Los Angeles: Actor Daniel Craig might play popular fictional character James Bond again. The Spectre actor could be convinced to sign up for another 007 movie by the producer of his latest theatre project, Othello, reported AceShowbiz.

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 really 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 rumored to replace Craig as James Bond.

Producing a James Bond title is essentially a full-time job from the development process to the release. With large casts, giant action sequences, and the need to film in new and exotic locations around the world, it takes quite the workload to produce each movie.

Broccoli learned how to work from her father, Albert R. Broccoli, who can be credited with adapting James Bond.
