Daniel Craig is being paid $25m for next James Bond movie after previously saying ‘he’d rather slit his wrists than return’
Actor, Daniel Craig, 50, is expected to receive $25million (9,012,499,120.65) for his return to the role of James Bond in the upcoming “Bond 25” film
According to Variety, the British actor who previously revealed he would ‘rather slash his wrists than return to the popular spy franchise’ has been lured back into the role with the massive paycheck.
Daniel who kicked off his Bond career in 2006’s Casino Royale, told Time Out magazine in 2015: ‘I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists… We’re done. All I want to do is move on.’
Asked if he meant for good, he told the magazine: ‘For at least a year or two… If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.’
But in August 2017 interview with Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show”, Craig confirmed that he would return to the franchise for a fifth film.
His return will mark his fifth and last appearance as Bond when the untitled 25th Bond film hits movie screens on November 8, 2019.
