Daniel Craig Confirms He Will Return as James Bond

Daniel Craig has confirmed he will reprise the role of James Bond in the next movie despite previously saying he’d rather “slash [his] wrists” than play the British spy again. It’s also been confirmed that Oscar-winning Danny Boyle will direct the 25th Bond movie, set to be released in the fall of 2019. EON Productions’ Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli told Deadline: “We are delighted to announce that the exceptionally talented Danny Boyle will be directing Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as James Bond in the 25th installment of the franchise. We will begin shooting Bond 25 at Pinewood Studios in December with our partners at MGM and thrilled that Universal will be our international distributor.” Craig said in 2015: “If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.”
