Following constant rumors over Craig’s future in the James Bond franchise, the actor is claimed to be on board for a fifth film given wife Rachel Weisz’ permission.
47 year old English actor Daniel Craig has portrayed the Ian Fleming created super spy James Bond on four occasions, and he is contracted for a fifth. The actor commented during the press circuit for Spectre that he would rather “slash [his] wrists” than return to Bond. The implications of this comment have blown out of proportion, and now it seems up in the air whether or not Craig will opt to play Bond for a fifth go around.
If The Sun’s source is to be believed, we finally have some solid proof of Craig’s desire to continue playing Bond. Still, we remain in the dark beyond mere speculation.
So far neither Craig nor Eon have commented on whether he’ll appear in the next Bond movie, which will be the somewhat historic 25th in the series.
