Daniel Craig To Be Involved In 26th James Bond Film [Rumor]

It's widely believed that No Time to Die will mark Daniel Craig's final performance as James Bond, but we won't know more until it hits the big screens.

Director Cary Joji Fukunaga shot three different endings for No Time to Die, leading some to believe that even Craig doesn't know what will happen to his character by the end of the 25th Bond film.

There are plenty of rumors that a female will be cast as Craig's replacement for 007. At the same time, the likes of Tom Hardy, Richard Madden and Idris Elba have been mentioned as possible candidates to take over the Bond role.

Nothing is official yet, but most signs point towards this being the end of Craig's tenure as James Bond. However, it doesn't necessarily mean that his work with the franchise is done for good.

According to a report from the Daily Mail, Craig may be a director for the 26th James Bond film. Barbara Broccoli, a producer for the 007 franchise, apparently wants him on board for the next Bond project.

"Barbara has been vocal in her support of him and would love him to return to direct the next one," a source told the Daily Mail. "Daniel is so in tune with the character and has been saying Bond has to grow and change to fit the times."

Of course, No Time to Die is still several months away from hitting theaters, so it's too early to start speculating about the next Bond film. It's not going to come out for at least a few years, after all.

No Time to Die marks Craig's fifth performance as Bond. In fact, he surpassed the late Roger Moore as the longest-tenured 007 actor back in October. But all good things must come to an end, and we'll likely witness the conclusion of Craig's historic run as the popular British spy once No Time to Die hits theaters.
