The new James Bond film, the 25th in the series does not have a title, director or even a lead actor, but it will be released on November 8th, 2019.
Bond producers announced that the follow-up to 2015’s Spectre would arrive in approximately 28 months, but most other details including whether Daniel Craig will portray the British super spy for the fifth time haven’t been revealed.
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the screenwriting duo behind the last six 007 films, The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre will return for the latest instalment.
Earlier this month, the British press reported that Craig’s role in Bond 25 was “secured,” with producers also keen on reuniting with Oscar-winning “Skyfall” singer Adele for the theme music.
The New York Times, citing two sources close to the production team, reported that Craig’s return to the 007 is a “done deal.”
While Craig is favoured to return, it’s all but a certainty that director Sam Mendes, who helmed Skyfall and Spectre, won’t return to the franchise.
