It's been a long time coming but Daniel Craig has kinda, sorta, definitely confirmed that he'll be back as James Bond 007 in Bond 25.
Appearing on America's The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Craig responded "Yes" to the host's inevitable question about whether he'll play the world-famous secret agent again.
"We've been discussing it, we've just been trying to figure things out," he said. "I always wanted to, I needed a break." Craig then added that he had in fact known for "a couple of months".
This follows months of speculation over the future of the next Bond movie, which is yet to find a script, director, supporting cast and distributor (Sony's rights expired in 2016). Indeed, Craig was putting up a smokescreen even in the run up to his Late Show appearance.
"No decision has been made," he told Boston radio station Magic 106.7 earlier in the day. "I know they're desperate to get going and I would in theory love to do it, but there is no decision just yet."
Due for release in November 2019, Bond 25 will be Craig's fifth movie as 007 following Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and SPECTRE.
