Discussing about the next James Bond movie after 'Quantum of Solace', Daniel Craig reveals on what he hopes to explore in 'Bond 23'.
The next James Bond movie won't be a continuation of "Quantum of Solace" or so claimed two-time Bond depicter, Daniel Craig. Addressing the future of James Bond movie, Craig slammed down the speculation that "Bond 23" would be part of a trilogy. "No fucking way," he said to Collider at "Defiance" press day. "I'm done with that story. I want to lie on a beach for the first half an hour of the next movie drinking a cocktail."
Explaining further, the 40-year-old actor insisted, "We've finished this story as far as I'm concerned. We've got a great set of bad guys. There is an organization that we can use whenever we want to. The relationship between Bond and M is secure and Felix is secure." He then added on where he would like to see the franchise is moving on, stating, "Let's try and find where Moneypenny came from and where Q comes from. Let's do all that and have some fun with it."
Asked about what he knows on the plan for the next Bond movie, the "The Golden Compass" actor said, "We don't know when we're going to do the next Bond. Nobody's thinking about it at the moment. We're giving it a rest for the moment." On his future plan with other movie, he commented, "If I can squeeze something in next year I will...but I haven't figured out what that'll be yet. But nothing in the cold."
Produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and directed by Marc Forster, "Quantum of Solace" continues the James Bond story from where "Casino Royale" is left off. It is supported by a slew of other actors, including Olga Kurylenko, Mathieu Amalric and Gemma Arterton. Upon its November 14 U.S. release, the action movie has debuted atop box office chart with $67.5 million. Up to date, it has grossed as much as $509.3 million worldwide.
