This summer brought the announcement that Daniel Craig would be coming back for another round as James Bond in the 24th film in the series, set to be released in November of 2015. Little is known about the film but, given the ending of 2012’s Skyfall, fans have theorized that the series could go back to its roots with a tale similarly structured to some of the older entries in the franchise. Speaking with Vulture, Craig seemingly confirms fan suspicion about the film’s story, but says not to expect the campier elements.
“Hopefully we’ll reclaim some of the old irony,” he says, “and make sure it doesn’t become pastiche. 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.”
Director Sam Mendes is set to return behind the camera for the film once again from a screenplay written by John Logan. The film is set for release in UK theaters on October 23, 2015 and in US theaters on November 6, 2015.
