Daniel Craig Reportedly Offered $150 Million to Return to Bond
Rumors are swirling about the future of the James Bond franchise and who will be next to play the legendary character. Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, and Aidan Turner have all been thrown into the mix, but there are reports that Sony is desperate to get Daniel Craig back. Reports are that he has been offered $150 million to reprise his role.
Craig had previously told reporters that he was done with the franchise, saying "I'd rather slash my wrists" than join in again. But, now with this reported offer, he could stand to make more than double what he was offered before, which was $65 million. Supposedly, Sony execs are willing to do what it takes to get his to sign up.
There has been no confirmation about the offer, and Sont has yet to comment on the subject.
