Daniel Craig says it’s someone else’s turn to take on James Bond, as he rules out directing a 007 movie too.

Now in post-production is next year’s new outing for James Bond 007, No Time To Die. The film is set to see Daniel Craig in the title role for the fifth time, and what had widely been assumed to be his last outing as 007. And in a new interview, Craig has confirmed just that.

He’s done a new interview in Germany where he’s declared that now it’s someone else’s time to take on the role. Furthermore, he was asked if he fancied directing a future James Bond adventure, and it seems really quite clear that he does now wish to do that.

“For God’s sake no”, he said, according to our efforts with Google Translate.

“I want to come home, eat something and then go to bed. If you’re a director, then at night you’re still with the producers, screenwriters, on the phone. And then after two hours of sleep, you have to go back up to the set. No thanks.”

No Time To Die arrives in cinemas in April 2020.
