” I finished that motion picture with a damaged leg,” he informed Entertainment Weekly
” I had to question myself– was I physically capable of doing [another Bond film] or did I wish to do another one? Since that call to your partner saying ‘I have actually broken my leg’ is not pleasant.”
It was producer Barbara Broccoli that convinced Craig to play 007 once again.
” He felt at the end of the last film he had actually sort of done it,” she added.
” I said to him, ‘I do not think you have, I think there’s still more of the story of your Bond to inform.’ Fortunately, he happened to concur with that.”
Craig confirmed in the interview that this was his last Bond film.
” This is going to be my last James Bond adventure,” he stated. ” This is it– it’s over.”
No Time At All to Pass Away — which is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga– will be released on 1 April. Billie Eilish will sing the theme tune
