Daniel Craig has rejected a mouth watering £68million offer from MGM studio to return as James 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.
