According to The Hollywood Reporter and Obsessed With Film, Daniel Craig is contracted for four more Bond films. MGM chairman and CEO Harry Sloan added that franchises are “the base of any studio”. Which in other terms means they make them the most money. Adding more films to the Bond franchise is a good move, especially with Daniel Craig playing the lead.
Casino Royal gave the franchise a much needed jolt, I mean Die Another Day wasn’t bad, it was just that they thought they needed to top the previous film in terms of gadgets, action and effects, but it just made things a lot more unbelievable. Invisible car? Surfing a huge wave of ice?
If Daniel does complete all the films in his contract he will be one behind Sean Connery and two behind Roger Moore, and will probably make him ‘the’ James Bond for a whole new generation. No doubt the franchise will need another jolt in 7 years time, maybe we will get a 3D view of that iconic gun barrel, but until then we can just wait and hopefully, enjoy.
