Craig to win Thunderball? Offered $150m for 2 more Bond installments.

Found 5th Sep 2016
A new day generally brings a fresh frontrunner to inherit 007’s tuxedo, with Victoria star Tom Hughes the most recent to join the likes of Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston and Aidan Turner. But according to a source reported by Radar, the most likely candidate to star as James Bond is Daniel Craig.

Craig, 48, has already starred in four films, and despite a rumoured $65m (£48.66m) payday for 2015’s Spectre, was apparently sceptical about returning for more instalments. But pre-release qualms (“I’d rather slash my wrists”) were felt to have been overstated and, in the absence of an obvious replacement, Sony are said to be keen to sign him on for at least two further films. The actor added that he reserved “the right to change my mind” about quitting the series.

He looked bored and haggard in Spectre. I couldn't even watch it through.

Spectre was poor compared to Casino Royale and Skyfall.

And what was wrong with Moonraker? I also thought Living Daylights was good.

Dearly departed Lois Maxwell-Marriott (at, almost coincidentally, 75) &, one of her replacements, Samantha Bond...

Time for a history lesson (& perhaps a pause for thought about how our lives could have very different if it wasn't for people like)...

Vera Atkins (née Rosenberg) worked as a secretary attached to the French section of the Special Operations Executive [SOE] during World War II, inspired the character of Eve Moneypenny, & was awarded both the Légion d'honneur & the Commander of the Order of the British Empire [CBE].

She died, aged 92, on 24 June 2000, in a nursing home in Hastings.

The only downside (for me) if Craig takes the large payday & allows the current characterisation to run the intended course before replacing him with a younger actor*, is that he may never get around to continuing with "Mikael Blomkvist" in the English versions of Stieg Larsson's "The Girl..." stories.

*Barbara Broccoli & Michael G Wilson are probably just waiting for Taron Egerton or Nicholas Hoult to be free from all of their current (franchise) commitments, & this will add more years to their faces so that the portrayal of Bond by either of them will be more believable.

PS. (For the record) I liked "Layer Cake".

That movie was fantastic really enjoyed it when it came out is the original movie trilogy any good ?

Isn't he contracted for one more anyway? I think this is all just marketing. "They paid him $150 million, lets go see if he was worth it", they're playing us for fools!

Not as good as the books. Cliché, but true.
Haven't seen the English version, but the Swedish trilogy was very enjoyable (though focused way too much on "that scene"). The books naturally have a lot more to them than could be squeezed into the films. It's a massive shame the author died before the books were published.

They screwed up Bond in the films with Daniel Craig. They updated every single one of the other characters, his surrounding etc but left him as a character from the 1940/50s. The they spend the rest of those films berating him for being a dinosaur, a misogynist, sexist etc. Well he's a character from the 50s been time warped into today, what did you expect?

More Austin Powers than Bond, the latest films just turned me away from a franchise I loved. Now I prefer how the Americans make spy films, light years ahead of Bond.

Just out of interest, how many women do you recall Bond seducing in "Quantum of Solace"?

With Daniel Craig they have gone back to the cold hearted professional killer that is portrayed in the Ian Fleming books.

Yeah so I hear, again and again and again. I was brought up on the films so you'll have to excuse me. Only my opinion but when they updated his surroundings from the 1950s books they might have also updated him. It all plays out like some Austin Powers movie where Bond is out of time. It bores me to be honest, I'd welcome a fresh start with a modern Bond.

Like I said, only my opinion and other people will have different opinions. Your experience may be different, that's fine, enjoy it.

All the new James Bond films are style over substance.

However, does this mean that Daniel is busy on another project now?

So no chance of Chris Nolan and Tom Hardy taking it up a level?

Isn't Christopher re-making "Memento" as his next project, & "Mad Max: The Wasteland" is going to be taking Tom's time for a while?

Are you asking me or telling me?

Surprised a 'remake' of memento is needed, but I did enjoy the original so won't complain!

Doesn't surprise me, they'll both always have busy schedules, but when I heard the rumors I got quite excited at the prospect of a Bond film involving the two of them... Maybe one day.
