After months of rumors and denials, we finally got confirmation this week on who the “new” James Bond will be. Daniel Craig — the old James Bond — confirmed Tuesday night on CBS’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that he will return for another movie as 007.
The movie, which does not yet have a title, is coming out in November of 2019.
“Craig’s time as Bond has been distinguished,” the AP notes. “His ‘Skyfall’ remains a high-point in both dollars and quality for the 55-year-old franchise. His last one, 2015’s ‘Spectre,’ grossed $880 million worldwide. Most consider him a terrific Bond who has raised the bar for the franchise, and his official return was greeted warmly on Wednesday.”
The next movie marks Craig’s fifth time out as Bond.
