"James Bond will return to U.S. cinemas on November 8, 2019 with a traditional earlier release in the United Kingdom and the rest of the world", the film's official Twitter account posted on Monday.

Callum McDougall, the executive producer of the Bond film franchise, told Britain's BBC Radio previous year that Craig, 49, was "absolutely the first choice". James Bond 25 script will be written by Robert Wade and Neal Purvis, who will work together on the project.

Daniel Craig has played Bond for the last four films and speculation surrounds whether he will return for a fith time.

In 2012, it was reported that Craig was the highest-paid Bond actor of all time after netting £31m for another two outings, which included the most recent, Spectre.

In a statement, the company also confirmed Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli will return as producers.

With its self-referential, cyclical nature, Spectre would have been a good place to end Craig's great run as Bond and start a new one with a new actor in the very new world of espionage we find ourselves in.

Naomie Harris is expected to return as Moneypenny, Ben Whishaw as Q and Ralph Fiennes as M, although no official announcements have been made. Daniel Craig has redefined the Bond role since his first appearance in Casino Royale, in 2006, and since then, he has served to capture the heart of the real Ian Fleming novels with soul and elegance. Former co-stars Dave Bautista and Jeffrey Wright have both expressed their desire to come back for another Bond film.
