Daniel Craig Has Been Offered More Than £100 Million To Return As Bond

If rumours are to be believed, that is...​

After apparently turning down £68 million to reprise his role as Bond a couple of months back, Sony has returned to the table to offer Daniel Craig the outlandish sum of $150m (£113m) to bring back his personal brand of squinty, moody 007.

According to a source close to Radar ,"the studio is desperate to secure the actor's services while they phase in a younger long-term successor."

So far Craig has starred in four Bond's, with his 2012 turn in Skyfall the highest grossing film in the franchise's history. 

The ever-reliable source then said: "They will shoot two more films, which will be made virtually back-to-back, preferably featuring Daniel as 007 before he passes the figurative baton to someone else for a third movie that will mark the start of the new era."
