It sounds like it’s finally official: the 25th James Bond film will premiere on November 8th, 2019. And, allegedly, Daniel Craig has agreed to return for a final time as the legendary spy.
That James Bond WOULD return was never really in doubt (they’ve kept this series going since 1962, they’re not about to let it die now) it was just a question of when and who would be in the title role.
Truthfully, I’ve enjoyed the rebooted James Bond films, a lot more than I initially thought I would (it helped that they reintroduced Q and Moneypenny), but I am a little nervous about Craig returning a final time, assuming he’s actually agreed to this. Right now Daniel Craig is 49 years old, which would mean he’d be at least 50 when filming commences. Now, I know 50 is the new 30 and all that, but it doesn’t change the fact that Craig isn’t as young as he used to be, and as anyone who has seen A View to a Kill knows, the last thing you want to do is have Bond played by an actor who is too old for the part. I’m not saying Craig can’t do it, but he’s getting awfully close to the edge.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out before the film launches in two years.
