The 23rd James Bond film will start shooting late next year, according to Daniel Craig.
The thesp made the disclosure Friday in New York in response to a fan’s question as he exited the stage door for “A Steady Rain,” a Broadway play in which he’s starring with Hugh Jackman.
MGM had no comment about Craig’s comment. He’s starred in “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace,” which took in nearly $1.2 billion in worldwide box office.
The most recent announcement on the Bondpic came in June when Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli of EON Prods. and MGM disclosed that Peter Morgan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were writing the script for the film, which does not have a director attached yet. Purvis and Wade most recently worked on “Quantum of Solace” and “Casino Royale.”
