Daniel Craig not ready to say if he’ll do more Bond films
The upcoming SPECTRE will be Daniel Craig’s fourth outing as the world famous 007, and the 47-year-old actor reflected on what his latest turn as the character has been like in an interview with Event.
“It’s getting easier because I’m doing less [stunt work]. I’ve got so many good doubles.”
Craig went on to contradict himself by saying that the training aspect of preparing for the role isn’t getting easier and said he’s not prepared to make a call about whether he’ll stick around once his contract is fulfilled.
“I work myself to death… It’s getting harder. But such is life. I’ll keep going as long as I’m physically able. I’m contracted for one more – but I’m not going to make predictions. These movies don’t get made very often. It’s just the fourth time for me, a spit in the ocean. If you don’t get excited about making a movie of this size with this cast, with Sam Mendes… then go home.”
With SPECTRE, Craig will tie his predecessor Pierce Brosnan at four appearances but he’s still sitting behind Sean Connery’s six and Roger Moore’s seven. Would you like to see Craig continue to play Bond after the 25th James Bond film? Let us know in the comments below!
In SPECTRE, a cryptic message from the past sends James Bond (Daniel Craig) on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.
Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.
As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.
Directed once again by Sam Mendes, SPECTRE is written by John Logan and Neal Purvis & Robert Wade. The 24th Bond film hits theaters and IMAX on November 6, 2015.
