I saw, but I think Craig choosing to do this TV series shows his feelings towards doing another Bond and I think the time has come for a fresh Bond.

I like Daniel Craig as Bond but he's been playing the character for 10 years now. It's time for some new blood.

Well you guys might feel its time but the studio apparently doesn't
Like the article says, they are planning to delay the next Bond movie for Craig, the TV show isn't an issue, and he hasn't officially quit yet.

He's under contract for a fifth Bond, he kinda has to do it. The producers just wanna make sure he's as happy as possible when he inevitably comes back. Cranky Craig is no fun for anyone.

I just want a middle Bond story.

No rookie Bond, no "I'm too old or going to walk away" Bond, no continuation of previous movie Bond.

Just a Bond in his prime movie.


There's a threat and Bond stops it.

Craig can come back, but if he doesn't...I'd like Michael Fassbender.

Keep Sam Mendes far away.

Craig is definitely under contract for another film, which made all the recasting talk several month ago weird.

Danny Boyle had previously been offered by Eon to direct a Bond (either Skyfall or QoS) and turned it down. At the time he didn't want to direct something of that scale.

They used to require the directors to be British, but that's loosened over the years as Roger Spottiswood is Australian and both Martin Campbell and Lee Tamahori are New Zealanders.

With Waltz as Blofeld, why not go all the way and have Tarantino write and direct Bond 25.

I would hang myself.

Anywaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, I loved Spectre and like The Great Owl said earlier, I'm hoping for something similar to the ending of On Her Majesty's Secret Service. I want the next film to be what Diamonds are Forever should've been.

I feel like I should post this on every page because it doesn't seem to get through to people: THERE.IS.NO.CONTRACT.

Here is Michael G.Wilson on the matter:

Producer Michael G Wilson confirmed on Friday they expect to have Craig for a fifth time, saying: “We think we’ve got him but we don’t have a contract.”

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/d...e-more-6790760

And again, from the Hollywood Reporter:

GALLOWAY: I know. But do you have a contract with Daniel to do another picture?

WILSON: No, we don’t have a contract.


http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...l-craig-837655

And Craig himself said on a TV interview that there was no contract, though I can't remember what that was to find it. But can we please stop peddling the "contract" myth. Craig may or may not do another movie but he is NOT contractually obliged to do so.

Whats wrong with Daniel Craig continuing as Bond? His take on Bond has been the most refreshing in years, and that's coming from someone who doesn't like change much and prefers things the way they were.

Why do people think after 10 years, or 4 films its time to reboot again? Cant we halt the constant reboot process even just for a little while and have a bit of stability? Both Sean Connery and Roger Moore had 7 Bond films under their belt before they finally hung it up... Yes, Roger Moore probably went 1 Bond too long (even though his era of Bond films still remains my favorite, but that was my teenage movie-going time period, so Im biased), but still they at least brought stability to the franchise, and Craig is no where near the age of Connery or Moore when they felt it was time to hang it up. And they all towards the end, always said 'this is the last one'... but yet they still came back for another one. Craig Im sure, just doesn't want to commit to anything until he sees the script, and decides that he wants to do one more. He is only 47, that's not old.

If they are churning out films every 2 years again, then he has the potential to do at least 3 more, if he wants to. I get so tired of the series type film protocol, of having two films in the can, and the public thinking that its now time for a reboot, or a recasting (because its time for something new..) Its a series film... just like TV series, series needs stability and some consistency.

Besides the reboot ideas tend to screw the whole set as a series... they totally messed up the 'M' character by keeping Judi Dench as 'M' into the 'rebooted' Daniel Craig set... its like they rebooted the whole series, timeline, Bond, etc.. but kept Judi Dench as a perpetuated 'M' from the Pierce Brosnan set...that made no sense...

End of rant.

Recast. There is literally zero point in continuing to employ an actor who doesn't want to do the role, doesn't enjoy playing the character, thinks its beneath him and bad mouths the franchise every opportunity he gets. Stop paying this ungrateful actor millions of dollars please as his performance in Spectre was clearly that of someone who couldn't care less and is just coasting by.

Thing is they are not churning them out every 2 years. The only time that happened was Quantum of Solace two years after Casino Royale and look how that one turned out, everyone hates it. They had three years between Skyfall and Spectre and still couldn't get the script right in time. Only when they had a four year gap did they turn out an awesome Bond movie (Skyfall).

I want Craig back, he's the best Bond since Connery. Let him take some time to pursue other interests, and hopefully EON uses that time to come up with a really good script, then go all out on what will be Craig's final film and he'll be a happy camper. Seriously, Craig is not the issue, it's the writing. I don't understand how people can be sick of Craig; yeah, he's been Bond for 10 years, but all four of his movies have varied from at least good to great, and he's been awesome in the role.

Problem is he doesn't care anymore. His performance in Spectre was more than evident of that. I'm fed up with him whining about what a massive hassle it is for him to be paid millions of dollars and get to travel to amazing countries and work with fantastic actors and top of their game crew to play one of the most iconic roles of all time. If that doesn't make the guy happy then nothing will so just let him be miserable and count his money in peace.

Yeah I don't see any kind of apathy or "I don't care" in his Spectre performance, I think people are just projecting what they think of Craig onto him (not saying you're doing this, just in general). Early in the PR tour he was blasting the movie because he had just finished it and the press was already hurrying to shuffle him out the door for a new guy. Later interviews you can see he's clearly enjoying himself and likes the part. EVERY actor who's played Bond thought the character was silly and beneath him except maybe Moore, I don't hold that against Craig exclusively.

I don't know if Brosnan did, I mean he really wanted to do one more and always says so.

I don't hate Craig or anything, I just hate his attitude. I think he's great in Casino Royale to Skyfall.

Apart from the "I'd rather slit my wrists" comment, where has he made all these other negative comments? Genuine question, that's the only one I've come across. Obviously, it's not an ideal thing to say when promoting a film franchise, but it's been blown out of all proportion I think.

He was completely done in after filming and during the press tours and the thought of doing another one at that moment made him respond like that. Sam Mendes said similar things when asked about coming back after Skyfall too, though they were a little less headline inducing, yet nobody made such a big deal of it. I believe he said the thought of doing another made him feel physically ill at that stage.

EDIT: Yip, found Sam Mendes quote I referenced above and that's exactly what he said after Skyfall:

Brosnan always struck me as someone who wanted to do one more because he didn't like the movie he ended on. In Everything or Nothing he basically laughs at TND, TWINE, and DAD, and says Goldeneye is the only memorable one (or something to that effect).

Craig's just a cranky guy, I guess. He's kinda always come across as a dick when reading what he says, but watching his interviews he comes off much better. His rounds on the US talk show circuit for Spectre and his episode on Graham Norton redeemed him for me, I was ticked off at him about the "would rather slash my wrists" thing for a few weeks.

Craig's got the sort of dry-as-a-bone sense of humour that really, really doesn't translate well into the written word, but in person you can see more of that laconic humour coming through as it's supposed to.

As for Craig as Bond, I'd like to see another one from him myself, but (as said above) in the sort of strings-free Bond story of old where he faces off against a lunatic adversary WITHOUT having all those bloody emoshuns getting in the way.

I'm not saying it has to be camp, just that I'm done with all the family/relationship/he's washed up stuff for Bond. Heck, the ending to Spectre is almost perfect in that way, it could be seen as the coda to that set of films,
[Show spoiler]Blofeld's survival notwithstanding
