The London Evening Standard is reporting that producers for Eon Productions have finally convinced Daniel Craig to take on the mantle of James Bond one more time. Apparently, Daniel Craig has been encouraged to talk with Barbara Broccoli after the success of his off-Broadway play Othello, which Barbara Broccoli helped produce. Daniel Craig had previously stated that he would rather "Slash his wrists" than work on another Bond movie again. Lrm has previously reported that Neal Purvis and Robert Wade have been working on the script for Bond 25.
