Bond 25 gets release date, Christopher Nolan tips Tom Hardy for 007

James Bond 25 Daniel Craig

The two production companies behind the franchise, Eon Productions and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, confirmed on Monday that the 25th installment of the franchise would be hitting screens in 2019.

Despite once saying he would rather slash his wrists than play James Bond again, it appears Daniel Craig has had a change of heart. The director of the next film has also not been revealed. Though, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who worked on Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre, are returning to write the screenplay for the film, which now has no official title. Both The New York Times and the British press reported that Craig returning for the next 007 film is secured. The book series continued after Fleming's death in 1964. It will be Craig's fifth film in the James Bond franchise.

The upcoming James Bond film will be the 25th film in the franchise and is now set for a release on the 8th of November, 2019.

The news release promises that "the film's cast and director will be announced at a later date". The producers will be Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, according to the 007 Instagram account. "We're done. All I want to do is move on", he added. The first one is the late Roger Moore, who played this role for seven times, so Craig will be pretty close to his record. Daniel Craig has not been announced to be playing the same role.

Meanwhile actors like Idris Elba, Tom Hardy and Tom Hiddleston have all said they would be honoured to succeed Craig as the film world's most famous spy.

Recently, Craig made waves when he bemoaned his involvement in the blockbuster franchise, leading many to question Craig's dedication to the role.
