Current 007 Daniel Craig hopes that the newest movie in the long running franchise is able to “reclaim the old irony” of earlier movies.
Speaking to Vulture, Craig stated that he hopes that the next Bond movie will “reclaim some of the old irony and make sure it doesn’t become pastiche.” Craig also stated that he can’t ham it up for the sake of it; “I can’t do shtick, I’m not very good at it. Unless it kind of suddenly makes sense. Does that make sense? I sometimes wish I hammed it up more, but I just can’t do it very well, so I don’t do it.”
Craig will be next seen playing opposite his wife Rachel Weisz in the Broadway run of the Harold Pinter play Betrayal. It is believed that following the 3 ½ month run on the stage, Daniel will reclaim the keys to Bond’s Aston Martin.
Bond 24 is rumoured to be an adaptation of the 2008 Sebastian Faulks novel, Devil May Care. The movie will reunite Craig with director Sam Mendes, and is due for release in the UK on October 23 2015 and the US on November 6 2015.
