We recollect the words of Daniel Craig that he would never be seen in the role of 007 for sure. He must have realized the phrase ‘never say never’ now. Yes, Daniel Craig is returning back to play James Bond.
With doubts arising in everyone’s mind, Daniel decided to put an end to whether he will act or not for the fifth time as James Bond. He spoke on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on US TV on Tuesday. He finally revealed that he will return as 007 in the next part.
He broke the ice saying, “I have been quite cagey about it. I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.” When asked by Colbert if he has some good news for his fans, Craig replied: “Yes”. He even added that he needs a break but he always wanted to play 007.
This was already reported in July and hence it is not a surprising news. However, as Craig himself accepted it will enthusiasm, it’s a confirmed and happy news for 007 fans.
The first Bond film to cross $1 Billion at the box office was Skyfall. After its release in 2012, Spectre was released in 2015. Spectre was described as “terrifically exciting, spectacular, almost operatically delirious 007 adventure” by the Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw. The production cost of that movie was $245 making it the most expensive Bond film. Craig accepts that acting in Bond movies has changed his working life in an incredible way.
In Craig’s words, “There are more opportunities. I could do many, many things. But it takes an awful amount of time. If anything, the restriction is that it is incredibly time-consuming. That’s the restriction.”
The 25th series of James Bond is scheduled for release in the month of November 2019 and it’s confirmed that Daniel Craig is in it.
