoming installment, marking the fifth film in which Craig has played Bond. He made his debut in 2006's "Casino Royale."
CNN has reached out to Boyle's representatives for comment, as well as producers for the film.
