James Bond 25: Daniel Craig's Return Reportedly a 'Done Deal'

Posted July 26, 2017

The latest reports have suggested that Craig, as well as Skyfall singer Adele, will return for the 25th movie and that Sherlock director Paul McGuigan is being considered to helm the film.

Speculation regarding Daniel Craig's future as the worlds greatest super spy James Bond has been a hot topic of conversation since the release of Spectre previous year.

It's important to note that Craig's involvement has yet to be confirmed.

Film producers of EON Productions are yet to officially confirm whether Craig will return to his role as Bond or not, but a release date for the 25th installment of the saga has been revealed.

Alex Osborn is a freelance writer for IGN. There's no word just yet about whether Craig will return for the new film, who will direct it or what the plot will look like.

James Bond will return to U.S. cinemas on November 8, 2019 with a traditional earlier release in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world. Dunkirk's Christopher Nolan recently let slip that he'd been in talks with Bond producers following the departure of Spectre director Sam Mendes, saying: "I've spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson over the years".

The 49-year-old actor will once again play Ian Fleming's iconic secret service agent, The New York Times reported, in Bond's upcoming big screen outing - set to hit theaters November 8, 2019.

If Daniel Craig does return as Bond, it will be the fifth time he has played the role. This gives Bond 25 a sense of continuity and an opportunity to say a proper goodbye to one of the most well-received 007s in franchise history.

An insider told The Mirror: "It's taken time but Daniel has come round and the strong consensus in the Bond offices is that Mr Craig is 007 again". Are you looking forward to more Craig-Bond?

The James Bond franchise is a massive one spanning 26 different movies over six decades.
