DANIEL CRAIG today announced that he would indeed return as Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 in the previously announced 25th instalment of our favourite film series.
He was appearing on 'The Late Show" with Stephen Colbert when he made the announcement the world had been waiting for. It will now put to bed the continuous rumours and media talk. And now see Eon, Craig and fans alike focus on a film that Craig describes that he is hopeful will see him "go out on a high note".
He expressed his enthusiasm "I Couldn't be happier!" and wanting to do the part "I always wanted to", echoing what his comments from last year at the New Yorker festival. The film he said is expected to be his last outing as the Secret agent, The actor will be the second oldest 007 actor to finish in the part (officially) behind the late and Great Sir Roger Moore who was 57 in 'A View to a Kill', Craig will be 51 when the film is released, as well as completing the longest tenure in the role.
As announced late last month, the film is slated for a November 2019 release in the US, and earlier in the UK. We suggest that the 14th of November will see the film released in Australia with Advance Screenings the night before.
At this stage further details regarding title, director, remaining cast and most importantly distributor are yet to be announced, but will be in due course. We did witness a gentleman that looked like frontrunner Director Yann Demange leave EON House on our recent visit to London however.
The news has delighted the majority of the Bond family and film buffs around the world. It has to be said we are very happy with the announcement.
JAMES BOND WILL RETURN
