Daniel Craig On How Long He'll Keep Doing James Bond Movies

In fact, according to Birth Movies Death, during a wide-ranging discussion at the New York Film Festival on Friday Craig defended the above quote comparing it to asking a marathon runner whether they'd ever run another marathon 20 feet from the finishing line, to which he insisted the answer would always be no.

"As far as I'm concerned, I've got the best job in the world".

While there have been rumors that he was offered $150 million for two additional movies, the actor was quick to deny them by adding: "There's no conversation going on, everybody's just a bit exhausted". Previously the actor has stated that he would rather "slit his wrists" than play Bond again, but he's apparently had a change of heart. Critics and moviegoers alike feared the actor had finally given up on the iconic role, prompting netizens to fan-cast stars like Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston for the part.

However, he called a potential return to the films into question when he said during an interview past year that he would rather "slash his wrists" than reprise the role for a further movie. It was the day after filming [stopped on Spectre]. "And if I can keep getting a kick out it, I will". "If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly". I'd been away from home for a year. He has also hinted at the possibility of reprising the role in a new film. Christoph Waltz, who made his debut as the infamous Bond villain Blofield, is contracted for two more films, but his involvement is apparently dependent on whether Craig returns or not.

With Craig yet to commit to another Bond film, speculation is mounting as to which actor might replace him.

Callum McDougall said the 48-year-old was "absolutely the first choice" of series producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G Wilson.

"Of course I want to be back with Daniel, I started with Daniel", the actress told reporters on Thursday.
