He may have said the same thing after Skyfall, but Sam Mendes has made it clear that he won’t return to take the helm of the next James Bond movie. Daniel Craig meanwhile also appeared to have little to no interest in reprising the role, at one point going so far as to say that
Since then, there have been conflicting reports both about the possibility of Craig’s return and other actors taking over as 007. Nothing official has been announced though, and the Spectre star now seems to have changed his tune when it comes to his future as the spy.
“They say that shit sticks, and that definitely stuck,” Craig said of his wrist slashing remarks. “It was the day after filming [stopped on ‘Spectre’]. I’d been away from home for a year. Boo-hoo. It’s a good gig. I enjoy it.” Adding that “no conversations” have taken place in regards to the next movie, the actor added that he’s definitely open to coming back.
“As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world,” Craig stated. “I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it. If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”
Could that change of heart have something to do with reports of him being offered huge money to return as James Bond? Who knows, but here’s hoping we hear somethings soon.
