Shaken, not replaced: Craig reportedly back as 007 in 2019

Shaken, not replaced: Craig reportedly back as 007 in 2019

"James Bond 25" will hit the theaters on November 8, 2019, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Eon Productions have confirmed.

All signs are now pointing towards Daniel Craig reprising the secret agent role for the fifth time, despite his less-than-enthusiastic comments about playing James Bond during the promo trail for his most recent outing, "Spectre".

It would be a bit naive to rule out the man who has been playing the role since 2006, first appearing as Bond in Casino Royale. The new movie will be the 25th in the Bond franchise. The book series continued after Fleming's death in 1964.

It seems that Daniel Craig might return as James Bond, though it has yet to be officially confirmed.

James Bond will return to screens in November 2019 for the 25th official film of the franchise, however the identify of who will play 007 has not been confirmed.

EON Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer said in a statement that the casting will be announced on a later date. The same goes for global release dates.

Several men are now rumored to be in consideration for the role of James Bond, with current speculation pointing heavily toward Aidan Turner, though Idris Elba has also been heavily rumored as a solid option.

If Daniel Craig does return as Bond, it will be the fifth time he has played the role.

Producer Barbara Broccoli is also reportedly "determined" to bring back Adele to record a theme tune for the new film, after singing the lead track on Skyfall. It followed the same line as Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, and the new DC universe storylines, which instead of filled with costume goofiness, takes a much darker look at the world of super heroes.

After a grueling shoot and sublime reviews for his last turn as the worldwide spy, Spectre, Craig seemed done with the role.
