Daniel Craig Now Wants to Do Another Bond Movie
"I'll keep going as long as I'm physically able."
Ever since Daniel Craig suggested in an interview with Esquire last month that the upcoming Spectre might be his last James Bond movie, rumours have been flying about who might play the iconic secret agent next.
However, in a new interview for the Mail on Sunday in UK, Craig has explained that his departure might not be as imminent as first thought. Craig mentions that he is "contracted for one more" Bond film, which certainly implies that he is not about to leave the role. This is despite previously stating that "at the moment I can’t even conceive [another Bond movie]."
In the new interview, the 47-year-old star does admit that playing Bond is a physically demanding job. "I work myself to death," he says. "It's getting harder. But such is life. I'll keep going as long as I'm physically able."
Earlier this week, it was rumoured that Homeland star Damian Lewis was the top choice to replace Craig as 007, with the Sunday Mirror quoting a source as saying that Lewis had the "unofficial nod" from producers. This follows much talk about The Wire's Idris Elba potentially becoming the first black Bond, something that former 007 Pierce Brosnan doesn't think will happen.
Last week the Spectre theme song, "The Writing's On The Wall" by Sam Smith, was released. The film arrives in cinemas on November 6, 2015, and co-stars Christoph Waltz, Lea Seydoux, Ben Whishaw, Monica Bellucci, and Ralph Fiennes.
