Craig confirmed to Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that he would play 007 for the final time in the upcoming 2019 film.
The English actor famously said, ahead of the release of Spectre back in 2015, that he would sooner “slit his wrists” than play Bond again. However, he may now live to regret those words, after he confirmed to Stephen Colbert on US chat show ‘The Late Show’ on Tuesday night (August 15th) that he would be reprising the role one last time when the 25th movie is released in two years’ time.
“I have been quite cagey about it,” Craig admitted to Colbert. “I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”

Release date confirmed, but details are still thin.
An official release date has finally been confirmed for the next James Bond film, which has the working title of 'Bond 25'. Cast announcements are yet to be made, with Daniel Craig's return as the titular super-spy yet to be confirmed despite rumours that he is definitely involved.

'Bond 25' is coming in 2019 and while a director is not yet attached to the project, the screenplay is being written by the BAFTA winning Neal Purvis and Robert Wade who wrote the previous six movies - most recently 2015's 'Spectre'. Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are producing, with Gregg Wilson credited as associate producer.

Blake Lively has signed up to 'The Rhythm Section', to be directed by 'The Handmaid's Tale's Reed Morano and overseen by the James Bond producers.
Variety reported on Thursday (July 13th) that the former Gossip Girl actress, 29, has signed on to the project titled The Rhythm Section helmed by Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson. Based on the novel by British author Mark Burnell, The Rhythm Section will feature Lively as Stephanie Patrick, who becomes an assassin to avenge the deaths of her family in an airplane crash - a flight that she was meant to be on.
Reed Morano, who directed the first three episodes of hit TV series ‘The Handmaid's Tale’, will be behind the camera. Broccoli and Wilson said that it was “exciting” to work with such a “talented” line-up.
Nolan spoke to Playboy and admitted he "deeply loves" the Bond character but only sees himself directing it if the character "needs reinvention".
Film director Christopher Nolan has admitted that he’s been in talks with the producers of the James Bond series in previous years, and suggested that he could possibly be in line to direct the next movie in the franchise.
The 46 year old director, who is gearing up for his latest released Dunkirk and has previously helmed the likes of Interstellar, Inception and the three Batman movies that featured Christian Bale, revealed in an interview that he “deeply loves” the Bond films and the character, and has spoken to the people behind the Bond franchise.
“I've spoken to the producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson over the years,” he told Playboy. “I deeply love the character, and I'm always excited to see what they do with it.”
One fan recalled his two meetings with the late James Bond star.
The death of such an iconic actor as Roger Moore is always a tragedy, but he certainly left the world a lot of happy memories with his portrayal of James Bond. But there is one person in the world who perhaps has the greatest memory of Roger Moore in action.
Roger Moore pictured outside the ITV studios
When London writer Marc Haynes met the 'Live and Let Die' star in 1983 at the age of just 7-years-old, he had no idea how significant a moment it would be. He was with his grandfather in Nice airport when he spotted the actor reading a newspaper at the departure gate.

Charlie Hunnam wants to play the British spy.
Could Charlie Hunnam go from King Arthur to James Bond as his next professional step up? He certainly seems up for the role as the lothario British spy, though he confesses that he hasn't actually been in talks about the part as of yet. But there's still time.
Charlie Hunnam at the 'King Arthur' premiere
Following his titular stint in Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur: Legend of the Sword', Charlie Hunnam is setting his sights on big cinematic franchises. He appeared on 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien' to address rumours that he could be the next 007.

Barbara Broccoli reportedly thinks Hiddleston doesn't have what it takes to play 007.
The seemingly interminable speculation about who is set to become the next James Bond actor have taken another turn, with the revelation that Tom Hiddleston stands little chance of landing the part because, according to a producer, he’s “too smug”.
Bond chief Barbara Broccoli is reportedly not enamoured with the idea of The Night Manager actor Hiddleston, 35, playing 007 in the future, according to a new report by the New York Post’s Page Six.
“Barbara Broccoli doesn’t like Tom Hiddleston, he’s a bit too smug and not tough enough to play James Bond," a source told the publication on Wednesday (April 5th).

