Breaking news: Sources say Sony executives are willing to pay Daniel Craig near $150 million to keep playing the 007 spy James Bond.
The new James Bond script has been put a hold at the moment, until 2018, while staff work on other projects. During this gap, Sony executives are desperate to have Daniel Craig comeback on as James Bond. There’s a lot of money to be made by having Daniel Craig continue to reprise the role as James Bond.
Sources hinted that…Daniel Craig may have already signed the new Bond contract.
Each James Bond movie can gross hundreds of millions a year at the box office. People love to see what the MI6 agent is up to. Previously Daniel Craig compared playing James Bond for the next movie, to cutting his wrist. Quite a scary comment to make, while being interviewed by the press.
It would make sense to keep Daniel Craig on as James Bond as they have not found the next star.
It is obvious that Daniel Craig wants to play different roles and does not want to dedicate an entire year to playing the superhero James Bond.
When you take on a world-class Hollywood role, you travel around the world, re-shoot the same scene a hundred times and on top of this you have to spend months promoting the movie and doing interviews.
It isn’t easy to be the 007 spy…James Bond. $150 million would basically keep yourself set for life. Just like ‘Casino Royal’, Daniel Craig as James Bond will have to consider the positives and the negatives before signing the next contract.
Do you want someone new to play James Bond or would you be happy with Daniel Craig?
