‘Bond 25’ now has been set for theaters in 2019

The upcoming James Bond film, the untitled 25th film in the official 007 canon, may not have a director or even a lead actor, but will now have an official release date: November 8th, 2019.

Bond producers announced Monday that the follow-up to 2015’s Spectre will indeed next fall and the focus will now shift to the signing of Daniel Craig or the recasting of the role.

In one report Craig would say that he would “rather break this glass and slash my wrists” than play Bond again and then later drop hints that he may return. Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jamie Bell and Tom Hardy were among the actors rumored for the Bond role if Craig did step down.

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the screenwriting duo behind the last six 007 films – The World Is Not EnoughDie Another DayCasino RoyaleQuantum of SolaceSkyfall and Spectre – will return for the latest installment.

Although Craig said in the aftermath of Spectre that he “rather break this glass and slash my wrists” than play Bond again, it’s been strongly hinted in recent months that the actor will once again portray 007 in the new film; Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Jamie Bell and Tom Hardy were among the actors rumored for the Bond role if Craig did step down.

The New York Times, citing two sources close to the production team, reported that Craig’s return to the 007 is a “done deal.”

Director Sam Mendes, who helmed Skyfall and Spectrewon’t return to the franchise.

“I’m a storyteller. And at the end of the day, I want to make stories with new characters,” Mendes said in May 2016. “It was an incredible adventure, I loved every second of it,” Mendes told. But I think it’s time for somebody else.”

The new James Bond film will arrive in theaters on November 8th, 2019.
