Well, that was in in October, and during a round table press event for The Golden Compass, Craig cleared up a few misconceptions regarding his involvement in the classic franchise. He says, "Well, that's what's been said, it's not that it's not true, because I haven't signed up. What I've done is I've signed up on the next movie [Bond 22], after that we'll see. That's the way I'm doing it, and certainly it's not four more - that's the truth. It's certainly not four more". Craig has been relatively chatty lately about the film. It was only a couple of days ago that he finally put fans minds at ease and admitted he had just been yanking our chains a little with that whole "comedy Bond" routine.
Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is more than a little relieved that Craig will not be mugging for the cameras this time around, but I am a tad disappointed that he might not return for more films. Especially since I thought Craig was one of the best Bonds in the bunch (how's that for an alliteration?). Bond 22 (and just as a side note: am I the only one who hopes this film gets a proper title soon? Bond 22 is just not doing it for me) is set for release on November 7th, 2008. So let the wild speculation begin -- who do you think would make a good Bond if Craig decides not to return?
