    In that case, Daniel Craig is not confirmed either for a 5th Bond film, there hasn't been any official press release by EON

    You are wrong AGAIN. Here is EON's official press release about Craig's return: http://www.007.com/daniel-craig-return-james-bond/
    And look at my post - Bond 21 was confirmed for a November 2005 release in Feb 2004, how could have they have confirmed that without a Bond actor attached (in this case, Brosnan)?
    How? The same way they announced the 2006 release date for CR without an actor attached: http://thejamesbondfanclub.com/News62.html

    Are you blind or something? From the link you posted:

    Daniel Craig is returning to play 007 in Bond 25. The actor confirmed he would play James Bond for the fifth time to host Stephen Colbert on The Late Show last night.

    That is only Craig's words in the EON release, not a statement EON themselves, or Babs or MGW. It's a press release that confirms Craig confirmed he is returning. I'd like you to give me an actual press release from EON confirming Craig, and not a statement that is actually from Craig himself.

    Quit embarrassing yourself.

    Aren't you the one who affirmed on multiple occasions EON would never change the confirmed release date of a Bond film? Yet you can see QOS was due in May 2008 and pushed to October 2008, and Bond 21 in Nov 2005 and pushed to Nov 2006.

    I anticipate that we'll hear something soon. Also, Danny Boyle's new film starts filming this week.

    Daniel Craig was spotted in New York yesterday and he looks great

    uoqj49gn.jpg


    I haven't posted in a couple days and already I feel I've missed something important. Why is there debate here on whether Craig is returning or not?

    BTW, that is a great shot of him. He's in top form, and IMO looks like he could be beginning his Bond career rather than prepping for a swan song. He looks miles better in that photo than in either SKYFALL or SPECTRE. Great haircut as well. The lapels on the jacket remind me of LTK era Tim.

    I think it's important to note that @DaltonCraig007 is not disputing that Craig is returning.

    He is only stating that the only official statement from MGM/EON *in writing* is the one released the day after Craig appeared on Colbert confirming that he was returning. That statement only confirms his words and does not say anything more. That is the point being made.

    However, since then Babs, Craig, and now Rachel have all confirmed *verbally* that he is returning and so we should take it as a given until told otherwise.
    ---

    Regarding Craig's appearance in that photo. Quite frankly I don't see much difference between that and other photos of him we have seen of late (apart from the BAFTAs where he looked pretty awful). We did see him on camera a few weeks back and he looked pretty much the same to me.

    Not only have BB and MGM confirmed it verbally, they have confirmed it in writing as well. It's right here on EON's site: "Daniel Craig is returning to play 007 in Bond 25." https://www.eon.co.uk/daniel-craig-return-james-bond/

    It doesn't get more official than this.

    I'll put it in simple english one last time: give me an official press release from EON that does not re-use Craig's statement on the Stephen Colbert interview. In other words, that link you've posted twice is not good enough, so find another press release as proof.

    Your new link still only re-use the Craig statement.

    That may be more painful for him than the CASINO ROYALE torture. I think he can take it, though.

    Wait. Are you saying it's not official enough for you because it's referring to Craig's announcement on Colbert? I'm afraid it's time to start cutting your pills in half, son.

    Just answer the question: Give me a statement that does not re-use that statement from Craig. And if you haven't understood yet that I am not disputing the fact that Craig is returning and I'm only being an annoying pedantic person like you are, then quit with calling me a 'son', because you are the only one who seems too brain dead to understand the point of the debate.

    The reason why we haven't received another statement yet is because there is nothing more to say *officially* at this time.

    Once they have a distributor and an affirmed director and writer then we will probably get a larger and more comprehensive announcement, rather than the piecemeal (and already partially contradicted) releases we got last year.

    Guys, it's a moot point. The important information is that this has happened before, to the previous two guys who played the role. If there is a delay because of business stuff, it's possible that Craig decides to move on of his own accord. No need to rip each other to shreds debating whether Craig has officially signed on for Bond 25 or not. We'll find out soon enough when the movie is either made, or it isn't.

    What I want for B25 right now:
    - Smaller budget, less big scale action set pieces
    - Personal problems are set aside
    - Bond has to psychologically assess his villain
    - Bond uses his wits to defeat the villain and outplays him.

    Bond should go back to his thriller routes.
    I'd add that I want the film to feel like its primary purpose is to entertain, rather than to serve thematic ideas.

    No specific reason other than I can't see EON going for a Marvel contract employee while he is on contract. Once it's over, then perhaps. There are a lot of actors out there who aren't locked in at the moment. They seem to cast folks who aren't concurrently in blockbuster entries at the same time. Moreover, I'm not sure if the Marvel contract itself prohibits it. It might.

    'Trade paper Variety confirm the Bond 21 release date as November 18th 2005'

    bond21_variety_releasedate.jpg

    https://www.mi6-hq.com/sections/articles/bond_21_oct03.php3?t=&s=articles&id=0278

    'Variety, whose track record during the Brosnan-era of Bond films has proven accurate so far, claim Bond 21 will start principal photography in January 2005.

    No director has been named, but a holiday 2005 release date has already been carved out, and a treatment and outline have been worked up by Die Another Day writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
    '

    The similarities are scary
    My point is Brosnan was, in fact, confirmed to do a 5th film, otherwise why was a November 2005 release announced in February 2004, less than a year before filming would start?
    Wrong. Brosnan was NEVER confirmed by EON to do a 5th Bond film. If you believe he was, post a link to EON's press release.

    You are in denial

    Daniel Craig is returning to play 007 in Bond 25. The actor confirmed he would play James Bond for the fifth time to host Stephen Colbert on The Late Show last night.

    I asked for an EON statement from EON themselves, not from Daniel Craig. Give me a press release where the Craig confirmation comes from EON, Babs or MGW without re-using Craig's answer in the Colbert interview.
