Daniel Craig, who once said he’d rather “break glass and slash my wrists” than play 007 again, told “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday that he will return for another James Bond film.
“I think this is it,” the British actor said. “I just want to go out on a high note. I can’t wait.”
In July, The Mirror reported that the 49-year-old star was in talks to reprise the Bond role once again, despite previously making it very clear that he had little interest in returning after the 2015 film “Spectre.”

“Skyfall,” which was released in 2012, remains the highest-grossing 007 film to date.
Speaking to Time Out London in 2015, the actor was beyond blunt when addressing his desire to return to the character.
“Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” he said when asked if he’d do a fifth film. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
