Daniel Craig has reportedly signed up to star in not one but two more films in the long-running Bond franchise according to British tabloid The Sun.
A source for the paper claims producer Barbara Broccoli convinced the actor to come back for two more outings, the first of which being the previously announced November 2019 film:
“There was plenty of talk about who would be the next Bond but Barbara has managed to talk Daniel into two more films. He is loved by audiences around the world and has driven a real resurgence for the movies at the box office, so bosses knew they couldn’t lose him just yet.”
The tabloid also claims that the second of the films could be a remake of the iconic Bond classic “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” in which Bond gets married – albeit for a notably short period of time.
Directors Denis Villeneuve, David Mackenzie and Yann Demange have all been rumored as potential helmers of the project in recent weeks with Demange the likeliest candidate.
However last week saw a report in rival tabloid The Mirror saying the next film will be titled “Shatterhand” and will use Raymond Benson’s 2001 novel “Never Dream of Dying” as its basis – a claim Benson has since categorically denied on social media.
