Remember back in October of 2015 when Daniel Craig told Time Out London that he’d rather kill himself than make another James Bond film?
The exact quote was, “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
Of course, this was right after filming Spectre, so he probably really did feel like this at the time. It’s like when you walk out of the office on Friday and quietly say to yourself, “I can’t do this anymore,” but then you return on Monday because you like your house and car too much.
Obviously it’s not exactly the same, ’cause Craig doesn’t need to do these movies to survive. He’s set for life. At 49-years-old, he can go live on a beach and never have to work again.
But he’s not ready to throw in the towel just yet. According to a report from The New York Times, Craig is planning on returning to the James Bond franchise for at least one more movie.
On Monday, it was announced that the next installment would hit theaters Nov. 8, 2019. The announcement did not say who would be directing or starring, and so far, reps for Craig have not responded to the report from The New York Times.
So nothing is official yet, but it’s looking like Craig will return. Maybe he wants a proper send-off. We’ll keep you posted as more information is released.
