Eon announces Bond 25 release date and confirms writers

This evening Eon Productions announced via the official 007 website the release date of the next James Bond film.

Bond 25

The announcement confirms what was already expected. That rather than a three year gap between films, Bond 25 will be released a full four years after SPECTRE (2015). The US release is pegged at 8th November 2019, with additional announcements regarding international release dates to follow. It does though confirm the UK and international release will be prior to that of the US.

The release also confirms Baz Bamigboye’s revelation that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been hired to write the film. However, it also states that the cast and director will be announced at a future date.

It is currently unknown whether Daniel Craig will reprise the role of James Bond for a fifth time. Recent press speculation suggests Barbara Broccoli believes she is close to securing Craig’s services but there is no evidence to back those claims.

    I am pleased that Daniel is playing again as a big James Bond fan for me what would be a good ending for Daniel is to do two films back to back and then he can retire ,as this has never been done before

    If you read it you’ll notice that no actor is confirmed.

    Daniel Craig is NOT confirmed for Bond 25, whatever you may have read elsewhere.
