Despite ongoing speculation as to who might replace the actor, Sony have reportedly tried to secure Craig’s services for a further couple of movies.
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 next Bond movie, which we’re expecting in 2018, is actually the 25th in the series – quite a significant milestone in the series – and would be Craig’s fifth, following Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and last year’s Spectre. Those four movies are the highest grossing in Bond’s history, accumulating to a huge $3 billion in worldwide box-office.
