Rumours of who will be eventually replacing Daniel Craig as James Bond have heated up recently and it could be that the announcement could be coming sooner rather then later. Daniel Craig is doing the rounds at the moment promoting his next Bond film Spectre and speaking with Time Out it appears he wants it to be his last.
When asked if he will be returning in the next film he said “Now? i’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on. I haven’t given it any thought. For at least a year or two, I just don’t want to think about it. I don’t know what the next step is. I’ve no idea. Not because i’m trying to be cagey. Who the fuck knows? At the moment, we’ve done it. I’m not in discussion with anybody about anything. If i did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money”.
It definitely sounds like Time Out caught Daniel Craig at a bad time but it sounds like he’s had enough of the franchise at least for the moment.
When asked about who he wants to replace him as Bond he replied “Look, I don’t give a fuck. Good luck to them! All i care about is that if I stop doing these things we’ve left it in a good place and people pick it up and make it better. Make it better that’s all. You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this any more. This is really rare now. So don’t be shit…Go for it. Embrace it. Some cliched line like that. But no, just make sure you’re great. You’ve got to push yourself as far as you can. It’s worth it, it’s James Bond.”
SPECTRE is released in the UK October 26th 2015 and the US on November 6th 2015.
