Daniel Craig shoots down back-to-back Bond movie rumours

Bond 24 - 01-11-12
As MI6 first reported earlier this year, Daniel Craig is contracted for at least two more James Bond films.

When it was subsequently reported during the "Skyfall" UK opening that screenwriter John Logan is to pen the next two 007 outings with a 'connected' storyline, much of the trade press speculated that this could mean shooting two movies back to back (as did the Harry Potter and Twilight franchises). The blogosphere then ran away with this as a headline.

As stated at the time of first publication, MI6 understood that this was not, and has never been, under consideration by the producers.

Daniel Craig has now confirmed that the rumour is false.

Speaking to Filmstarts at the Berlin premiere, Craig said of the rumour: ďNo, I donít know where thatís come from. It's impossible to do a two parter, I heard that someone was talking about that weíre doing a two parter, but thatís the first Iíve heard about it. We can only do them one at a time, they take six months to shoot. You canít write one movie thinking about the next. All weíre trying to do is get the next one sorted out and itíll stand on its own and if Iím able Iíll do another one after that.Ē
