Daniel Craig 'done' with 007, turns down $146m deal

Daniel Craig is reportedly "done" with playing James Bond.

The Daily Mail reports Craig turned down a £68 million ($146 million) deal from MGM Studio which would've seen the actor return for two more Bond films.

In an interview with Time Out London last year, Craig - who has played Bond since 2005 - was asked if he could imagine doing another Bond film.

He replied: "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No...not at all...All I want to do is move on."

He went on to say, "If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money".

But now, an industry source has told the Daily Mail, "Daniel is done - pure and simple".

"He had told people after shooting [Spectre] that this would be his final outing, but the film company still felt he could come around...if he was offered a money deal.

"They threw huge amounts of money at him but it just wasn't what he wanted."
