It was reported that Daniel Craig will reprise his role as James Bond for the series’ 25th instalment.
Apparently, the 49-year-old English actor is reportedly reaching a deal with the franchise’s longtime producer Barbara Broccoli.
Craig has played the iconic spy in 4 films since 2006. After the release of “Spectre” in 2015, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” actor stated that he would “rather slash my wrists” than perform the role of Agent 007 for a 5th time.
According to The Mirror via Screen Rant, the movie’s producers have expressed interest in getting singer Adele on board as well. An insider said, “Craig and Adele together are the winning team, the ultimate choice, the money spinners. It’s taken time but Daniel has come round and the strong con–sensus [sic] in the Bond offices is that Mr Craig is 007 again. As for Adele, she’s more of an unknown quantity but loved being part of Bond, so the signs are positive.”
Previously, it was rumoured that “James Bond” producers were finding a new actor to replace for Daniel Craig. The list of British A-listers include “The Dark Tower” star Idris Elba as well as “Mad Max: Fury Road” actor Tom Hardy.
Broccoli or Craig’s representatives have yet to officially comment on the news. So stay tuned more updates!
