Daniel Craig Offered A Shitload Of Money To Do Two More Bond Films

Rumours are flying around like stray bullets as to who will play 007 in the next Bond movie. Since it was reportedly claimed that Daniel Craig would rather 'slash his own wrists' than play the role, a number of potential men for the job - and more rumours - came to light. Among others, Tom Hiddleston, Charlie Hunnam and Aidan Turner were all surrounded by speculation.

Well, in a curve ball announcement, it is now being reported that Sony is hoping that Craig sticks around for a little longer that Sam Mendes. The Studio has reportedly offered the 48-year-old actor an astonishing $150 (around £112) million to return to the role for two more films.

"[Craig] has played a genius hand. Everyone knows how much executives adore him, and the idea of losing him at such a crucial time in the franchise isn't an option as far as all the studio honchos are concerned," a source told Radar. "The studio is desperate to secure the actor's services while they phase in a younger long-term successor," the source continued.

Sony apparently wants to shoot the two films 'virtually back-to-back', although neither would be directed by Sam Mendes, who has also ruled himself out of returning to the franchise after Skyfall and Spectre, reports the Metro.

I'm sure if he wants it, though, it will be Craig's. However, considering the fortune he has already landed from his previous work playing Bond, it's not as if he needs it either way.

Only time will tell.
