There was a lot of talk about whether or not Daniel Craig would be back to play the iconic spy for another movie.
The good news is that Craig has been finally confirmed as the new James Bond for the next installment in the British film series.
Daniel Craig will star in the 20-part series Purity, which will reportedly film fairly soon. This led many to presume that this meant the end for Craig as James Bond, as MGM hoped to get a new film into theaters by next year.
But a source revealed:
“They [MGM] know he wants to do Purity and had hoped to get the new film in cinemas next year, but they have vowed to push it back a year to help make his schedule easier.”
“Bond scriptwriters feel it could be the perfect follow-up to Spectre. They are hoping to film in Croatia next year,” a source revealed.
Reportedly, the location of the film is expected to shoot in Japan and the south of France.
Furthermore, the producer Barbara Broccoli is determined to bring back Adele to record another Bond theme following her Oscar-winning lead track for Skyfall.
Reportedly, Daniel Craig hasn’t told anyone whether or not he’ll return to play James Bond for a fifth time, but it certainly sounds like MGM has their fingers crossed that he comes back for one more ride.
James Bond is currently scheduled to be released into cinemas in November 2019.
