Daniel Craig says he’s still deciding about Bond 25

Daniel Craig in 2012 during filming of Skyfall.

Daniel Craig, in an interview with a Boston radio station, said he still hasn’t decided about Bond 25.

“No decision has been made at the moment,” Craig told Magic 106.7. “There’s a lot of noise out there. Nothing official has been confirmed. I’m not like holding out for more money or doing anything like that.”

The actor said there are “very personal decisions to be made at the moment… They’re desperate to get going. I would, in theory, I would love to do it. There have been no decisions just yet.”

Craig was interviewed by the station to promote Logan Lucky, the Steven Soderbergh-directed heist movie that opens on Friday. Craig also is scheduled to appear on The Late Show on CBS tonight.

The noise Craig referred to includes a story earlier this month by The Sun tabloid in the U.K. saying he has agreed to do two more 007 films. Eon Productions announced last month that Bond 25 will have a U.S. release date of November 2019, but didn’t specify cast, director or distributor.

Shout out to Marcos Konze who spotted the link to the interview and posted it on a James Bond message board. He also has a post on the James Bond Brasil website.

UPDATE (11:58 p.m.): @Bond25Film spotted another Craig interview and provided a transcript.

UPDATE II (5:15 p.m.): Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer had an investor call today after reporter second-quarter financial results. The only mention of Bond 25 was CEO Gary Barber noting the movie’s November 2019 release date. He said the film would reunite the writers of some of the most successful 007 movies. He did not mention Neal Purvis and Robert Wade by name.

    It’s always amusing how members of the peanut gallery think they can do it better. The post above has been up for hours.

  3. Dear Spy Commander,

    Your separate post didn’t appear on my screen when I logged on to your page at the end of Craig’s segment. I wasn’t trying to one-up or better you. I was merely trying to share the good news to those who may be on PST or asleep. Also, I am not a peanut.

  4. OK, Matthew. I apologize.

  5. […] was promoting last week when he announced he’d play 007 again in Bond 25. On Aug. 15, he told radio stations no decisions had been made but then said he was returning as Bond on CBS’s The Late […]
