Also starring Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Heigl, Hilary Swank, Katherine Waterston, Jack Quaid, Brian Gleeson and David Denman, the movie is scheduled to be released in U.S. theaters on October 13, 2017.
Craig, who seems set to have filmed his final Bond movie, has also signed up for a US TV series called Purity.
Based on Jonathan Frantzen’s novel of the same name, it is billed as a a “morally complex story of youthful idealism, extreme loyalty and cold-blooded murder.”
It will begin production in 2017 and will air in two instalments over the course of two years, according to US industry website Deadline where Craig will play the male lead and also executive produce the series.
Showtime president David Nevins said: “The brilliant Daniel Craig is perfectly cast as the charismatic, mysterious Andreas Wolf.”
