James Bond star Daniel Craig to become Hollywood royalty as he's set to receive star on Walk of Fame

James Bond star Daniel Craig is about to become fully-fledged film royalty as he’s set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next year.

The British actor, 50, is among a new batch of A-list stars, including Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, to be honoured with the accolade in 2019.

“Congratulations to Daniel Craig who has been selected as one of the recipients of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2019,” tweeted the official James Bond Twitter account.

Other people to receive stars next year are Oscar-winning Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro and Star Wars actress Lupita Nyong’o.

Tyler Perry, Alan Arkin and Gena Rowlands make up the Motion Pictures category.

Musicians including Pink, Michael Buble, Faith Hill, Teddy Riley and Cypress Hill will receive honours in the music category.

Chairman and Walk Of Famer Vin Di Bona said: “The Walk Of Fame Selection Committee is pleased to announce our newest honourees to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

“The committee always tries to select a group of talented honourees that appeal in various genres of the entertainment world.

“I feel the committee has outdone themselves and I know the fans, tourists and the Hollywood community will be pleased with our selections. We are excited to see each and every honouree’s face as they unveil that majestic star on Hollywood’s most famous walkway.”

Craig is gearing up to shoot what is expected to be his final Bond film with director Danny Boyle, which is scheduled for release next year.

The Slumdog Millionaire director appeared to let the cat out of the bag back in March, when he revealed that he had been working on a script for Bond.

Speaking to Metro US at the premiere of drama Trust he said: “We are working on a script right now. And it all depends on that really.

“I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in 6 or 7 weeks.

Craig is set to hang up his black jacket after the November 2019 release, with the rumour mill about his replacement in full swing.
