Rumor: Daniel Craig may return to Bond franchise for two more films

[Beep beep beep]

Do you hear that? That's the sound of an 18-wheeler backing up onto this article, in preparation to dump as many grains of salt as it will take for everyone to enjoy this as a pure speculation piece.

On Sunday, The Sun - a tabloid newspaper hailing from the United Kingdom - proclaimed that Daniel Craig is "on the verge of signing for not one but two more installments of the spy franchise before hanging up his tux once and for all." As you'll likely recall, Craig's involvement with the super spy series remained undetermined until recently, when it was said that the English actor was reportedly set to return as James Bond. Now, The Sun is reporting that "while work is scheduled to begin on the 25th film next year, discussions are centering on a possible remake of 1969’s ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE for Daniel’s subsequent final movie."

Additionally, according to a Bond insider, "There was plenty of talk about who would be the next Bond but Barbara has managed to talk Daniel into two more films. He is loved by audiences around the world and has driven a real resurgence for the movies at the box office, so bosses knew they couldn’t lose him just yet. The script is nearly ready for the 25th film, provisionally titled SHATTERHAND and scheduled to be released in November 2019, so there is no time to waste on getting Daniel locked in. But the deal is almost done and the idea of returning to ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE for the 26th movie is really exciting."

Again, please don't take anything you've read here to the bank just yet. Accept this post as more of conversation-starter, if you will. Would you like to see Daniel Craig remain as the suave super spy for another two films? Or, do you feel it's time for him to step away from the espionage-related jazz and let some other actor have a go? What are your thoughts on the franchise possibly returning to content related to ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE? Let us know what you're thoughts are in the comments section below.

BOND 25 is scheduled for a November 8, 2019 release.
