Daniel Craig says, “Spectre” might be his last James Bond film. Read on for more details.
After portraying Agent 007 in four movies, Craig is now ready to give the famous character a final bow. He is now ready to pass his gun to other actor and portray his well-known James Bond character.
In his interview with Esquire, the 47-year-old actor admitted to the magazine that he is not sure whether he would accept another script from the movie franchise after his upcoming movie “Spectre” that is set to be released two months from now, but if he were to ask this time, he would possibly say no—he’s done with Bond.
Adding on, Craig said that he honestly can’t imagine playing as Agent 007 at the moment.
Meanwhile, when he was asked if he’s open on doing just one more Bond movie before he leave the franchise Craig honestly answered that at this very moment, he would still say no to it before adding: “I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.”
Moreover, Screen Rant stated that at this point, since there’re no accurate details about the next James Bond film, there’s no pressure for Daniel Craig to confirm anything about whether he’ll return or not.
On the other hand, it’s not new to have speculations about who will be the next Agent 007. There’re numbers of actors who’s been connected with this issue and one of them was Idris Elba.
The 42-year-old actor who’s best-known for his portrayal as Russell “Stringer” Bell in “The Wire” have been rumored to be the next Bond for years, and if ever Craig decided to leave the role, he might be one of the actors who’s in line to take over his position.
However, writer Anthony Horowitz, who’s assigned to pen the next novel, “Trigger Mortis,” wasn’t thrilled about the rumor.
In his interview with Mail Online, Horowitz said that he preferred the British actor Adrian Lester than to Elba, adding that Elba was “too street” for James Bond.
Horowitz comment made many social media users to react. In return, the writer posted an official message about his recent comment on his Twitter account.
