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.

HollywoodNews.com: Zach Galifianakis’ latest film “It’s a Kind of a Funny Story” has just released a trailer for the film. The movie also stars Keir Gilchrist, Emma Roberts, Viola Davis, Zoë Kravitz, Lauren Graham, Jim Gaffigan and is about the following:
In this New York City-set comedy-drama, 16-year-old Craig (Keir Gilchrist of “United States of Tara”), stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, checks himself into a mental health clinic. There he learns that the youth ward is closed – and finds himself stuck in the adult ward. One of the patients, Bobby (Zach Galifianakis of “The Hangover”), soon becomes both Craig’s mentor and protégé. Craig is also drawn to another 16-year-old, Noelle (Emma Roberts of “Valentine’s Day”). With a minimum five days’ stay imposed on him, Craig is sustained by friendships on both the inside and the outside as he learns more about life, love, and the pressures of growing up.
The film is slated to hit theaters on September 24, 2010.
