Daniel Craig, who has arguably become the most popular and scintillating James Bond, with films like Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre, was very keen to bid adieu to this iconic character. And why not? Given the scale of the action and the mounting of every scene, any actor would be exhausted after a while. Do you know it took nearly seven weeks for the makers to shoot that thrilling and breath-taking chase sequence in Casino Royale, which only lasted for seven minutes in the film?
Well, it seems the world isn’t done yet with Daniel Craig and his Bond avatar, but the makers have to burn a big hole in their pockets to get the star on board. If Daniel charged over 37 million pounds for the last bond film, Spectre, he’s charging around 50 million pounds for the latest film.
A source said, “Daniel is worth every penny given that ‘Spectre’ made over 700 million pounds and ‘Skyfall’ over 900 million pounds before they sold DVD, streaming and TV rights.” And the bigger news is that the Slumdog Millionaire fame, Danny Boyle will be directing the latest Bond film, the film’s long time producers stated, “We are delighted to announce that the exceptionally talented Danny Boyle will be directing Daniel Craig in his fifth outing as James Bond.”
Well, all we can say is that bring the film on!
