Daniel Craig Rumored to Be Coming Back For More JAMES BOND
After the last James Bond film, Skyfall, was released I didn't think we'd see Daniel Craig reprise the role again. He seemed to hate playing the role and at one point while making the press rounds for the movie he said he'd rather slit his wrist than make another Jame Bond movie! After that, there was a lot of news coming out that he was officially done with Bond.
Well, according to the Mirror, an inside source told them, "consensus in the Bond offices is that Mr. Craig is 007 again." Apparently, producer Barbara Broccoli has secured Daniel Craig to come back to reprise the role for at least one more film. They hope to start shooting Bond 25 next year for a 2019 release date.
It was rumored late last year that Craig was being offered $150 million to come back. If that is true, I suppose I'd also consider coming back to do something I hate! That's a lot of freakin' money!
I was actually kind of hoping that we would get a new actor to play Bond. I'll be honest, I don't want to see Craig come back. He made a decent 007, but I think it's time for him to move on. This news is just a rumor at the moment, there's no confirmation that he will be reprising his role, so there's still a chance that we could see another actor take on the role.
The report also says that Broccoli is trying to get Adele to return to record a new theme song for Bond 25, which would be great! The previous Bond Theme she did was so good that it won a Brit Award, a Grammy, a Golden Globe, and an Oscar.
What do you all think about the possibility of Craig coming back for another 007 film? Are you happy to hear he could come back, or would you rather to see a new actor take on the role?
