We might not know much about the next James Bond film, but we now have a release date, so mark those calendars!

On Monday, the 007 franchise revealed via social media when the 25th — yes 25th — film in the James Bond universe will be coming out and our countdown has now begun. It’s still a few years away, but we’ll take more Bond, James Bond, any day — or in this case, any year!

 

 

James Bond will return to US cinemas on November 8, 2019 with a traditional earlier release in the UK and the rest of the world,” the franchise social pages announced. While the release date for the UK has yet to be revealed, it will be sooner than November 8, 2019, so we are officially jealous.

The announcement also explained that Bond 25 — which is the current title of the project — will feature the writers who worked on Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre.

Bond 25 will be written by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade and produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli,” the Instagram post continued. “The film’s cast, director and distributor will be announced at a later date.”

As for who will actually play Bond, we will have to wait and see. Daniel Craig — who reinvigorated the Bond franchise with debut as the British secret agent in 2006’s Casino Royale — revealed back in 2015 during an interview with Time Out that he needed a break, “for at least a year or two,” when it comes to playing the iconic character again. Since then, actors including Jason Statham and Tom Hiddleston have been speculated as potential replacements. That said, Statham and Hiddleston may not want to give up their day jobs because the New York Times is reporting that Craig will indeed be back to reprise the famed role — at least one more time.

Bond 25 is set to hit theaters on November 8, 2019.
