It’s really official now. Daniel Craig, the brooding blonde Bond, is back with the franchise. A while ago, we reported that he was signed on, sort of, but nothing was official. Until now. Per NY Times:
Eon Productions, the London-based company that oversees all things 007, and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which holds rights to the franchise, said on Monday that the next installment would arrive in theaters in North America on Nov. 8, 2019. That will put moviedom’s most famous spy in direct competition with a live-action fairy tale from Walt Disney Studios. (Disney claimed the date last year but has not yet disclosed the specific movie.)
I’m glad that Craig is officially back…until he declares that he’s not.
