Barbara Broccoli, who brought in Craig in 2006 for the string of hits Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre is serving as producer for the play and it is believed that she would "ask the actor to reprise his role for the upcoming Bond 25." 

 

"Daniel thinks of himself as a 'serious actor,' and he wants to stretch his artistic muscles. And Barbara believes in his talent. For her to do this (play) for him is a gift- of course she wants him back - this is going to entice him to make another Bond movie," a source said.

 

Meanwhile, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, Michael Fassbender and Jack Huston were previously rumoured to replace Craig as James Bond.
