Daniel Craig is returning as James Bond for what is probably the very last time. Well, he knows a bit of his future after that happens, which will be to star in adaptation of The Creed Of Violence.
Todd Field will direct the adaptation of Boston Teran’s novel of the same name. The novel synopsis is below, if you want an idea of what the story will be like:
Mexico, 1910. The landscape pulses with the force of the upcoming revolution, an atmosphere rich in opportunity for a criminal such as Rawbone. His fortune arrives across the haze of the Sierra Blanca in the form of a truck loaded with weapons, an easy sell to those financing a bloodletting.
But Rawbone’s plan spins against him, and he soon finds himself at the Mexican-American border and in the hands of the Bureau of Investigation. He is offered a chance for immunity, but only if he agrees to proceed with his scheme to deliver the truck and its goods to the Mexican oil fields while under the command of Agent John Lourdes. Rawbone sees no other option and agrees to the deal—but he fails to recognize the true identity of Agent Lourdes, a man from deep within his past. As they work to expose the criminal network at the core of the revolution, it is clear their journey into the tarred desert is a push toward a certain ruin, and the history lurking between the criminal and agent may seal their fates.
Craig will play Rawbone, in what sounds like an awesome thriller, if done correctly. A little bit Sicario, a little bit Bourne. Works for me.
The role does seem to be cut from a similar cloth as Bond, maybe not a suave super spy, but still a man of action who gets results no one else does. One of my favorite roles of Craig’s is that of a criminal in Logan Lucky. He was a bit more camp and playful than Bond or Rawbone, but he pulled it off with perfection. I would like to see him lean more towards comedy in the future.
Again, if this is done correctly The Creed Of Violence is sure to turn some heads. Hopefully this is one to keep an eye on.
