Sound the trumpets: Daniel Craig will play James Bond in at least another film, which will be released in November 2019.
Eon Productions, the London-based business that oversees all things 007, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which holds rights to the franchise, stated Monday that the next installation would get here in theaters in North America on Nov. 8, 2019. That will put moviedom’s most well-known spy in direct competitors with a live-action fairy tale from Walt Disney Studios. (Disney claimed the date last year but has not yet revealed the particular film.)
Eon and MGM also said that the script would be composed by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have teamed up on the screenplays for the last 6 Bond installations, starting with “The World Is Insufficient” in 1999. The next Bond motion picture– the 25th in the series, if you consist of “Never ever State Never ever Again” from 1983, which was made by an outdoors production company– will be produced by Eon’s Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli.
The business said in a statement that information about a circulation partner, global release dates and the film’s cast and director would be announced “at a later date.” But Craig’s return is a done deal, inning accordance with two people informed on the matter, who spoke on the condition of privacy to prevent conflicts with Eon and MGM.
After an intense aim for the last Bond movie, “Spectre,” Craig revealed a strong desire to move on from the function, which he took control of in 2006 with “Gambling establishment Royale.” “I ‘d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” he told a British magazine in October. He later on stated that he had been overtired during that interview and that he would consider returning.
