Despite his remarks about wanting to move on from the role, Daniel Craig is reportedly signing on for another James Bond movie.
Sources spoke with The Mirror about the upcoming film, the follow-up to 2015's Spectre, and said that not only has "come around" to reprising his role, but Adele is being pursued to singing the theme song. Adele previously performed the theme for 2012's Skyfall.
“Craig and Adele together are the winning team, the ultimate choice, the money spinners. It’s taken time but Daniel has come round and the strong con–sensus in the Bond offices is that Mr Craig is 007 again. As for Adele, she’s more of an unknown quantity but loved being part of Bond, so the signs are positive.”
While this report is far from finalized, this falls in line with previous rumors about Craig returning for the characters 25th feature film installment.
It was reported last year that he was offered $150 Million to star in two more of the spy thrillers, and producers were lobbying heavily for his return.
A previous report said, “They have a script — screenwriting duo Neal Purvis and Robert Wade [who wrote previous James Bond movies] are writing and they’ll go into production as soon as Daniel is ready to commit.”
As far as conflicting time commitments, Craig's schedule seems relatively clear. He has two movies, Logan Lucky and Kings, set to premiere later this year. He's also set to star in the Showtime limited series Purity, but its production state is not currently not known.
