It was indeed in the air, many people said from sure sources that Daniel Craig would have been one more time the face of James Bond for the 25th movie of the franchise but he never personally confirmed. Something leaked few weeks ago that everything was already set and signed in a rendezvous of the whole crew in a mysterious Caribbean island, some other sources claimed there was a real quake in London since Craig himself said (quote) “I rather have my arm slashed than playing the role of 007 agent one more time”.
But this time the man himself confirmed he will be playing the role “just” one more time. It seems the entire Craig’s crew has been confirmed, from the stuntmen to the body-doubles, from the personal assistants to the make up artists.
What made change the mind of the actor and his crew? Someone said is because of the crazy check that the production is willing to give to Craig and crew, someone else says is only because once you are in the world of James Bond your are anyway typecast and you basically never get out.
Ivano Cheers, that we recently interviewed and he couldn’t say anything IN FRONT of the camera, said that the next Bond’s movie is the n.25: a number too important to turn down if they give you the right offer.
The numbers of the deal are still covered by a big professional secret, but it seems that we are talking way more than 100 millions GBP and yet we haven’t a precise release date but it seems somewhere in 2019.
Sam Mendez won’t direct the next movie and the name of the new director is yet to be announced but it seems Christopher Nolan is more than interested in the project. We’ll soon report any development, stay tuned.
