Skyfall star Naomie Harris believes that Daniel Craig, with the right amount of persuasion, will return to play the James Bond role again. The production team is all set, the script and the lineup of the cast members are all in. However, the franchise has not filled the lead actor’s slot as of now. The showrunners are also hoping that Daniel Craig will do the role one more time.
According to the Moonlight actress, there is no other actor that Barbara Brocolli wants to play as the beloved James Bond. Screen Rant reported that Harris is positive that the Road to Perdition star will return to the franchise. She also said that his last two films, Skyfall and Spectre, were the highest grossing of all the Bond movies.
Naomie Harris Believes Daniel Craig Will Reprise 007 Role
The OBE (Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) award recipient believes that the long-time followers of the franchise want no one else but 48-year-old Craig. She and the other cast members collectively want him to come back and he is fully aware of the fact. With the persuasion coming from Brocolli and a meaty contract, Daniel Craig might retract his statement before.
According to Craig, he is done with the franchise. He added that he wants to focus on other film genres. He has been with Ian Fleming’s projects for a decade and he wants to try something new.
There were auditions for the role and many versatile actors auditioned and showed their intent. However, no choice was ever made. Will Daniel Craig give James Bond one more try?
Possible Actors To Play James Bond
According to Den of Geek, there are two candidates who are on the top of the list of possible lead stars. Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy are the favorites among the hopefuls. Reports claim that Tom Hiddleston was also aiming for the role. Theo James, Aidan Turner, Idris Alba, James Norton, and Jack Huston’s names were also reported to have shown interest.
Daniel Craig has done four stories for James Bond. Skyfall, Spectre, Casino Royale, and Quantum of Solace showed his remarkable talent. He was one of the actors who has stayed in the franchise for a long time. The other Hollywood stars who had amazing careers by playing the spy in tuxedo are Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, David Nevin, and George Lazenby.
Will a new James Bond play the role this time? Will Daniel Craig return again as Naomie Harris said? Stay tuned for updates.
