A few months ago the 25th official James Bond movie was confirmed with a release date set for November 2019.
Despite speculation Craig had quit, the 49-year-old star revealed soon after that he would in fact be returning for a fifth and final 007 outing.
Nevertheless the film’s title (rumoured to be Shatterhand), cast and director are still yet to be announced and now producer Broccoli has given a much needed update on where things stand.
Speaking with RTE Entertainment, the producer – who was promoting her new spy film The Rhythm Section – teased the possibility of taking Bond to Ireland.
She said: “We love being here, we love the Irish crew… It’s just the people; it’s the welcoming spirit of the people that’s just so lovely.
“Let’s see, maybe we’ll try and get Bond here at some point. I must say, having experienced it, I would love to come back.”
But when it specifically came to the next 007 instalment, the producer teased: “We’ve got the biggest and most important piece in place, which is Daniel [Craig]. I’m very happy that he’s coming back.
“So, to me, that’s the crucial thing… We’ve got our Daniel; we’ve got to find the director. We’re working on the script and we’ll see… Hopefully by the beginning of the year we’ll have more news on all those fronts.”
