In a press junket for Cowboys & Aliens the James Bond 007 actor was inevitably quizzed by IGN movies about the forthcoming 007 adventure.
Not only has he told the press that he is ‘gagging’ to get started but he might have let slip that Moneypenny is returning. Some commentators such as those at Comic Book Movie are taking an open ended question about the return to more traditional elements, Moneypenny included and Daniel Craig’s unwillingness to deny that fact as indication that the famous secretary will be back. The British tabloids were keen to predict Naomie Harris would play Miss Moneypenny.
What Craig actually told the media was:
You’ll just have to wait and see. Sam is a huge Bond fan, he understands the history of it, he understands what Bond is about. The script is incredible, we’re in good shape.
Mendes has kept quite about his fandom and his artistic vision for James Bond to date, but that may have just been ousted by Bond himself.
