Actor Daniel Craig has denied reports he has signed a $67 million deal tying him to the James Bond franchise for a further four films. Reports surfaced last month, claiming Craig had accepted an offer by film studio MGM to stay in the role for the next 10 years. But the blond 39-year-old insists the reports are grossly exaggerated, and he has so far only committed to one more film in the spy franchise. He says, "It's not that it's not true, but I haven't signed up on that level. I've signed for the next movie and after that we'll see. That's the way I'm doing it and it's certainly not formal." Craig is currently filming Bond 22 - his second outing as secret agent 007 following the success of 2006's Casino Royale. His predecessor, Pierce Brosnan, starred in four Bond movies - but Sir Roger Moore remains the longest-serving 007 star, having played the iconic role in seven films between 1973 and 1985.
