In fact, The New York Times reported that "two people briefed on the matter" said that Craig had a change of heart and chose to do another Bond film following his controversial Time Out interview in 2015.
James Bond is returning to movie theatres in 2019, producers said on Monday.
James Bond 25 script will be written by Robert Wade and Neal Purvis, who will work together on the project.
Of late, Daniel Craig had made impressions when he lamented his participation in the epic franchise, thereby making people question Daniel Craig's dedication to the cause.
Rumors have it that actor Daniel Craig, who played the film franchise's protagonist since the 2006 installment, "Casino Royale", will be returning to reprise his 007 role.
Word is officially out and the 25th installment of the film, ' James Bond, ' is coming to theaters November 2019.
The 49-year-old actor will be returning as 007 according to a Tuesday report from The New York Times.
The announcement comes amid rumours that Craig would not be playing Bond again, after he famously told Time Out magazine he would "rather slash my wrists" than do it again. "We're done. All I want to do is move on".
Meanwhile actors like Idris Elba, Tom Hardy and Tom Hiddleston have all said they would be honoured to succeed Craig as the film world's most famous spy.
The UK's Mirror reported that Craig would absolutely return to the 25th installment of 'James Bond.' They report that he chose to stay on the cast because he heard a new British talent would come on board to replace him. "James Bond 25" is still looking for a director, supporting cast and film distributor.
