Daniel Craig to play 007 one more time

Daniel Craig to play 007 one more time

James Bond will return to the big screen for a fresh instalment in 2019, creators have said.

Bond 25 won't have an "empty" release date, having to fight out an untitled Disney fairy tale on November 8, but with Sam Mendes in the director's chair (the same man that directed Skyfall, movie that grossed $880.7 million globally) and hopefully Daniel Craig playing the British spy, we can surely say that it won't be much of a problem.

Scripted by long-standing Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the new movie will come to United Kingdom cinemas before making its U.S. debut in November.

Purvis and Wade started in 1999's The World Is Not Enough and penned the last six Bond films. As at the time of writing this article, the project is still without a director, distributor, and the supporting cast. However, we've now just learned that Craig is indeed coming back as James Bond in 2019.

In 2012, it was reported that Craig was the highest-paid Bond actor of all time after netting £31m for another two outings, which included the most recent, Spectre.

What Do Analysts Think Of Carr's Group (LON:CARR) This Week?
Three equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and ten have given a buy rating to the company's stock. Blackrock Fund Advsrs has 0.03% invested in Lithia Motors Inc (NYSE:LAD). 78,328 were accumulated by Bbt Capital Mngmt Ltd Llc.

He's of course well within his rights to have a change of heart, and indeed he has since said his original comments were made when he was overtired (and straight off the back of months of shooting on Spectre), but I wonder why MGM didn't take his initial retirement from the role as a chance to cement a replacement.

The movie James Bond 25 though, is set to be Daniel Craigs last appearance in the Bond series as 007.

Daniel Craig, who has been playing the famous spy since the 2006 film Casino Royale, has not yet been announced as the British Secret Service agent. If he does he will become the second oldest actor to perform the role, turning 51 by the time the movie is released.

MGM and Eon are also looking for a studio to handle the marketing and the distribution of the film, with Warner Bros, Fox, Sony and Universal fighting to get the job.

Still want to "slash your wrists", Daniel Craig?
