After last week’s live reveal, Bond 25 has already begun shooting in Jamaica, with Craig and Felix Leiter actor Jeffrey Wright spotted on set. The 51-year-old James Bond star has returned for his fifth and final outing and being such an established figure in the franchise allegedly has a lot of demands this time around. According to The Sun’s Bond insider: “Daniel is a perfectionist and his chef will only cook for him. That, coupled with having his own trainer with him, means he will be fighting fit for what is a slog of filming schedule.”
Meanwhile, The Sun’s Bond source also commented on Craig’s creative control on Bond 25 and the possibility that he wants a politically correct 007.
Allegedly, Bond producers paid Craig £18.4 million and gave him complete creative control over casting Bond girls to the script and the role of the director.
Their insider said: “The move has got people’s backs up.
“Some are expecting constant arguments, as whatever Craig wants, he gets.”
Craig may have said Bond 25 is his last 007 movie, but he’s being rather coy about it. In one interview he said: “Apparently.”
While GMB’s Ross King revealed Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is trying to convince Craig to do one more 007 movie after Bond 25.
He said: “When I was asking her about it [being Daniel’s final Bond film], she said, ‘I’m in complete denial’. She is a very powerful lady, as we all know. Maybe don’t count out the fact that he might come back for just one more.”
Bond 25 is released in UK cinemas on April 3, 2020.
