Namely, he confirmed that yes, he’ll be returning for the studio-less, director-less, writer-less in development “Bond 25”, which already has a release date of November 8th, 2019. Which of course looks like they at least have some of that stuff nailed down, or else production turn around is going to be a real pain in the ass.
Earlier today even, The Hollywood Reporter ran this story about Craig saying he “wasn’t holding out for more money or anything” before confirming his return to the role, which of course prompted further chatter on the subject.
This will be the actor’s 5th time as Bond, previously appearing in Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre.
