Daniel Craig has confirmed that he will be reprising his role as James Bond.
When asked whether he will play the secret agent again during his appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”, the 49-year-old star simply answered, “Yes.”
He then added, “We’ve been discussing it, we’ve just been trying to figure things out. I always wanted to, I needed a break.”
Besides that, the British actor also said that the series’ 25th instalment, which is due out in November 2019, will be his last time playing the iconic 007 agent. “I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note, and I can’t wait,” he told Colbert.
Craig has played the James Bond in 4 films – “Casino Royale” (2006), “Quantum Of Solace” (2008), “Skyfall” (2012), and “Spectre” (2015). He famously commented that he would rather slash his wrists than perform the role of James Bond for a 5th time.
“If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money,” he was quoted saying.
Previously, it was rumoured that “James Bond” producers were finding a new actor to replace Daniel Craig. The list of British A-listers include “The Dark Tower” star Idris Elba, “Thor” actor Tom Hiddleston, as well as “Mad Max: Fury Road” actor Tom Hardy.
