Daniel Craig on Spectre fears, James Bond future

7 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The pressures of following Skyfall were "massive" says Daniel Craig, and he's not committing to a further 007 film post-Spectre right now.

There is language of a fruity nature in this piece.

The 24th James Bond movie adventure, Spectre, arrives in cinemas at the end of next month, and as such, the next stage of the film's promotional campaign is cranking into gear. As part of that, Daniel Craig has given a new interview to Esquire, where he's chatted about the part of James Bond, and specifically, how all concerned went about following the gigantic success of Skyfall (the first Bond movie to break the $1bn barrier at the box office).

"I think everyone was just daunted, understandably", Craig said. "Like, it's the biggest British movie of all time. What does it fucking mean? Where do we go from there? How do you process that? It could have been an albatross around everyone's necks. »

Is 'Spectre' Daniel Craig's Final James Bond Movie?

16 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It may be hard to believe, but Daniel Craig has been playing James Bond for almost 10 years, starting with Casino Royale in 2006. As he readies himself for the release of his latest 007 adventure, with Spectre hitting theaters worldwide this November, he's taking some time out to reflect back on this secret agent he's played in four movies, which also include 2008's Quantum of Solace and 2012's Skyfall. Speaking with Esquire, he calls Bond out for being sexist, and hopes his portrayal has helped to curb that notion. He also doesn't think he could spend much time with the character, heavily hinting that his days as James Bond are numbered.

"Hopefully my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as [earlier incarnations]. The world has changed. I am certainly not that person.&#160But he is, and so what does that mean? It means you cast great actresses and make the parts as good »

Azealia Banks weighs in on Idris Elba as 007 debate: "Once Bond goes black, he can't go back"

18 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Azealia Banks has some very strong opinions on why Idris Elba will never become James Bond.

Perennial 007 contender Elba was thrust into yet another public debate this week, when Bond writer Anthony Horowitz said he is "too street" to play the "suave" spy.

Horowitz has already apologised for causing "offence", although debate about Elba's possible future as 007 rages on.

Never one to shy away from controversy, Azealia Banks offered her own thoughts on why Elba has been passed over for Bond on Twitter.

"Idris is too much man to play bond anyway. If idris is the next bond then all the bonds after that have to be sexy and Ultra Masculine," she wrote initially

Idris is too much man to play bond anyway. If idris is the next bond then all the bonds after that have to be sexy and Ultra Masculine.

Daniel Craig hints at 007 retirement after Spectre, Bond author says Idris Elba is “too street” for the role

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in 2012 it was reported that Daniel Craig had signed a two-film extension to his 007 contract following Skyfall, but now it seems he may be looking to retire his license to kill following this year’s Spectre.

Speaking to Esquire, Craig was asked if he plans to return as James Bond following the spy’s 24th adventure, replying that: “I really don’t know. Honestly. I’m not trying to be coy. At the moment I can’t even conceive it…At this moment, no. I have a life and I’ve got to get on with it a bit. But we’ll see.”

James Bond author Anthony Horowitz is sorry for calling Idris Elba "too street" to play 007: "I am mortified"

19 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Bond author Anthony Horowitz has publicly apologised for saying that Idris Elba is "too street" to play 007.

The writer of new Bond novel Trigger Mortis came under fire this week for expressing his opinion that oft-rumoured 007 contender Elba is wrong for the franchise.

"It's not a colour issue. I think he is probably a bit too 'street' for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah," he was quoted as saying.

As debate around his comments continues to swirl, Horowitz issued a statement on Twitter to insist that he is "mortified to have caused offence".

"I'm really sorry my comments about Idris Elba have caused offence. That wasn't my intention," he wrote.

"I was asked in my interview if Idris Elba would make a good James Bond. In the article, I expressed the opinion that to my mind Adrian Lester would be a better choice, but I'm a writer, »

Idris Elba ‘Too Street’ to Play James Bond, 007 Author Says

21 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Updated: Although a fan and studio favorite to play James Bond, 007 author Anthony Horowitz thinks Variety cover star Idris Elba is “too street” for the role — remarks that touched off a social media furor that centered largely on race.

The English novelist, whose latest book in the Bond series, “Trigger Mortis,” hits stores on Sept. 8, told the Daily Mail that the actor is simply not suave enough to succeed Daniel Craig.

Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better,” he said. “For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”

Horowitz released a statement on Twitter late Monday morning to apologize for his comments.

Daniel Craig Confident Spectre Can Top Skyfall As Actor Discusses Leaving Bond Franchise

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Touting a box office total of $1.1 billion – a franchise high, no less – and scores of positive reviews, Skyfall is going to difficult act to follow. Director Sam Mendes will attempt such a feat later this year though when the Oscar-winner returns to the spy franchise to helm its anticipated successor, Spectre.

It’s no secret that Mendes was hesitant about directing this year’s thriller in fear that lightning wouldn’t strike twice. It’s a feeling that Daniel Craig himself empathized with, too, with the 00 agent revealing that the cast and crew faced a “massive amount of pressure” before the cameras began rolling.

