Daniel Craig Confirms He Will Reprise His 007 For Next James Bond Film

Since Spectre hit theaters in 2015 and Daniel Craig expressed relief that he was no longer bound to the James Bond franchise, speculation has mounted around who might be the next 007. As stars, both male and female, have lined up to volunteer for the role, Craig’s own interest seems to have been renewed. Now, the Spectre and Skyfall star has confirmed what many fans have long suspected.
Daniel Craig Would Never Really Say Goodbye To Bond
Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Mr. Craig revealed that he has signed on to return as the super secret spy for what is tentatively being called Bond 25. Previously, unnamed sources and Spectre stars have all alluded to Daniel’s return for the next sequel in the franchise, but, until now, that has never been officially confirmed. Fans have been reluctant to cling to the rumors, but now that Craig has confirmed his return, interest in Bond 25 will likely reach a fevered pitch.
During his interview, Colbert bluntly asked Daniel if he would be returning to play James Bond for the 25th film and the actor confirmed that he was signed on to come back in the iconic role. Craig says he’s known for several months that he would be playing the 007 agent again.
Although he once said he would rather kill himself than star in another James Bond film, Daniel now suggests that was just a knee-jerk reaction. In fact, the actor suggests he never doubted that he would reprise James Bond in the new film.
“We’ve been discussing it, we’ve just been trying to figure things out,” Mr. Craig said. “I always wanted to, I needed a break.”
Sadly, this will be his last outing as James Bond. Craig added that Bond 25 is his chance to “go out on a high note” in the role that he has revitalized for a new generation.
Until his Late Show appearance, Daniel had been denying any rumor associated with his return to the role. Even this week, Craig has said that there was no reason to expect him to return. As he did a double take and admitted that he was returning, the actor offered an apology for the deceptions. Expressing his regret for the ruse, Craig said that he wanted to dish out the truth, but he wasn’t able until now.
Though Bond 25 doesn’t have an official title yet, it is expected to debut in theaters on November 8, 2019.
