Daniel Craig has departed the TV show ‘Purity’ because of his Bond commitments. Excitement has been mounting over the new 007 flick, Bond 25, following news Danny Boyle will be directing and co-writing the script with long-time collaborator John Hodge, and it looks like production is going to kick off any day now following Daniel’s exit from the highly-anticipated TV series.
News of Daniel’s casting as ‘Purity’s Andreas Wolf, the charismatic leader of a fictional competitor to WikiLeaks, was reported in early 2016, not long after the English actor stated he’d rather slash his wrists than play Bond again as he was over it at the moment. Bond 25 is slated to hit cinemas in 2019.
It was revealed that 50-year-old Daniel will be receiving a star on Hollywood Walk of Fame, joining Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Michael Buble, Faith Hill, and Dolly Parton as part of the Class of 2019.
