Updated! Daniel Craig is Bond No More?

The BBC says Craig isn’t out yet (sigh); according to their own “separate, authoritative Bond sources” who also add that “no decision is likely to be made for a while”.

I know everyone has been saying this ever since Craig’s rants during the promotion of SPECTRE but according to the Daily Mail he has turned down a £68M deal to play the British secret agent one more time.

The Mail states one LA film source said: ‘Daniel is done – pure and simple – he told top brass at MGM after Spectre. They threw huge amounts of money at him, but it just wasn’t what he wanted.’

 

 
He added: ‘He had told people after shooting that this would be his final outing, but the film company still felt he could come around after Spectre if he was offered a money deal.’
One source said that executives had finally agreed to let the actor go after growing tired of his criticism of the franchise.

Craig, 48, told interviewers last year that he would rather ‘slash my wrists’ than agree to another Bond film.

Well, hopefully we can find someone who brings a little more personality and humour to the role. Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba have been favourites for a while but personally I want Tom Ellis (Lucifer) who could bring a lighter touch again.
