He once said he would rather take his own life than reprise his role as 007. But Daniel Craig may now be regretting his words, as he has confirmed he will, for one final time, play James Bond.
Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on US TV on Tuesday night, the actor finally put an end to the long-running saga of will he/won’t he play the character for a fifth time.
“I have been quite cagey about it. I have been doing interviews all day and people have been asking me and I think I’ve been rather coy. But kind of felt like if I was going to speak the truth I should speak truth to you.”
Asked by Colbert directly whether he could deliver some “good news” about returning as Bond, Craig finally replied: “Yes.”
He revealed he had known for a “couple of months”, adding: “We’ve been discussing it, we’ve just been trying to figure things out. I always wanted to, I needed a break.” – The Guardian
When you see Craig’s James Bond paycheck
Daniel Craig, you sneaky minx. Imagine having a job that you publicly hate, and instead of getting fired your boss offers you $135 MILLION to keep doing it? Only in movies, man.
It is the source of much speculation of how much the film studios will have promised Craig to tempt him back. He was rumoured to have been paid $65m (£48.66m) for Spectre, and in 2016 it was reported he had been offered $150m to shoot two more Bond films, almost back to back.
I’m a big fan of Craig’s Bond movies (he’s no Sean Connery, Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan, but then again, who is?) but knowing he’s making this much money might take me out of the films completely. All I’ll be thinking of when I watch future Bond movies that he’s in is that this guy is getting paid over 9 figures to wear a tuxedo, have sex with hot women and drive fancy cars. It’s hard to hate on Craig, though. Pretty magical game plan. Everybody knows that the forbidden fruit is the best tasting fruit. The movie studios wanting Craig but knowing he was the only man they couldn’t get drove them nuts. Now he’s getting paid monopoly money to play James Bond. Daniel Craig is the master and ruler of the world this week.
This week’s Movie Club pick is ‘Defiance.’ Next week’s movie will be ‘The BFG.’ Call 401-285-8120 to leave us a voicemail with a comment, question, or observation and we will play it on an episode.
There are many things that I’m a sucker for when it comes to movie trailers, and A Wrinkle In Time hit the big ones. Chris Pine? Check. A sweet cover song? Show me a more sinister cover of Sweet Dreams than the one in the trailer and I’ll show you a liar. Visual effects that suck you in? Triple check. Plus, anytime you can develop a popular science fiction novel with a 9 figure movie budget, it’s always going to look wonderful. Now, will the story will be as wonderful as the visual aspects? We’ll have to wait and see, but the cast is stacked (the aforementioned Pine, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Pena & Oprah no known last name). I think the key for this movie, and most science fictions adaptations, is to stay as far away from the reviews as possible. You’re going to have to expand your mind to begin with, so basing your opinion off of someone else’s reaction would be a big mistake. A Wrinkle In Time opens March 9th, 2018.
