Daniel Craig 'returning as James Bond' for 2019 movie, reports confirm

Eon Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer — the companies behind the James Bond franchise — announced on Monday (July 24) night their next 007 thriller would reach cinemas November 8, 2019. However, there was no announcement over who would be playing the iconic character.


The New York Times has since confirmed recent reports that Daniel Craig will return, despite having previously said he would rather "slash his wrists" than play the character again.


Two sources told the publication Craig's contract was a done deal; separate sources told The Mirror earlier this year that Craig had "changed his mind" about playing Bond and that franchise producer Barbara Broccoli has "secured" the actor.


It was previously reported that Craig was offered up to £120 million to return as the spy for two more films despite attention surrounding fellow candidates Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, James Norton and Poldark star Aidan Turner.
