Daniel said playing James Bond was “a drag” and that the franchise had run “dry” creatively. What a way to sell a film! He explained:
I was contracted to do another one. That was all set up. But at the studio there was a real keenness to get it done as soon as possible. In fact, there was a conversation at one point that went: ‘Let’s film two movies back to back.’ I just went: ‘You’re out of your f—— minds.’ In the nicest possible way.”
Given all the action sequences in the James Bond movies, I can understand where an actor would want a bit of a break. The problem, of course, is that the audience just wants more, and they want it Right Now.
When asked if he was willing to be 007 again, Daniel said:
Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. 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.”
However, there is a, well, compelling reason for him to do another one.
If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.”
You can’t say Daniel isn’t honest- LOL. Clearly he is OVER starring in this franchise. Well, I’m ready for Idris Elba to become the next James Bond anyway. Who’s with me?
