He’s back! After much theory, Daniel Craig is authoritatively set to return as James Bond in the up ’til now untitled 25th film in the 007 establishment.
Makers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli affirmed the news in an official statement on Friday, May 25. This will be the 50-year-old performing artist’s fifth time playing the MI6 operator after Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Specter (2015).
Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire and Steve Jobs) has marked on to coordinate from a unique screenplay by John Hodge, with whom he beforehand collaborated on the 1996 parody Trainspotting. Generation on Bond 25 is set to start on December 3.
“We are charmed to declare that the astoundingly skilled Danny Boyle will coordinate Daniel Craig in his fifth excursion as James Bond in the 25th portion of the establishment,” Wilson and Broccoli said in an announcement. “We will start shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios [in London] in December with our accomplices at MGM and excited that Universal Pictures will be our worldwide wholesaler.”
As of late, Craig sounded not as much as excited when asked in different meetings whether he needed to proceed with the part, which was already depicted via Sean Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan.
“I’d rather break this glass and cut my wrists,” he read a clock Out magazine in October 2015. “Actually no, not right now. Not in any manner. That is fine. I’m over it right now. We’re finished. All I need to do is proceed onward.”
The British performing artist inevitably changed his tune, however he implied this might be his last time venturing into the celebrated around the world covert agent’s shoes. “I think this is it,” he said on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in August. “I simply need to go out on a high note.”
