Daniel Craig Denies Four More Bonds!
I'd hate to have to post a retraction, but the reality is someone said that Daniel Craig would be back, and someone was wrong. When I ran this article about Daniel Craig already being signed on to return for four more James Bond movies, including the 22nd film in 2008, I was pretty excited to hear he'd return. However, Craig doesn't seem to be on the same level, not only denying that anything had been signed, but also almost coming across like he doesn't want to be back for four more Bonds at all.
In the original article, MGM president Harry Sloan made the statement saying that they had "signed Daniel Craig to do four more James Bond films." However, while doing press for his upcoming movie The Golden Compass via Cinematical, Daniel Craig made some corrections very public.
"Well, that's what's been said, it's not that it's not true, because I haven't signed up. What I've done is I've signed up on the next movie [Bond 22], after that we'll see. That's the way I'm doing it, and certainly it's not four more - that's the truth. It's certainly not four more."
Certainly not? Does Craig want to move on from this franchise stop quickly? The question now posed is whether he is just waiting to see how Bond 22 goes and if the franchise is still fresh when it continues on. Or whether he is just tired of it and won't at all sign up to four more. Either way it's definitely sad news to hear that Craig isn't as enthusiastic about playing James Bond as the public is. Hopefully that changes when the buzz picks up again late next year on Bond 22!
