Daniel Craig To Continue As James Bond For A While Yet | Film News
In a recent interview with British newspaper the Daily Mail, Daniel Craig has revealed he will return for Bond 25. Although the news comes as no surprise – Craig’s contract is for five pictures, Spectre being his fourth – the actor has recently expressed doubts as to his ability to continue with the physically demanding role. The news comes after Sam Mendes announced he will not be returning to the quintessential spy series; Spectre which is released later this month will be the American director’s second Bond outing.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Craig talked about the good and the bad that comes with playing England’s most senior spy: “But it’s an honour to play him. I get such a big kick out of doing it. I had an opportunity with Casino Royale to wipe the slate clean. I damaged my knee a third of the way through shooting and we shut down for two weeks while I went away for surgery“.
The current James Bond closed with with the revelation he would continue in the role: “It’s getting harder. But such is life. I’ll keep going as long as I’m physically able“. Spectre opens on October 26 and sees Bond face off against a shady organisation with help from an old adversary. Christoph Waltz, Monica Belluci, Dave Bautista, Léa Seydoux and Stephanie Sigman star, with Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Rory Kinnear and Ben Wishaw returning.
