How old is Craig now - must be getting on for 50 surely?
He'll be 50 next year and Sir Roger Moore retired when he was 58.
Yeah I agree about being cautiously watching this develop.
I was never a huge Moore fan so I kind of gloss over just how old he got as I lost interest in that era generally, but yes there's obviously precedent for a fairly old Bond to still work. Plus I imagine Craig has kept himself in a bit better shape than Moore ever did.
Talking of Moore's age I still find it funny how Moore was actually older than Connery when he took over.
James Bond will return to US cinemas on November 8, 2019 with a traditional earlier release in the UK and the rest of the world. Bond 25, the next adventure in the long-running action franchise, will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, long time collaborators and writers on previous Bond films including CASINO ROYALE, QUANTUM OF SOLACE, SKYFALL and SPECTRE. The film will be produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli. Additional details regarding distribution, including international release dates, the film’s cast and director, will be announced at a later date.
Spectre was a bit naff (that helicopter scene ) so not particularly enthused about this. Feels like the series could do with some new blood, Craig seems to have lost the spark that he has in Casino Royale.
I'd like a more concise story that isn't just over the top ridiculous, I know it's Bond but the past few have felt stupid, and almost as if they've taken Bond as far as they can, whilst simultaneously wasting the talents of the two of the best villain actors around Waltz/Bardem
