James Bond release will be ‘DELAYED for Rachel Weisz’s pregnancy’

Daniel Craig steps out with pregnant Rachel Weisz, 48, amid claims ‘James Bond release will be DELAYED for the birth’

  • James Bond star Daniel, 50, and his wife Rachel, 48, are expecting their first child together 
  • Production on the next Bond film will be halted to allow the actor to help his wife through her pregnancy
  • The untitled 25th film in the hit Bond franchise was originally set to be released in 2019, and follows 2015’s Spectre

There’s been much speculation over the next James Bond movie. 

Yet now that Daniel Craig has confirmed he’ll be taking on the iconic role once more, there are reports the release date will be pushed back to take into account his wife Rachel Weisz’s pregnancy. 

The couple were seen out in New York on Thursday as the news broke, keeping a low profile as they ran errands in the city.

If the film date is delayed, director Danny Boyle will have more time to complete his other movie, a Beatles-inspired film with writer Richard Curtis.

An insider told The Sun: ‘Pushing back the schedules suits all parties.

‘Daniel can concentrate on matters at home with Rachel, which are pretty life-changing, to say the least.

‘And Danny can now afford to add the finishing touches to his latest project without the prospect of a clash with a monster project like James Bond.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Daniel, Rachel, Danny and Eon Productions. 

Radiant: Rachel Wesiz, 48, who is pregnant with her second child, and first baby with Daniel Craig, also kept a low-profile as she headed out in the city

Daniel, 50, and Rachel, 48, announced last week that they are ‘thrilled to have a little human’ on the way.

Rachel told the New York Times: ‘I’ll be showing soon. Daniel and I are so happy. We’re going to have a little human. We can’t wait to meet him or her. It’s all such a mystery.’

The London-born star already has an 11-year-old son called Henry with Hollywood director Darren Aronofsky, who she dated between 2001 and 2010. 

Meanwhile, Daniel has a 25-year-old daughter called Ella from his marriage to actress Fiona Loudon.

The as-yet untitled 25th film in the hit Bond franchise was originally set to be released in 2019, and follows 2015’s Spectre.

It will mean Daniel will have played Bond five times, although he is still behind Sir Sean Connery’s six appearances and Sir Roger Moore’s seven films.

He has confirmed that Bond 25 will be his last outing as the dashing Secret Secret agent.

The star kicked off his Bond career in 2006’s Casino Royale, before appearing in Quantum of Solace in 2008. In 2012 he appeared in his third Bond movie Skyfall.
