Skyfall will be exploding into cinemas in a matter of weeks and there could be more good news for fans of Daniel Craig’s Bond, with the fansite MI6 (opens in new tab) reporting that the star has signed on for a further two films.
The site claims that Craig is already contracted to appear in Bond 24 and Bond 25, which would bring him up to five films in total. That would see him become the third longest-serving Bond, behind Roger Moore and Sean Connery on seven each.
Craig has often suggested that he intends to stick with the role as a long-term thing, and clearly takes the responsibility of portraying 007 very seriously.
“Bond movies live or die on their popularity,” he told Esquire earlier this year. “They force you to care about what people think. And I’m involved [ in the films ] on a very deep level. I have it in my mind all the time.”
From the sounds of things, he’ll have international terrorists and impossibly glamourous women running around his brain for a good while to come. In the shorter term, Skyfall opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.
