For a secret agent, James Bond’s not doing a great job of keeping his comings and goings private at the moment. We just found out 007’s next film, the 25th in the long-running franchise, will open in November of 2019, and according to The New York Times, Daniel Craig is expected to reprise his role as James Bond. Now Deadline got word of the frontrunners to direct the still-untitled film.
With the arrival of San Diego Comic-Con last week, the major announcements started flying fast and furious. After the avalanche of release date announcements, trailer releases, and other first-look headline-generators, the news broke that the gears of progress had begun turning for James Bond’s next cinematic outing. The official Twitter account posted that the still-untitled James Bond 25 would hit American theaters on November 8, 2019 after an earlier release in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, and also presumably after shiploads of online pirates have gotten their mitts on it. Americans do not tend to take delayed release dates lying down.
