Studio still seeking Daniel Craig to return as James Bond

While Daniel Craig and director Sam Mendes seem to have ended their James Bond involvement, Craig is still being sought by the studio and Barbara Broccoli in particular.

Producer Callum McDougall told the BBC that Craig remains the “first choice” for producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.

“I wish I knew,” he said when asked if Craig is returning for another Bond film. “We love Daniel. We would love Daniel to return as Bond. Without any question he is absolutely Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli’s first choice. I know they’re hoping for him to come back.”

Craig, who is the sixth actor to play Bond, started in the role with “Casino Royale” in 2006. That was followed by “Quantum of Solace” in 2008, “Skyfall” in 2012, and “Spectre” in 2015.

When asked by Time Out magazine in October 2015 if he could imagine doing another Bond movie, he replied: “Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
