Daniel Craig Signs On For Two More JAMES BOND Films

Skyfall (coming to theaters later this year) will be Daniel Craig's third outing as James Bond, but the actor has now signed on to star in two more films in the long running franchise. Hit the jump for more details on Craig's new contract.

By Paul Romano - 9/6/2012


MI6 reports that Daniel Craig (who has previously played James Bond in 2006's Casino Royale, 2008's Quantum Of Solace, and this year's Skyfall) has signed on to star in two more 007 movies. The two movies would serve as the 24th and 25th Bond movies, respectively. Sony Pictures are set to continue their relationship with MGM with the next movie in EON Productions' long running franchise. A late 2014 release for Craig's next outing as Bond has been suggested. However, EON prefer a longer break in between James Bond films. Additionally, Craig has said that he's not taking on any more film work until the new year, when press for Skyfall is finished.

A total of five James Bond films would make Craig the third longest running actor in the role, following Sean Connery and Roger Moore. You can next see Craig as 007 in Skyfall, which will be released November 9th in the US and October 26th in the UK.

ADomenick91092 - 9/6/2012, 10:26 AM
Hell yeah! Daniel Craig is my favorite Bond since Connery, so I'm glad to see him sticking around for at least 2 more films after Skyfall.

@RedRage: Unless you count Never Say Never Again (which would bring Connery up to 7 Bond movies) Roger Moore is in the lead with 7: Live and Let Die (1973); The Man with the Golden Gun (1974); The Spy Who Loved Me (1977); Moonraker (1979); For Your Eyes Only (1981); Octopussy (1983); and A View to a Kill (1985).

i swear he signed for more ages ago anyway?
MisterNiceGuy - 9/6/2012, 10:36 AM
Good. I like his bond. Not as flamboyant as the others
TopCat89 - 9/6/2012, 10:37 AM
I was wandering if James Bond may actually die in this film, thinking it would be Craig's last bond movie....guess this answers my question.

Now when i see it, when Bond gets into a difficult situation, i'll be thinking....meh he'll be fine.
TopCat89 - 9/6/2012, 10:38 AM
Would of preferred this announcement a few weeks after release!
Ha1frican - 9/6/2012, 10:38 AM
Good love him as bond.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/6/2012, 10:42 AM
Good news
Maximus101 - 9/6/2012, 10:49 AM
Ya the more realistic take he does on bond is wayyyy better, I like the old bond actors but the movies are laughable.
soberchimera - 9/6/2012, 10:50 AM
Good, I just hope there's continuity like in the early Bond films. I would love to see modern versions of SPECTRE(not that Quantum crap) and Blofeld.
AsianVersionOfET - 9/6/2012, 10:52 AM
Good! Don't fix what's not broken.
OdinsBeard - 9/6/2012, 10:53 AM
would love to see an "ending" to the james bond mythos.
Jobling - 9/6/2012, 11:05 AM
I was hoping that this was his last for Cavill being the next bond...
JayTopStix - 9/6/2012, 11:10 AM
This is a good example of a toned down character more grounded in reality because you know, he's real. Nolan's Batman however is awful because he is caped superheroe from comic books. Batman is an awful comic book adaptation, still a great movie but not a good CMB
RobJigga - 9/6/2012, 11:11 AM
who did the new theme song?
Zordan - 9/6/2012, 11:13 AM
never liked him, bring new actor. charismatic one.
CrowPirate1 - 9/6/2012, 11:42 AM
I want the Music to be played more in the new ones....

I just miss it.. it wasn't in the first two of his much at all!!

IN fact... he is a good Bond.. but the first one didn't feel like a Bond film, (except for the great start).... you know?

I don't want gadgets galore... Some of them go toooooo silly.. (Moonraker anyone?)

but.. the music is just cool for me still...
angus666 - 9/6/2012, 11:44 AM
Good.
rea1dea1stee1 - 9/6/2012, 11:57 AM
i like his bond but i think colin farrell would make a good bond
thewonderer - 9/6/2012, 12:05 PM
What about Fassbender!!!
Karmatron - 9/6/2012, 12:11 PM

The Dark Knight Rises is the worse movie ever, and Nolan is so bad that Uwe Boll is like Spielberg compared to him.

Also whoever dares to say they liked TDKR is a pathetic loser and should never be alouded to get into any comicbook related web page.

Saved you the time to all of you guys who always bring from the blue your hate for everything Nolan related even if it makes no sense at all ; )
PeterParker1991 - 9/6/2012, 12:14 PM
Nice. He's a good bond. @Nomis: Yes. I can definitely see it, though I still prefer him as Magneto
TheDesertGorilla - 9/6/2012, 12:17 PM
I think Matthew McConaughey would make a great Bond!
Coolkid - 9/6/2012, 12:28 PM
Bale for bond with Nolan directing it....!!!
GrayMatter - 9/6/2012, 12:29 PM
I just hope that Skyfall functions as its own movie. Quantum of Solace was absolute garbage unless you watched it and Casino Royale back-to-back.
GingerBird - 9/6/2012, 12:30 PM
Next bond film: directed by Christopher Nolan. SOOOOO GOOOOOOD!!!!
First Bond film nominated for best picture Oscar????
Karmatron - 9/6/2012, 12:41 PM
@GingerBird: you nailed it man! lol :)
BooYah - 9/6/2012, 1:02 PM
He's not my favorite Bond but I liked both of his movies so good news for me.
Rowsdower - 9/6/2012, 1:02 PM
Oh God No

Please stop.
RobLiefeldFan - 9/6/2012, 2:14 PM
@fettastic hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahaha I can totally see the resemblance
jimoakley666 - 9/6/2012, 2:23 PM
Best news I've heard this year.

@fettastic - That's some strong weed you're smoking, kid.
TheReddestHood - 9/6/2012, 2:41 PM
After him Michael Fassbender should be Bond and Chris Nolan should direct
CapistheMan - 9/6/2012, 2:52 PM
Let's get Henry Cavill in that tux and Chris Nolan behind the camera!
JorL5150 - 9/6/2012, 3:02 PM
connery did a 7th:

"never say never again"

also- there were TWO "casino royale"('s) BEFORE craig.

just fyi.
nowtheresaBATman - 9/6/2012, 5:20 PM
@CapistheMan Exactly what I'm thinking- Cavill & Nolan FTW!
lokibane2012 - 9/6/2012, 8:59 PM
[frick] yes!
Jolt17 - 9/7/2012, 1:51 AM
Great. He's my favorite Bond, so far.

I'd love to see Henry Cavill taking up the role in the 26th Bond movie, though...I've grown tired of seeing Fassbender being picked for anyone. :P But, really; I've always favored Cavill over any other possible candidates for Bond.
