Daniel Craig Will Return As James Bond For Next Film

Daniel Craig Will Return As James Bond For Next Film

Daniel Craig will return to play James Bond in the next movie due to be released in October next year.

The 50-year-old actor will be stepping back into the role for the fifth time, which is an awful of lot martinis.

Universal Pictures has confirmed the actor will be back and that the movie will be directed by Danny Boyle.

Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli from EON Productions, told Deadline: "We are delighted to announce that the exceptionally talented Danny Boyle will be directing Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as James Bond in the 25th instalment of the franchise.

"We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our international distributor."

The film is set to hit screens in the UK on 25 October 2019 and in the US on 8 November.

For months pretty much every British male actor - and a few female, to be fair - has been tipped to play the role, from Idris Elba to Tom Hardy.

Most of the speculation appears to stem from the fact that Craig seemed quite adamant he wouldn't be returning as Bond. And when I say 'quite adamant', I mean, he told the Guardian he would 'rather slash [his] wrists', which is pretty strong.

When asked about the prospect of appearing in another one of the iconic titles, he said: "Now? I'd rather...slash my wrists.

"No, not at the moment. Not at all. That's fine. I'm over it at the moment. We're done. All I want to do is move on."


However, he did go on to say that this was how he felt for 'at least a year or two'.

He went on to tell the paper: "I don't know what the next step is. I've no idea. Not because I'm trying to be cagey. Who the fuck knows? At the moment, we've done it. I'm not in discussion with anybody about anything. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money."

Well, enjoy the cash, Daniel.