More News From The Web

Speaking with Esquire, the British actor was refreshingly frank in his deduction of Spectre, what it has to do to escape the enormous shadow of Skyfall, and why fans of the classic James Bond can look forward to Mendes’ new entry in this most prestigious series. »

New Spectre Stills; Daniel Craig Says His 'Bond' "Not As Sexist" As Previous Ones

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In addition to the stills, we have some quotes from Daniel Craig's recent interview with Esquire Magazine. Word round the campfire is that this might well be Craig's last time in the role of 007, and when asked this outright the actor takes a neutral stance... but doesn't debunk it.  “I really don’t know," he says. "Honestly. I’m not trying to be coy. At the moment I can’t even conceive it.” Craig also comments on this more modern take on the notoriously cold, womanising superspy. “Hopefully, my Bond is not as sexist and misogynistic as [earlier incarnations]. The world has changed. I am certainly not that person. But he is, and so what does that mean? It means you cast great actresses and make the parts as good as you can for the women in the movies.” We won't mention the "waste of good scotch" scene from Skyfall, then. »

James Bond Author Says Idris Elba Is "Too Street" To Play 007, And Bond Is "Weak" In 'Skyfall'

22 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The James Bond franchise has been remarkably enduring. There are few franchises outside of "Star Wars" — and even that series took very long breaks — that have lasted for decades, and at the moment, the property is more valuable than it has even been. "Skyfall" broke the billion dollar mark — the first time for a Bond movie ever — and expectations are very high for the upcoming "Spectre." And so, you would think that Ian Fleming's estate, in choosing writer Anthony Horowitz to pen the next official Bond book "Trigger Mortis" (lol), might've given him a crash course in media relations, because his chat with the Daily Mail is earning the wrong kind of attention. While Daniel Craig's future as 007 beyond "Spectre" seems uncertain (more on that in a second), there has already been much speculation and advocacy for Idris Elba to be the next actor to take on the iconic secret agent role. »

Daniel Craig May Not Do Another Bond?

23 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The publicity train for the new James Bond film "Spectre" has begun with Daniel Craig having begun the first long-lead interviews for the film ahead of its release. In a lengthy piece for Esquire, he reveals that director Sam Mendes will be all finished making the film (ie. locking it) next week.

Craig says that after the billion dollar success of "Skyfall," everyone involved in the franchise wasn't quite sure what to do:

"I think everyone was just daunted, understandably. Like, it's 'the biggest British movie of all time'. What does it f--king mean? Where do we go from there? How do you process that? It could have been an albatross around everyone's necks. It turned out not to be, but there was a massive amount of pressure at the beginning."

Originally the plan was to do a more flamboyant and confident Bond, something more akin to the classic super »

Idris Elba Too "Street" For James Bond?

23 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Not long ago Ian Fleming's estate handpicked Anthony Horowitz to pen "Trigger Mortis," the next official book in the James Bond literary series. Horowitz has been recently doing interviews about the work, which comes two months ahead of the release of the next Bond film "Spectre," and his comments to The Daily Mail have raised some eyebrows.

Craig's future with the Bond franchise is uncertain for now, and people being people have already begun speculating about who might take over the role in the next few years.

"Luther" star Idris Elba has long been the subject of rumors, the actor himself having already said he's pretty much given up on the possibility. Horowitz however is not a fan of that choice:

"Idris Elba is a terrific actor, but I can think of other black actors who would do it better. For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. »

Is Spectre the last Bond for Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes? 'There's a rightness to this being the last one'

1 September 2015 5:58 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Daniel Craig and Sam Mendes have opened up about their Bond future - by failing to confirm a return to the franchise.

In an interview with Total Film, the leading man and Skyfall director got candid about their post-Spectre plans.

Best and worst Bond themes ranked: Which are classics and which need their 00 status revoked?

"Look, never say never," said Mendes on his future with Bond. "I've always discovered that the hard way by saying no and then changing my mind.

"But I think there's a rightness to this [being the last] for me, because it feels like two parts - not of a story exactly, but two parts of a whole."

007 contenders for Spectre's theme song: Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Adele and the rest

Craig - who has played Bond four times since his debut in Casino Royale - also hinted that Spectre may be his last outing in the title role. »

James Bond author Anthony Horowitz dislikes Skyfall: 'He's weak - that's not Bond'

31 August 2015 5:53 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Author Anthony Horowitz has slated the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall, saying it makes him "angry".

Horowitz, who is currently writing the James Bond novel Trigger Mortis, picked apart the film's plot in a recent interview reported by The Mail.

Pussy Galore is back in the new James Bond book Trigger Mortis

While the author called Daniel Craig a "terrific" actor, and made it clear that he liked the "gritty" 2006 film Casino Royale, he said that he didn't care for either Quantum of Solace or Skyfall.

Horowitz said: "Quantum of Solace just went wrong. Skyfall is my least favourite. I know it is heresy to say so, but it is the one Bond film I have never liked."

Criticising the film, he went on to say: "Bond is weak in it. He has doubts. That's not Bond."

He added: "Secondly, the villain wins. The villain sets out to kill M. The »
