Just because everyone wants Daniel Craig to return as Ian Fleming's James Bond in 'Bond 25', it doesn't make it a done deal.
With Sam Mendes thought to be ruled out of the 25th Bond movie, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson will be scouting for their next helmsman or woman.

According to Page Six, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has all but persuaded him to play 007 for the historic 25th movie in the series. Plus, it’s said that she’s really not keen on having the likes of Tom Hiddleston – said to have been in the frame to replace Craig – picking up the Walther PPK, as he’s ‘too smug’ and ‘not tough enough’. A ‘Hollywood source’ told them: “Daniel was very pleased with how ‘Othello’ went and the great reviews.
The incumbent James Bond 007 has puppies galore. Yes, Daniel Craig has teamed up with Omaze, a California-based company which “offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences that benefit charitable causes,” for an initiative to benefit the United Nations Mine Action Service.
It might not have its actual Bond in place yet, but according to reports it’s got an early location in the pipeline. Bond news site MI6 HQ reckons that production company Eon is in ‘advanced negotiations’ with the city of Dubrovnik for Bond 25. MI6 HQ cites confirmation from the city’s mayor, Andro Vlahušić, who dropped the tidbit while discussing details of ‘Robin Hood: Origins’, which is also shooting in the medieval city. “James Bond is in an advanced stage of negotiations,” Vlahušić told local press. ...
As of today, stats compiled by the Press Association find that he’s overtaken Pierce Brosnan, having been in the job for over 11 years – 4,147 days to be exact, since he was announced as the new Bond in October, 2005. Brosnan also made four movies, ‘GoldenEye’, ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’, ‘The World Is Not Enough’ and ‘Die Another Day’, over 4,146 days in the tux.

As ‘His Dark Materials’ author Philip Pullman announces a new trilogy set in the world of Lyra Belaqua, The Magisterium and souls that look like cuddly animals, we take a look back at the failed 2007 attempt to bring the fantasy saga to the big screen. What’s a studio to do when it has just stormed the global box office to the tune of nearly $3bn by adapting one of the most famous fantasy sagas of all time, JRR Tolkien’s sprawling ‘The Lord of the Rings’, and there is no obvious followup?
With ‘Casino Royale’ about to celebrate its 10th anniversary, we look back the crazy anti-Craig fan reaction that greeted the announcement he would take over from Pierce Brosnan as 007. The trolling began the moment Daniel Craig arrived by speedboat at the London press conference unveiling him as the new James Bond – wearing a life jacket. Immediately, so-called 007 fans started whinging that James would never be such a wuss, clearly confused that the ‘Layer Cake’ star was a 37-year-old actor from Chester and not a real secret agent.
Just in case anyone was holding out hope that Eddie Redmayne might be a potential contender for the next Bond, the actor has ruled himself out. Poll: Who should be the next James Bond? Redmayne declared, “I definitely will not be playing James Bond.
It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with Daniel Craig’s future as James Bond. Ever since the release of ‘Spectre’ it’s been widely assumed that Daniel Craig wouldn’t be returning as the world’s most famous spy.
Traditionally, it’s always been Miss Moneypenny’s role to pine for 007 – so it’s only fitting that current Moneypenny actress Naomie Harris express her desperation for the current Bond to stay on. While it’s heavily speculated that Daniel Craig may have quit the role of James Bond, there remains no official confirmation either way, and Harris has made it clear that she hopes he doesn’t stand down yet. Speaking at the London Film Festival (quotes via BBC News), the 40 year-old actress declared, “He’s an extraordinary actor and I think he’s the best modern Bond that we have had and I desperately want him back.
After the huge success of ‘Casino Royale’ it’s little surprise that another James Bond movie was soon put into production. ‘Quantum of Solace’ saw Daniel Craig return as 007… but it sounds as though making the highly-anticipated movie wasn’t plain sailing. Marc Forster was soon hired as ‘Quantum of Solace’ director. “It was tricky because we didn’t have a finished script”, Forster explained to Collider.
It’s widely agreed that ‘Quantum of Solace,’ Daniel Craig’s second outing as James Bond, isn’t a particular series highlight. The 22nd entry in the long-running spy franchise was one among many movies and TV shows to have been hurt by the Writer’s Guild of America strike of 2007, and started production without a fully finished script, with no revisions allowed by WGA rules. Speaking to Collider, the film’s director Marc Forster admits that he wasn’t happy working under those conditions – and contemplated quitting altogether.
It seems the top brass at James Bond HQ are still not ruling out the return of incumbent 007 actor Daniel Craig. In an interview on BBC Radio 4’s Today, Callum McDougall –executive producer on ‘Casino Royale,’ ‘Quantum of Solace,’ ‘Skyfall’ and ‘Spectre’ – was asked whether Craig would be back a fifth time, to which he could only reply, “I wish I knew. “We love Daniel.
The rumours that Daniel Craig has been offered $150 million to make two more movies as James Bond are ‘baloney,’ a new report claims. The report goes on to pick holes in the initial Radar Online report which launched the rumour, noting that “the decision to pay Craig such an astronomical fee would not unilaterally fall to Sony,” but production company Eon and studio MGM, who have been at the helm of the series since it began in the 1960s. This is of particular note as Sony’s deal with MGM to co-distribute the series (which began in 2006 on Craig’s first film ‘Casino Royale’) came to an end with 2015′s ‘Spectre.’ While Sony are reportedly keen to renew this deal they have serious competition from Disney, Warner Bros, Paramount and Universal.
