James Bond's next mission is a little over two years away, meaning producers are currently on the hunt for a man or woman to direct Daniel Craig's fifth and final outing as the iconic British secret agent. Shortly after EON Productions officially announced Bond 25, a shortlist of potential directors emerged online. According to Deadline, producers are considering Yann Demange, David Mackenzie and Denis Villeneuve for the director's chair.
Craig offered US talk show host Stephen Colbert the scoop, and when asked bluntly whether he would be returning for the role, he answered simply: “Yes.”

Despite no official confirmation, Christoph Waltz and Dave Bautista are both expected to return as villains while Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny), Ben Whishaw (Q) and Rory Kinnear are all set to return.
While Daniel Craig is still only rumoured to be back for Bond 25, Eon Productions has three directors in the mix to take the reigns from Sam Mendes.
