Daniel Craig reportedly set to star in Todd Field's The Creed of Violence

Daniel Craig, Todd Field, The Creed of Violence

Daniel Craig has been James Bond for well over a decade, but the actor is already making plans for his future without the secret agent. According to Collider, Craig's first post-Bond film will be THE CREED OF VIOLENCE, an adaptation of Boston Teran's novel of the same name which will be helmed by Todd Field (IN THE BEDROOM).

The project has been in development for a number of years, with actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale circling roles at one point, but it seems as though it's finally coming together. Set in 1910 during the Mexican Revolution, THE CREED OF VIOLENCE will center around an assassin known as Rawbone (Craig) as well as a young government agent named John Lourdes as they travel from Texas to Mexico in order to bring down a smuggling ring. I like the sound of that. The script is said to be making the rounds as Todd Field moves to set up the rest of the cast, but we've still got a bit of a wait ahead of us before shooting begins. At the moment, production is expected to begin in the spring of 2020 once BOND 25 has wrapped up. It's been quite some time since Field's last film, 2006's LITTLE CHILDREN, so it will be great if the project finally gets off the ground.

A synopsis of "The Creed of Violence" via Amazon which may provide a few more details:

Mexico, 1910. The landscape pulses with the force of the upcoming revolution, an atmosphere rich in opportunity for a criminal such as Rawbone. His fortune arrives across the haze of the Sierra Blanca in the form of a truck loaded with weapons, an easy sell to those financing a bloodletting.

But Rawbone’s plan spins against him, and he soon finds himself at the Mexican-American border and in the hands of the Bureau of Investigation. He is offered a chance for immunity, but only if he agrees to proceed with his scheme to deliver the truck and its goods to the Mexican oil fields while under the command of Agent John Lourdes. Rawbone sees no other option and agrees to the deal—but he fails to recognize the true identity of Agent Lourdes, a man from deep within his past. As they work to expose the criminal network at the core of the revolution, it is clear their journey into the tarred desert is a push toward a certain ruin, and the history lurking between the criminal and agent may seal their fates.

Before we see Daniel Craig take his final bow as James Bond for BOND 25 on April 8, 2020, we'll see him lead the star-studded cast of Rian Johnson's murder mystery KNIVES OUT on November 27, 2019.
