Sound the trumpets: Daniel Craig will play James Bond in at least one more film, which will be released in November 2019.

Scripted by long-standing Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the new movie will come to Irish cinema screens before making its USA debut in November of that year.

The film will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, who have collaborated on the last six Bond movies.

On its official Twitter account, the production team behind the "James Bond" films announced the release date of the next installment.

"A Bond movie, definitely", he said in an interview with Playboy. Also, a director has not been revealed, so we don't know yet if Sam Mendes, who directed the previous two movies "Skyfall" (2012) and "Spectre" (2015), will direct James Bond again. Rumors have been swirling that Daniel Craig, the most recent Bond, may or may not reprise his role as 007. Among the stars who have been seen as waiting in the wings to take on the role should Craig retire include Idris Elba, Tim Hiddleston, Damien Lewis, Tom Hardy and The Hobbit actor Aidan Turner.

The announcement was made by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, EON Productions and Gary Barber, Chairman & CEO, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. There has been no mention of a cast or director, but Bond 25 will potentially be Craig's final outing as Bond. It was followed by a much anticipated Quantum Of Solace (2008); however, the film failed to live up to the mark. There's also the little question hanging over Bond of which studio has won the rights as well, which have yet to be announced formally. And if I really want that silliness back, I can either watch Goldfinger again, or even the new Kingsman that's coming out soon.

For what feels like ages at this point, there have been rumours that the current Bond, Daniel Craig, is considering leaving the franchise after playing the character for the past nine years in four different films.