The originals are always the best.
While everyone's busy wondering who might takeover Daniel Craig as James Bond (Gillian Anderson is now a serious frontrunner, at least according to her fans), we're taking the chance to contemplate our favourite 007 of all time. Because no-one says 'Shaken, not stirred' quite like Sean Connery.
Sean Connery will always be James Bond to us
The lead actor... Sean Connery is a Scottish actor who became the first ever James Bond with 1962's 'Dr. No'. As well as 'Goldfinger', he also did 'From Russia with Love', 'Thunderball', 'You Only Live Twice', 'Diamonds Are Forever' and 'Never Say Never Again'. Plus, he's an Academy Award winner having landed best actor for 1987's gangster flick 'The Untouchables'.

These guys have as much chance as Danny Dyer of being the next 007.
After a rather lukewarm critical reception in comparison to its predecessor, 'Spectre' has left us feeling that the whole James Bond franchise could do with shaking up a bit. And what better way to do that than getting Danny Dyer on board? (Don't answer that.)
Danny Dyer wants to inject some working class charisma into the role
The 'Eastenders' star is willing after all, revealing to The Sun that he's seriously considering applying for the role when Daniel Craig leaves. 'I'd love to do the Bond. Bring something different to the Bond, you know what I mean?' He said. 'Bit of charisma. A working class Bond.'

The Bond film has beaten Harry Potter to the top sport of highest first week takings.
'Spectre' breaks box office records with over £40 million ($60 million) in takings from its first week - and that's just in the UK! With numbers like that, it's particularly hard to believe Daniel Craig is considering leaving the franchise of his own accord.
'Spectre' is predictably a record breaker
Unsurprisingly, the hotly anticipated new James Bond film has spectacularly surpassed the success of predecessor 'Skyfall' on its opening day, taking in a record-breaking £6.3 million to 'Skyfall''s £6.2 million ($9.6 million). But now it's broken the record for the highest takings at the UK box office in the first week, beating Alfonso Cuarón's 2004 film 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban'.

Sculptor Bradley Simms is pictured working on the wax figure sculpt of Pierce Brosnan, as Madame Tussauds London announces it will bring together all six Bonds for the first time in October. Brosnan played 007 four times appearing first in 1995’s GoldenEye , he is featured as he appeared in the 1997 film TOMORROW NEVER DIES. - Madame Tussauds London today announced it is bringing together wax figures of ALL SIX James Bonds for the very first time this October, with five completely new wax 007s joining the existing figure of Daniel Craig. To coincide with the release of Albert R. Broccoli's EON Productions, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, and Sony Pictures Entertainment's SPECTRE, the line-up of Connery, Lazenby, Moore, Dalton, Brosnan and Craig will appear at the legendary London attraction for a limited time only, before embarking on a tour of Madame Tussauds' worldwide. This unique experience, created in close collaboration with EON Productions, will give fans an opportunity to stand side by side with all six Bonds - in the same place, at the same time. Guests are invited to see how they measure up to each 007, pose with their favourite and take a stand out profile picture. Each of these new wax figures will be featured in a classic 007 dinner suit, designed by Oscar® winning costume designer Lindy Hemming, based on the original costume. The Madame Tussauds team already had access to measurements of Craig, Connery, Moore, Dalton and Brosnan from previous figures featured at the attraction but needed George Lazenby's to complete the picture. The star of On Her Majesty's Secret Service was happy to oblige and gave the artists a sitting in LA in February. "The kind of information we can gather at a sitting is hugely beneficial, even at a different time period to the figure we are creating," commented Stephen Mansfield, one of the Principle Sculptors on the project. "George was extremely entertaining and generous and we gathered an entire catalogue of measurements, photographs and footage. We are using those along with references from the film to create what we hope will be an authentic and lifelike figure." General Manager of Madame Tussauds London, Edward Fuller, is delighted to be hosting the line up on the first leg of their world tour. He commented, "It's very at Madame Tussauds - London, United Kingdom - Friday 24th July 2015
