Daniel Craig wants to quit James Bond role

Nov 7 2012, 10:03am CST | by

Daniel Craig wants ''to get out'' of playing James Bond and says someone can ''wipe their ass'' with his contract.

Daniel Craig wants ''to get out'' of playing James Bond.
The 44-year-old actor - who reprised his role as the suave spy for the third time in 'Skyfall' - is keen to quit the role, despite having signed up for the 24th and 25th movies in the franchise, and says someone can ''wipe their ass'' with his contract.
Prior to Skyfall's release, he told Rolling Stone magazine: ''I've been trying to get out of this from the very moment I got into it. But they won't let me go, and I've agreed to do a couple more, but let's see how this one does, because business is business and if the [bleep] goes down, I've got a contract that somebody will happily wipe their ass with.''
But following Skyfall's success, Daniel was full of praise for the motion picture and said he ''f***ing loved'' starring in the project.
The 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' actor also had a great night at the London premiere of 'Skyfall' last month, saying it is the ''biggest and best'' he's ever been to.
He told BANG Showbiz: ''The reception is incredible. This is my third Bond premiere and it's the biggest and the best.''
'Skyfall' sees Daniel star alongside Dame Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes and Berenice Marlohe.

James Bond 24: Looking for “Imposing Henchman”

Aug 25 2014 9:43am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

As James Bond 24 gears up to start filming this fall, they appear to be looking for a bit of brut force for their villain. Where Javier Bardem was enough to menace Daniel Craig when you watch Skyfall online, Sam Mendes and company are looking to up the ante for their follow-up with not only a villain to give Bond fits, but a sidekick for him or her who will do some damage. They are reportedly looking for someone who is at least six-foot two-inches tall and imposingly fit. And acc ...

Aug 20 2014 1:10pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

The November Man does not hit theaters until August 27, but the idea of Pierce Brosnan returning to the spy action movie world is so intriguing that Relativity has already decided to ramp up and make The November Man 2. Brosnan is Peter Devereaux, a seasoned spy who retires after a not-so-pretty mission goes wrong in the opening moments of The November Man. Years later, he is pulled back into action by the CIA and quickly learns that he is merely a pawn in s ...

A brief Bond 24 update to bring you this morning, with Sam Mendes reportedly keen on bringing Léa Seydoux on board to star opposite Daniel Craig.

The folks behind Bond 24 had a tough time with that script.  Even though Neal Purvis and Robert Wade opted out of the 24th installment after working on The World Is Not Enough, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, and Skyfall, back in June, news broke that the duo would actually return to do some work on John Logan’s Bond 24 script, specifically stepping to give it some “punch.”  However, it turns out, giving it a little punch might hav ...

‘Bond 24′ Getting Hefty Rewrite From Neil Purvis and Robert Wade

Aug 1 2014 1:00pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Bond 24 will bring Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes back into the world of globe-trotting espionage, but the screenwriting credit may not be what we were expecting it to be. While John Logan also made the leap back into Bond after Skyfall, the script turned in may be getting more of a work-over than previously suggested. Rewrites on big movies happen all the time, and weeks ago it was reported that Neil Purvis and Robert Wade, who have worked on many Bond films i ...
