Daniel Craig Rumored to Return for ‘Bond 25’ Set for 2019 Release Date

James Bond 25 Rumor

Hot on the heels of the announcement that Eon Productions had set a November 8th 2019 release date for James Bond 25, comes an update that Daniel Craig’s return is a “done deal.”

Although not official, it feels right. Craig is an okay actor. The guy deserves to make a last one and become the third longest running Bond — Roger Moore and Sean Connery played Bond in a total of seven films (if you count Never Say Never Again for Connery). The still-untitled Bond 25 will be his fifth film in the 007 franchise. He first played the suave spy in 2006’s Casino Royale and later appeared in Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015).

The 24th James Bond film, Spectre, earned a superb $880 million worldwide, but critically was a step down from the success of the previous entry Skyfall. Director Sam Mendes won’t be returning for another installment. And release date before a director, well that doesn’t sound promising.

It’s also the return of the writers that worries me — longtime Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are back to write the next chapter in the adventure. They’re like an Eon logo and opening credits at this point.
