As well as Daniel Craig pitching in a good word for the producers, other James Bond alumni have come out in support of Bond.
Many stars were gathered at an international fan even in London, UK last weekend and fans may be reassured to know both recent Bond girl Gemma Arterton – Agent Fields in Quantum of Solace – and classic villain Richard Kiel – Jaws in Moonraker and The Spy Who Loved Me – say… James Bond will return.
Gemma said: “It shows the state of the film industry at the moment, especially the British film industry. Fingers crossed – it’s James Bond so it has to continue and it will. It’s just a minor blip.”
“They had a gap before… Just before Goldeneye,” says Kiel.
“Somebody bought MGM. So it’ll be made. There’ll be another Bond film, don’t worry.”
