Craig made the revelation during an appearance
on the U.S. TV program "The Late Show" on Tuesday. Asked by host
Stephen Colbert whether he would return as James Bond, Craig
responded: "Yes", to cheers from the audience.
Craig has appeared four times as the spy with a taste for
martini: in "Casino Royale", "Quantum of Solace", "Skyfall" and
Eon Productions, the company that runs the movie franchise, said
on its website that the 25th Bond movie would be released in
U.S. cinemas on Nov. 8, 2019, with a traditional early release
in Britain and the rest of the world.
Asked by Colbert whether he would appear in any further Bond
movies after that one, Craig said no.
"I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note and I
can't wait," he said.
