According to certain reports, Bond famed English actor Daniel Craig has reportedly signed up to appear in his fifth James Bond film. On the other hand, the makers are also “determined” to have Adele write and perform the theme song for the next film. Adele’s title track for Skyfall, the most successful Bond film of all time, became a global hit single in 2012 for which, she went on to win an Oscar, a Grammy and a Golden Globe.
“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 consensus 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,” a source has confirmed The Mirror.
Daniel Craig, who has notoriously bated down the role in 2015, claiming, “I’d rather slash my wrists” than play 007 in another film, is also reported to be secured for the franchise’s next instalment Bond 25, marking the 49 year old actor’s fifth outing as James Bond.
Sources confirm that Adele, who has cancelled the last two dates on her epic world tour after damaging her vocal cords earlier this month, is reportedly in talks with longtime Bond producer Barbara Broccoli.
Bond 25 is expected to begin shooting next year.
