He may not have even started filming his final furore as Bond in ‘Bond 25’ but Daniel Craig is already looking to his Bond-less future by joining Todd Field’s ‘The Creed of Violence’.
The film is an adaptation of Boston Teran’s novel, set during the 1910 Mexican revolution, the story is told through the eyes of a small-time assassin named Rawbone (Craig) and a young Bureau of Investigation agent called John Lourdes. The pair – who are also estranged father-and-son – work together to infiltrate the Mexican criminal underground.
This will mark Field’s third feature-length directorial outing, his last being 13 years ago with ‘Little Children’. Filming is expected to commence in Spring 2020 once Craig wraps on ‘Bond 25’. Hacksaw Ridge’s Brian Oliver will produce.

The project has been a long time coming from Field, previously Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale have been linked with the film. Field made his directorial debut in 2001 with drama ‘In The Bedroom’ and followed it up in 2006 with ‘Little Children’ both received critical acclaim and Oscar nominations in the acting categories. Let’s hope this time around the picture can finally get off the ground.
Craig and Field had previously been set to work together on the TV show ‘Purity’ at Showtime but that project has fallen by the wayside. Craig has just wrapped on Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’ in which he will star alongside Chris Evans, Toni Collette, Jamie Lee Curtis and Lakeith Stanfield. He will also voice the character of Lord Ballister Blackheart in the animation ‘Nimona’
