Back in 2015, Daniel Craig had decided not to return to play James Bond for a fifth film due to the hectic scheduling of Spectre.
However, according to reports, after Eon Productions and MGM announced a November 8, 2019 release date, it is believed that Craig has changed his mind after all and will in fact, go one more round as Agent 007. Producer Barbara Broccoli apparently convinced Craig to return to the role and it is believed that the producers are now trying to get Adele to return to sing the new film’s theme song.
While the Craig returning news seems to be still a bit of speculation, what has been confirmed is that the script is done and credited, as with the last six films, are Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
