Daniel Craig Says He's 'Done' with Bond after 'No Time to Die'November 25, 2019
If you're a fan of Daniel Craig's Bond – and really, who isn't? – brace yourself for some potentially disappointing news: the actor says he's "done" with 007 after upcoming installment No Time to Die.
Craig confirmed he's completed his stint in Bond's tuxedo during his latest appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. When asked how he'll indulge now he doesn't need to keep up his 007 physique, he replied jokingly: "I think Guinness. Just Guinness. Maybe some solids occasionally."
No Time to Die, which arrives next April, will be Craig's fifth outing as 007 after Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. In October, Craig overtook the late Sir Roger Moore to become the longest-serving Bond ever – he's now racked up more than 14 years in the role!
Infamously, Craig said in 2015 that he'd “rather slash my wrists” than make another Bond movie, but he subsequently signed up for No Time to Die, so fans will be hoping he has another change of heart this time around.
In the meantime, No Time to Die is set to open in U.S. theaters on April 8, 2020, five days after its U.K. release. Rami Malek is playing the main villain who’ll cause trouble for Craig’s Bond, while franchise faves Andrew Scott, Naomie Harris, and Ben Whishaw are all back for the 25th installment. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who co-wrote the script, has recently discussed her "spicy additions" to the franchise – which sound very intriguing indeed, quite frankly..
