British actor Daniel Craig has
confirmed he will reprise the role of James Bond one last time,
ending months of speculation.
Craig made the revelation during an appearance on the U.S.
TV programme “The Late Show” on Tuesday. Asked by host Stephen
Colbert whether he would return as James Bond, Craig responded:
“Yes”, to cheers from the audience.
Craig has appeared four times as the spy with a taste for
martini: in “Casino Royale”, “Quantum of Solace”, “Skyfall” and
Eon Productions, the company that runs the movie franchise,
said on its website that the 25th Bond movie would be released
in US cinemas on November 8, 2019, with a traditional early
release in Britain and the rest of the world.
Asked by Colbert whether he would appear in any further Bond
movies after that one, Craig said no.
“I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note
and I can’t wait,” he said.
