Craig confirmed the news that had been widely expected during his appearance on Tuesday’s edition of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”
Colbert pressed Craig about his quote, when he joked that he would rather “rather break this glass and slash my wrists” than return to the role.
The British actor has been cagey about his return, even saying in a radio interview earlier Tuesday that nothing was confirmed.
“White Boy Rick” director Yann Demange is the frontrunner to direct Bond 25, which is dated for November 8, 2019.
The last Bond film, “Spectre,” grossed $880 million worldwide in 2015, while “Skyfall” in 2012 brought in a hefty $1.1 billion.
