Speaking to Total Film magazine to promote her latest film, Moonlight, Harris revealed that she has been told by Eon Productions that work on Bond 25 has not yet started.

Although the Total Film interview is not available online, it has been summarized by The Mirror. She also says that probably the only person who knows if Daniel Craig will return as Bond is Craig himself.

Talking about a recent meeting with the Eon bosses, Harris said:

They were like, ‘Naomie, nothing is happening.’ Because they’re doing another film at the moment. They were like, ‘We are focusing on this film. We have nothing to do with that.’

Key takaways

  • Naomie Harris believes only Daniel Craig knows whether he will return as 007 again.
  • The actress says work has not yet started on Bond 25 while Eon work on another film. Although not named, the film is Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool.
  • According to IMDB, the film is currently in post-production and due for release some time in 2017. That would suggest Eon could begin work on Bond 25 later this year.
