Daniel Craig negotiating to keep his love affair with the Bond franchise
Daniel Craig is left here to stay in the physical section, so it is almost certain that in the coming years will continue to give life to the most famous British spy of all time, James Bond . The 43-year British actor is negotiating with producer Michael
Wilson to star in the next five deliveries, in addition to what is currently filming ‘Skyfall’.
"The shoot went very well and would love to surpass Roger Daniel Moore with eight films," Wilson said in relation to the mark set by London actor 84 years between 1973 and 1985.
For his part, Craig, European independent film enthusiast and not given to big Hollywood blockbusters, would secure a multimillion dollar contract and step up its presence on the big screen. It was his role in "Casino Royale" which made him an international
figure, after a career marked by roles and more recognition in his homeland than abroad.
The Briton has managed to put up with years of waiting patiently for the next installment of James Bond, after the monetary problems that crossed the studio owns the rights, Metro Goldwyn Mayer.
Now, with Sam Mendes and director, have already completed the shooting of ‘Skyfall’ and expect to release the film next year, coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the first film in the series, ‘Dr. No ‘, released in October 1962 and starring Sean Connery.
While he is promoting his new movie, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo, Craig was quizzed about the prospect of having to forego major projects due to his association with the Bond franchise.
He however was coy in being in a pleasant scenario where he has managed his workload periodically.
"I struggled long and hard about whether I would do [the Bond films], because I’ve been working in this business for 20 years and I’ve been more than successful," Craig says. "I was doing all sorts of interesting things, working with all sorts of interesting
directors, and I was very worried that if I did Bond, I would not be able to do that anymore."
"But then, there would be worse things, wouldn’t there? So, you know, it’s not a bad place to get to in your career," said Craig.
