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