Bond set to return in 2019, but will Craig be the star?

By Francesca Gosling

James Bond will return to the big screen for a fresh instalment in 2019, creators have said.

Scripted by long-standing Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the new movie will come to UK cinemas before making its US debut in November.

A statement from bosses said that Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli will return as producers, but a director, distributor and full cast have yet to be announced.

Yesterday's announcement comes amid rumours that actor Daniel Craig may be considering stepping down from his 11-year reign as 007, previously made famous by the likes of the late Sir Roger Moore, Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan.
