It has been announced that Daniel Craig has signed on for two more James Bond films, a number which (if made) would bring his total to five films – one more than Pierce Brosnan – making him the third longest serving Bond behind Roger Moore (7) and Sean Connery (6 official and Never Say Never Again).
Craig may be contracted, but that doesn’t mean that he will make those movies. Pierce Brosnan was asked back for a fifth film after 2002’s Die Another Day, before the idea as scrapped and the franchise was rebooted, bringing in Craig (and negative publicity) for 2006’s Casino Royale.
If the movies are made then it does mean that Craig could potentially be playing Bond into his 50s.
Skyfall opens in October.
