"Craig is already under contract for another turn as the gentleman spy"
Chill out, internet.
I think he'll do one more after his contract is up. Especially if he gets a director he likes and it's not a repeat of the Quantum of Solace script filming experience. And just plan on taking three years between films now. Imagine how much better QoS would be in 2009 with an extra year of creative preparation.
Three key words stand out, both in this interview and one a few weeks ago in which Daniel Craig expressed similar "I want out" views about Bond;
At. The. Moment.
He's come off a long filming schedule, during which, don't forget, he was injured. The premiere is coming up, and then the promotional tours. In Craig's shoes "at the moment", I'm not sure any of us would want to jump straight back in to playing Bond after all this. He'll need a break. Any of us would.
Craig's recent interviews seem conflicted, the one constant being some rather salty-tongued ways of expressing himself! One week he's up for the next movie, the next never in a million years. Perhaps it just depended on the mood he was in when interviewed.
He'll do Bond "for the money". Of course - in the end all his predecessors did, at least in part and at times in the end for no other reason - remember that special clause Connery had about two non-Bond films of his own choosing and money to a Scottish educational trusr which lured him back for DAF?
No one can know for certain, save Daniel Craig himself and the producers and the studio chiefs, but at the moment I'd guess he'll be back for that fifth and final Bond film in 2017 or 2018, especially if SPECTRE's storyline leads naturally into the next film - it might seem like unfinished business not to see it through. Plus, he's a co-producer of Bond, for the moment - why walk away from that?
