Daniel Craig reportedly signs on for Bond 25
If reports are to be believed, the saga over the next James Bond is at an end, with The Mirror reporting that producer Barbara Broccoli has convinced Daniel Craig to sign on for a fifth outing as 007 in Bond 25.
Craig had originally cast doubt over his future as the super spy when he suggested he’d rather “slash my wrists” than return for another movie, prompting rampant speculation as to who could succeed him in the role. However, his stance subsequently softened, and while it’s been reported on several occasions that he turned down astronomical sums of money to return, it has been said that the star always remained the number one choice of the producers to continue in the role.
The Mirror’s report also goes on to claim that Broccoli is “determined” to have Adele return to record the theme tune for Bond 25, following her Brit, Grammy and Golden Globe award-winning theme for Skyfall.
