Daniel Craig may have said back in 2015 that he’d rather “slash his wrists” than play James Bond ever again, but his checking account was more like, “Ehhhh, that direct deposit from MGM is gonna be a tourniquet that stop’s the bleeding, Drama Queen.”
The New York Times (via People) reports Danny boy will be back as Bond in November of 2019. Mieka reported back on her and my first day at DListed Elementary School that the new 007 flick might be a reunion of sorts, as Adele might return to croon out the movie’s song. Which is great, because Spectre was doomed from the start with Sam Smith’s cat screeching.
Daniel really holds back when speaking to the press, so it’s unclear why he would decide to ever return the franchise he so famously poo-poohed. Just kidding, he told Time Out back in 2015, “If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.” And money, it is! Sony is said to be offering him $150 MILLION to do two more films. While that is a LOT of shaken martinis, let’s just call a spade a spade: that’s just what the production and craft services teams pooled to offer him, just so they don’t have to hear Tom Hiddleston blab about how seeing him boning the Bond Girl in 3-D is going to really boost morale around UNICEF sites around the world.
