Daniel Craig is reportedly set to return as James Bond for one more film after being ‘persuaded’ by producers. The British actor, who previously joked that he’d rather ‘slash his wrists’ than play the secret service spy again, is thought to be in talks with Barbara Broccoli about a new script.
According to Page Six, Craig was finally convinced to step into 007’s again after working with Broccoli on his hit off-Broadway production of Othello. “Daniel was very pleased with how ‘Othello’ went and the great reviews. Now Daniel’s talks with Barbara are going in the right direction,” said a source. “They have a script — screenwriting duo Neal Purvis and Robert are writing and they’ll go into production as soon as Daniel is ready to commit.”
