Daniel Craig is “addressing the noise” about his highly anticipated possible return to the role of James Bond. “No decision has been made at the moment,” he said in a new interview with a Boston morning radio show called Morning Magic 106.7.
“There’s a lot of noise out there and nothing official has been confirmed and I’m not, like, holding out for more money or doing anything like that,” he explained.
While promoting his next film “Logan Lucky,” Craig went on to add in the interview, “It’s just all very personal decisions to be made at the moment…I know they’re desperate to get going and I would in theory love to do it, but there is no decision, uh, just yet.”
Franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson of EON Productions, announced that the 25th James Bond film will hit the U.S. on November 8, 2019. It will rollout in Europe one week prior, keeping with tradition.
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade will return to write the script, as they have for each Craig-led Bond — titles including “Skyfall,” “Spectre,” “Quantum of Solace” and “Casino Royale”
A domestic distributor for the film is also up in the air. In April, TheWrap reported that four major studios are locked in a bidding war for the one-off rights.
Warner Bros., Universal, 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures were all vying for the project.
