If you ask me, Daniel Craig is the best James Bond ever, but I’ll admit the scripts of his 007 movies might have helped out with that, especially when compared with the older movies. However, the actor, who played Bond for the fourth time in Spectre, just revealed that we might need another Bond, as he’s had it with playing the immensely popular character.
Craig announced in a rather out-of-the-box manner the fact he’s had it with the franchise saying that he’d rather kill himself than do another Bond movie. I’m shaken by the news. Not stirred. Because he’s not 100% sure he’s stopping.
“Look, I don’t give a f—. Good luck to them,” Craig said answering whether he cared who plays the next Bond. “All I care about is that if I stop doing these things we’ve left it in a good place, and people pick it up and make it better.”
Craig doesn’t want to make a new 007 movie right now, he told TimeOut, but things might change in the future.
“Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists,” Craig said. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”
He also added that in case he’ll do one more Bond movie, he’ll do it only for the money.
As for the next Bond, Craig had a clear message for him: “Don’t be s—,” the actor said. “You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this anymore. This is really rare now. So don’t be s—.”
