Craig Signed For Four More Bond Films

Daniel Craig, who made a splash in his debut performance as James Bond in last year’s franchise reboot Casino Royale, has been signed to star in another four outings as the British spy.

The story was buried in a Hollywood Reporter story covering MGM Studios honcho Harry Sloan’s speech at Thursday’s Forbes MEET II met conference in Beverly Hills, a throw away reference in a paragraph were Sloan emphasizes the importance of franchise building in his strategy for the studio.

Craig’s original contract for the Bond franchise called for him to appear in three films, last year’s Casino Royale being the first. MGM has apparently renegotiated his original contract in the wake of the success of Casino Royale, for a total of five films.

Currently the untitled follow-up to Casino Royale is being prepared to go in front of the cameras next month for release in November 2008.
