Daniel Craig, who has played James Bond in the last four 007 films, has reportedly told studios that he is done playing the tuxedoed spy. As the news broke, rumors began to swirl about who will replace him as the next James Bond.

According to the Telegraph, Craig is believed to have turned down a $68 million offer from MGM Studios to reprise his role as the British agent in two more films.

The news shouldn’t come as a huge surprise given that Craig said last year that he would rather slit his wrists than star in another Bond film. A source reveals that Craig told bosses another Bond film wasn’t something that he wanted despite being offered huge sums of money.

But money wasn’t the only thing attached to the offer. Apparently, the offer also included endorsements, profit shares, and a co-producing role.

Despite the offer and everything it included, the Daily Record states that it wasn’t enough to persuade Craig into two more Bond films.

An insider said that Craig told top brass at MGM after Spectre that he was done with any and all Bond films.
