After All That Bloody Drama, Daniel Craig Is Reportedly Down For More Bond

It only took a year of um-ing and ah-ing, but Bond star Daniel Craig seems to have finally signed on for another on-screen turn as Britain’s #1 consumer of exploding Aston Martins.

According to The Mirror, the 49-year-old has agreed to star in his fifth 007 flick. That’s notable, because until quite recently, old mate was vocal about how much he was through with the franchise – going as far to say he’d rather “rather slash my wrists” than don the suit again.
At the time, he also said “I don’t know what the next step is. I’ve no idea. Not because I’m trying to be cagey. Who the fuck knows?

“At the moment, we’ve done it. I’m not in discussion with anybody about anything. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.”
It would be a fair chunk of change, too. The Mirror claims discussions about his remuneration have included figures as stupid as $200M for two more films. Look, Daniel, if you want to put your feet up, we’ll fill in for you. 
Perhaps due to that absurd paypacket, the paper’s source claims there’s a “strong consensus” that Craig will be back for the project. Notably, Adele – another Bond alum, cheers to her powerful theme tune for Skyfall – is also said to be back on deck.
Here’s a thought to save some cash: hire an unknown to play the spy, and just reappropriate the woozy, unused theme tune Radiohead crafted for Spectre. Problem solved – and it didn’t even require giant lasers, or a rope swung directly into someone’s balls.
