The British actor, 52, who first appeared as Bond at Casino Royale in 2006, has already spoken about leaving the franchise after the next episode.
However, in March this year, a film source said, “I don't think Daniel is through with James Bond despite his previous claims. He was in the same position after Specter came out where he said publicly and loudly that he was done and over time just didn't.
"There's something itchy about this part, and he's not ready to see how it goes to another actor."
Craig has previously confirmed that the Bond movie will be his last after starring in Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall and Specter.

His last round as Bond was in 2015 in Specter, which at the time was considered his last foray as a spy.
Craig said that Bond's "physicality" was "in a way preparation" because he wouldn't get the script beforehand.

He said, “I've suffered from this in the past. I suffered because it was like, “I can't handle it. I can not handle this.
