Daniel the new Bond?

Daniel Craig is set to become the next James Bond.

The Layer Cake actor has been offered a three-film deal by Bond bosses reports The Sun.

Daniel's deal ends the speculation about who will become the next 007.

Clive Owen reportedly turned down the role and there was also reports that Pierce Brosnan was to reprise the role.

A film source said: "Everybody who works at Eon Productions, who make the Bond movies, has been told Daniel is the new 007. He is going through the deal with his lawyers.

It is a big commitment for a minimum of ten years but he has indicated he will take the job."
