Daniel Craig close to signing on for five more James Bond films?
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Daniel Craig did a lot of press over the weekend on behalf of David Fincher’s “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” (we spoke with the actor, and will have that piece on the site soon), but one or two sites snuck in questions about the leading man’s high-profile franchise – the James Bond series – which he’s working on as we speak.
According to JoBlo, Craig is in the process of “negotiating to star in five more James Bond films” as he works on “Skyfall,” the next 007 thriller which will be directed by Sam Mendes.
“I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s [Moore] record and do eight pictures,” producer Michael Wilson told the site over the weekend.
“Skyfall” is Craig’s third, after “Casino Royale” and “Quantum of Solace.” Moore, over the course of his career managed seven stints in the infamous tuxedo.
Could Craig get there? Absolutely. He’s only 43, and has been one of the most physically intimidating Bonds we’ve ever seen. But with “Dragon Tattoo” and last summer’s “Cowboys & Aliens,” Craig has shown an interest in expanding his brand, so we’ll see how dedicated he remains to the Bond franchise over the next 10 years.
