Daniel Craig hints at possible return to Bond franchise

Daniel Craig’s remarks about returning as James Bond have become rather infamous in the pop culture community. If you recall, he said that he’d rather slash his own wrists than star in another Bond film, words that both fans and producers couldn’t have loved hearing. So, when Craig took the stage at the New Yorker Festival Friday night to discuss his life and career, it wasn’t a surprise when he was asked if he’d ever play the British spy again.

Answering the question, he alluded to his original comments about slashing his wrists. “They say that shit sticks, and that definitely stuck,” he said with a laugh. “It was the day after filming [stopped on Spectre].  I’d been away from home for a year.” The physical strains of the role combined with the distance from his family take a toll, he said. Craig tried not to complain too much, though. “Boo-hoo. It’s a good gig. I enjoy it.”

But then things got very optimistic; Craig seems to be going back on those harsh comments. “As far as I’m concerned, I’ve got the best job in the world. I’ll keep doing it as long as I still get a kick out of it,” he said. Then, later: “If I were to stop doing it, I would miss it terribly.”

Even if Craig decides to return to the franchise, it might not be for a while. The actor said there have been “no conversations” about the next movie and that “everyone’s a bit tired” right now. As well, he has quite a few other projects coming up. He’s shooting Steven Soderbergh’s NASCAR heist film Lucky Logan, playing Iago in an off Broadway production of Othello and will star in and produce Purity for Showtime.
