After months of speculation, Daniel Craig has finally confirmed that he will return as James Bond in 2019 – but that his next film as 007 will be his last.
The announcement came, rather nonchalantly, during the star’s appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night, where Craig was promoting his new film Logan Lucky.
When pressed on the issue by the host, Craig said: “I have been quite cagey about it. I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”
