James Bond boss confirms Daniel Craig’s final 007 movie
Daniel Craig will definitely be making his last ever appearance as James Bond, according to the franchise boss who promises the next movie will ‘tie up’ his storyline.
No Time To Die will see Daniel, 52, deliver his final performance as 007 after 14 years in the role of the iconic British spy.
Some fans are finding it just a little hard to accept this though and have hoped Daniel would reconsider and stay on for at least one more movie.
However Barbara Broccoli, who produces the Bond movies, says the Layer Cake actor will be bowing out once and for all.
Speaking on the first episode of the official James Bond podcast, Barbara said: ‘We consider this film to be a classic Bond film but with a modern twist.
‘It’s also vitally important because it is the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing, so it’s a culmination of everything his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines.’
She added teasingly: ‘It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.’
No Time To Die, directed by Cary Joji Fukanaga, will also star Rami Malek (Safin), Ana de Armas (Paloma) and Lashana Lynch (Noma).
One person who will certainly miss Daniel is his stunt double, Bobby Holland Hanton, who recently revealed what it’s really like standing in for the movie star.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Bobby recalled: ‘My first [stunt] in Panama on Quantum of Solace when I was stunt doubling for Daniel Craig, I had to do a balcony jump from one balcony to another, three storeys up in the slums of Panama and, because it was a night shoot, it was the last shot of the night at 2am.
‘It was my first ever stunt on camera, there was no wires, I couldn’t have any safety because of the way they wanted to shoot it with the camera – the camera followed me over the balcony…I did it completely free and that was pretty ballsy!’
No Time To Die is set for release on November 12.
