Sony offered Daniel Craig a deal of around USD 200 Million

With four James Bond movies under his belt, it seemed that Daniel Craig had bowed out from the iconic role following last year's hit 'Spectre'. The star had infamously announced that he'd "rather break his glass and slash my wrists" than star in another Bond movie. But, Sony, eager to have him star in a couple more Bond films have offered him a deal he can't refuse — around USD 200 million.

The last Bond film took in USD 880 million at the box office worldwide. 'Skyfall' (2012) grossed more than a billion dollars. Craig has played Bond for the most profitable period in the history of the franchise.

"The studio is desperate to secure the actor’s services while they phase in a younger long-term successor," a source told a website, Radar.

Craig "has played a genius hand," said the source. "Everyone knows how much executives adore him, and the idea of losing him at such a crucial time in the franchise isn’t an option as far as all the studio honchos are concerned."

Recently, there were reports of new actors being auditioned for Bond — among them former child star Jamie Bell, Taylor Swift’s beau, Tom Hiddleston and the ultra-suave Idris Elba, who was supposed to become the first black Bond.
