Daniel Craig to bank $60 million for Spectre

Daniel CraigDaniel Craig, 47, is set to bank $60 million for Spectre.

The actor has starred as James Bond for nine years and will secure his place as the highest paid Bond actor following the release of the 2015 film.

A source told The Sun: ”Daniel’s deal means he’ll bank $24 million for acting, around $6 million for endorsements and $30 million if the financial projections are on course. Even taking inflation into account he is by far the highest paid Bond actor.”

Meanwhile, Daniel recently insisted he wanted to ”move on” from the franchise but would consider staying for another film for money’s sake.

He said: ”I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on. For at least a year or two, I just don’t want to think about it. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money. Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. I don’t know what the next step is. I’ve no idea.”

The Hollywood hunk also offered advice to his successor.

He added: ”Don’t listen to anybody else. Well, do listen to everybody, but you have to make the choice at the end of the day. It’s your bed to lie on. You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this any more. This is really rare now.”

    I’m all for free enterprise and I love Daniel Craig, but I don’t appreciate his whining about doing the role that clearly made him wealthy. I realize we all need to move on in life, but it’s not cricket to bite the hand that feeds you.
