Despite the speculation that Daniel Craig might have starred in his last Bond movie, until now the actor had not commented on his future as 007. Craig has now hinted that he would still be up for more Bond films.
As reported by Vulture, the star was asked about Bond while attending the New Yorker Festival this weekend. “As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world,” he said. “I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it.”
Craig also addressed the comments he made last year while promoting Spectre, when he said that he would rather “slash my wrists” than play 007 again. “They say that s**t sticks, and that definitely stuck,” he said. “It was the day after filming [stopped on Spectre]. I’d been away from home for a year.”
“It’s a good gig. I enjoy it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”
Last month it was rumoured that the star had been offered $ 150 million to play the iconic secret agent for another two films, which would be shot back-to-back.
A number of names have been rumoured as possible replacements for Craig over the past few months, including Idris Elba, Michael Fassbender, and Tom Hiddleston.
Director Sam Mendes quit the franchise earlier this year having helmed Spectre and its predecessor Skyfall.
