News about the future of the James Bond franchise continues to drop. It was recently confirmed that Daniel Craig would be returning to the role of Bond despite all the speculation that he was finished with 007. Now Craig seems to be coming back for more than just one Bond film.
According to The Sun, producer Barbara Broccoli has been hard at work on getting Craig to not only be in the 25th Bond film, but the 26th as well. The 26th film could potentially be a remake of 1969’s On Her Majesty’s Secret Service and be Craig’s final turn as Bond.
The Bond insider source had these comments about the effort to get Craig on for the pair of films.
There was plenty of talk about who would be the next Bond but Barbara has managed to talk Daniel into two more films. He is loved by audiences around the world and has driven a real resurgence for the movies at the box office, so bosses knew they couldn’t lose him just yet. The script is nearly ready for the 25th film, provisionally titled Shatterhand and scheduled to be released in November 2019, so there is no time to waste on getting Daniel locked in. But the deal is almost done and the idea of returning to On Her Majesty’s Secret Service for the 26th movie is really exciting. The film sees James get married, only for his wife to be killed, so it would be an explosive way to end his reign as 007.
The 25th Bond film is scheduled to be released on November 8, 2019.
