From Bleedinhg Cool:Daniel Craig Reportedly Offered Five More Bond Films; Skyfall Has “Magical Goldfinger Feel”
Though they haven’t given a quote to this exact effect, and even manage one that slightly contradicts it, The People
are reporting that Wilson and his colleagues in producing the Bond series have offered Craig a deal for five more Bond films after Skyfall:
James Bond actor Daniel Craig has been offered a multi-million pound deal to become the longest serving 007 of all time…
In an exclusive interview with The People, Wilson told how he would love him to do five more.
He said: “It’s certainly something we’ll be discussing with him once we finish shooting Skyfall. Filming has gone very well so far and I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s record and do eight pictures. Daniel’s been an absolute pleasure to be around because he takes the role so seriously. There’s really no one more passionate about making these films work than him – he’s a film maker’s dream.”
Puh! Fuck that. He's good for 2 more at least, he ain't getting any younger, and he don't have a youthful looking face anyway to begin with.
I have my doubts about Craig as Bond too. Yeah he works well so far, but that's only 2 movies in. For another 6 including Skyfall he can't keep up that same serious approach going and I'm not sure Craig can lighten up and be more humourous so well, or if I want him to even do that.
Craig can be a cold fish as an actor in things I've seen him in outside of Bond and I don't think audiences can attach themselves that well to him. Maybe one reason why he hasn't been a box office success outside of Bond and is on thin ice if he can continue as a lead actor in films.
Maybe that 'cold fish' persona can work for Bond, but not sure for 6 more films, and if we're gonna explore other parts of Bondage with Daniel Craig, it better be some interesting parts of Bond that this actor can pull off well. Maybe more curious parts of him, his weaknesses, his darker side, a possible relish of his job, the action, the violence, can Craig successfully play more sympathetic sides of him? Etc. etc. etc....
Best thing about that article is it linked to a crew list at the bottom of this page that suggest they kicked out the Wankers who helped nearly ruin the last film, and got back to Casino Royale basics...http://www.bleedingcool.com/2011/11/06/ ... ood-stuff/
Not sure if that Bourne action director or whatever his job was that helped fuck up Quantum is back or not though.
