Daniel Craig Signs on for Bond 25
"Bond 25" is going to happen, and despite his comments saying he would "rather slash [his] wrists" than return to the franchise, Daniel Craig will indeed be reprising the role of James Bond. This would be the last film that Craig has on his five movie contract.
Barabra Broccoli will be producing the film and is said to have her sights set on Christopher Nolan to direct. Nolan told Playboy, "I've spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson over the years. I deeply love the character, and I'm always excited to see what they do with it. Maybe one day that would work out. You'd have to be needed, if you know what I mean. It has to need reinvention; it has to need you. And they're getting along very well."
Broccoli is also reportedly trying to get Adele to come back for the soundtrack. Adele's "Skyfall" won the franchise its first Oscar.
"Skyfall" earned over $1.1 billion at the box office.
