Daniel Craig Turns Down $68 million For James Bond, Tom Hiddleton Likely Replacement

Daniel Craig has told studio bosses he is ‘done’ playing 007, sources claim.

The news comes just days after bookmakers called off bets on Cambridge-educated Tom Hiddleston becoming the next James Bond.

Craig is the highest-paid actor to play the role, netting a reported total of £38million for the four films he has appeared in.

He has played Bond since 2005 and helped bank well over £2billion in box office revenue, helping ease MGM’s bankruptcy issues.

Insiders said Craig turned down a £68million offer from MGM studio to return as Bond for two more films following last year’s hit Spectre.

The sum included endorsements, profit shares, and a role for him working as a co-producer.

One LA film source said: ‘Daniel is done – pure and simple – he told top brass at MGM after Spectre. They threw huge amounts of money at him, but it just wasn’t what he wanted.’

He added: ‘He had told people after shooting that this would be his final outing, but the film company still felt he could come around after Spectre if he was offered a money deal.’

One source said that executives had finally agreed to let the actor go after growing tired of his criticism of the franchise.

Craig, 48, told interviewers last year that he would rather ‘slash my wrists’ than agree to another Bond film.

But he later said he was contracted for a fifth film and would agree to it ‘for the money’.

Before Bond, the actor, married to actress Rachel Weisz, was best known for thriller Layer Cake, being Angelina Jolie’s love interest in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and various TV roles. Craig has been plagued with a knee injury sustained filming a Spectre fight scene.

The source said: ‘With knee problems and general exhaustion, he felt it was a journey with an ending.’ The studio delayed the next Bond film after Craig committed to a 20-episode US TV adaptation of Jonathan Franzen’s novel Purity.

    Why not, Dave Chappelle left $50 mil on the table. You have to remember that actors are really into the art of acting, (which is my a lot of them fuck with indie low budget shit.) Craig probably feels that has enough cash, he doesn't want to get type cast, and he wants to venture out and do other shit.

    I liked his version of bond, but if he doesn't wanna do it anymore then good for him

    I'd rather have someone who wants the role play the character instead of someone who's showing up just to get a paycheck

    I tried watching spectre 3 times and kept falling asleep. Tom Hiddleston tho... Pierce Brosnan, Roger Moore and Sean Connery did not die for this.

    Tom Hardy or an English black actor are the only good choices.

    Yo that's £68 million so that's like $100 million USD gooooottt DAYUM. Who am I to knock him. He made his money and owns a piece of the franchise. He produces them too , it makes no difference if he's in the next one or not because he's going to bank off it.

    He was a much rougher Bond, and I enjoyed that about his rendition of the character.

    But he always got his ass kicked

    Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit... How the fuck? I'd have them write the shit where I didn't do stunts and take the check. This shit is Toby McGuire stupid: "I don't want to be typecast!" Who the FUCK can name a Daniel Craig appearance besides side piece in Tomb Raider? I forgot that until the OP. Typecast as a dude who can fuck your bitch after murdering you, shoot down helicopters at night with a PP9, and drive the dopest cars while having an apartment that looks like a freshman's dorm room--the nerve!

    Fuck outta here.

    I'm not saying it's as stupid as Dave Chappelle's "They didn't give me any help on how to run things, and this lighting guy laughed at me during the skit--and I felt like I was a joke, so I left because a black man can't be funny without wearing a dress" excuse to be responsibility free... but it's "hard on my body" is that stupid when the company is giving you all kinds of control.

    Tom Hiddleton would have to put on a good 10 lbs I think to be convincing in the role. I guess if he becomes Bond they're going to go with a more "brain than brawn" kind of James Bond. It'd be a good counter to Craig's Bond. I think Craig's was more closer to the Bond in the books tho.

    I'm not mad at whatever they choose, Tom Hiddleton from his interviews, seems like a cool down to Earth guy.
