It seems that James Bond producer Barbara Brocolli’s plan to convince Daniel Craig to reprise his role has materialized. The actor has considered doing another 007 movie. However, he has to finish his previous commitments first.
According to Showtime CEO David Nevins the “Casino Royale” actor will play James Bond again but it will depend on the producer herself. Craig has signed up to play a role in the American series, “Purity.” If Brocolli can wait till he finishes shooting for the Showtime series, then he can work for the Ian Fleming character role.
Daniel Craig To Play James Bond Once Again?
Movie News Guide reported that the series will possibly end production in 2017. It is more likely that Daniel Craig will come back for another one because his contract states so. “Spectre” was his last movie and the forthcoming one will be the completion of his contract.
One of the best Bonds in the history of the franchise has reiterated that he is done with the role as per Telegraph. He has been playing the role for decades and has been deeply known for the character. His desire to try other genres might be deferred again in case Brocolli’s team decides to wait for his available time.
Barbara Brocolli and her team have conducted auditions for the role. But it seems she has not found someone as able as Craig. Theo James, Jamie Bell, Tom Hiddleston, and Aidan Turner were some of the actors who auditioned.
Bell and James have been reportedly turned down. Recently, there were reports saying that Taylor Swift’s current boyfriend was also turned down.
Will there be another 007 movie with Daniel Craig as the lead actor? Hopefully, an arrangement will be made as to how he will work for the movie while finishing his contracted series. Stay tuned for more James Bond updates.
