Looks like Daniel Craig will be drinking that martini shaken not stirred for a couple more films. Or, er, it’s Heineken now, I guess. (Or whatever alcoholic beverage the producers sell out Her Majesty’s top spy to by the time the next movie rolls around. Bond’s gotta have his drinks. After all, after a hard day of killing for God and Country, a nice cold one always helps to ease into the night.)
Anyhoo. With “Skyfall”, Daniel Craig’s third outing as Bond coming up this November, it appears the actor is officially signed on for two more films, making it five in all. Of course, other actors who have played Bond were signed on for multiple films, too, but not all of them ended up fulfilling their contracts. (Sean Connery and Timothy Dalton both left a film short.)
Unlike previous Bond actors, it’s taken Craig six years to make three Bond movies, starting with 2006’s “Casino Royale” and continuing on with “Quantum of Solace”. If he fulfills his entire five-movie contract and doesn’t renew for whatever reason, it would make Craig the third longest-serving Bond, behind Sean Connery (six) and Roger Moore, who holds the title with seven outings. Pierce Brosnan, the Bond before Craig, made four movies, while Timothy Dalton could only survive two. George Lazenby, of course, only managed one, 1969’s “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service”.
“Skyfall” opens November 9, 2012.
