Daniel Craig is returning to play James Bond for the 5th time, which is kind of unexpected considering he once said he would rather "slash" his wrists than return to the iconic role.
The New York Times confirmed today that the 49-year-old actor will play the British secret service agent in the next film, which is set to hit theaters November 2019.
Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who wrote the last six Bond installments, will return for this film - the 25th for the iconic character.
The report comes after Craig vehemently denied he would ever play Bond again. In 2016 he told reporters he would "rather slash his wrists" than do another, and that it would "only be for the money" and that "all I want to do is move on".
We're excited to see the talented actor return, but we hope he gets a little more enthusiastic about the opportunity.
Considering we've got fantastic English actors like Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba who would die to step in, it seems silly to have an incredibly reluctant star playing James Bond. But that's none of my business *sips martini*
