Daniel Craig is reportedly being paid $25 million for his services on James Bond 25. While there are a great many of uncertainties in regards to the upcoming entry in the long-running franchise, it's certain that the actor is going to be taking home a massive paycheck for his final go as the iconic MI6 spy. This also makes him the highest-paid actor for a single movie in Hollywood right now, according to a new report that reveals what actors and actresses are commanding for their biggest movies. The age of the movie star is largely dead, as moviegoers are much more concerned with franchises they care about and quality movies, as opposed to turning up to see a particular star. In the case of James Bond 25, that changes a lot. Daniel Craig's 007 is truly beloved and people want to see him go out on top. Not only that, but the actor famously said he would rather slash his wrists rather than do another Bond movie after Spectre. So the studio is having to put up some major money, to the … [Read more...] about Daniel Craig Scores Huge $25M Payday for James Bond 25?

DANIEL Craig won’t have to worry about baby sick staining his James Bond tuxedo just yet. I can reveal that filming for Bond 25, the latest instalment of the 007 franchise, was due to start this autumn but has been put back to later next year as the lead man’s wife Rachel Weisz gives birth to their first child together. Director Danny Boyle will now have more time to complete his other new project, a Beatles-inspired film with writer Richard Curtis. A film source said: “Pushing back the schedules suits all parties. “Daniel can concentrate on matters at home with Rachel, which are pretty life-changing, to say the least. “And Danny can now afford to add the finishing touches to his latest project without the prospect of a clash with a monster project like James Bond.” Oscar-winner Rachel revealed she was pregnant earlier this month and admitted this week she has been “feeling very dodgy for about four months”. She also has an 11-year-old … [Read more...] about New James Bond film’s release date delayed for Daniel Craig to help pregnant wife Rachel Weisz
NAOMIE Harris has revealed she would "love" to return to the James Bond franchise as Eve Moneypenny - but has no idea what is happening with the next film. The British actress has played the iconic character in two movies - Skyfall and Spectre - alongside Daniel Craig as 007.

Daniel Craig is ready to step back into the tux and pick up his Walther PPK, as the actor has confirmed that James Bond 25 is his next project. Craig's tenure as Bond has been a bit of an up and down affair, with mega highs such as Casino Royale and Skyfall, and mega lows such as Quantum of Solace. But he's got one more shot to go out on top with James Bond 25. So, after a lot of time speculating about this movie, maybe we can actually start understanding what it's actually going to be sooner rather than later. The 50-year-old actor confirmed that the upcoming James Bond movie, his fifth, is going to be his next project during a very brief red carpet interview recently at a charity auction. Craig donated his Aston Martin to be auctioned off. Since the interview was so brief, he didn't sound overly enthused and didn't have time to dish any more details on the movie. However, he was also asked about Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) possibly directing, which is in the cards. But Craig … [Read more...] about James Bond 25 Is Daniel Craig’s Next Movie
