LONDON - Daniel Craig, the British actor who will be appearing as James Bond for the fourth time in “Spectre” released later this month, has told an interviewer he would rather slit his wrists than play 007 again. “I’d rather break this glass and slit my wrists,” Craig, 47, told an interviewer for Britain’s “Time Out” entertainment magazine, when asked over breakfast if he would sign up for the role again. “No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. All I want to do is move on,” Craig said in the interview which was posted on Time Out’s website this week. The magazine says the interview was conducted in July, just after filming on the 24th Bond film was completed. Craig said that living up to the image Bond has to project is onerous, and he had put everything into the latest one. “Every idea I’ve had for a Bond movie, I’ve stuck into this one. It’s gone in. The Bond bank is dry. If you’re asking me what would I do with another Bond movie? I haven’t a clue. Go into space? Let’s do it! They already did it. Let’s do it again.” “Spectre” will be released in Britain and Ireland on Oct. 26 and in the rest of the world in early November.

He added that he is over it at that moment and wants to move on. The ‘Spectre’ star further said that for at least a year or two he does not want to think about doing another Bond film and if he takes up another one, it would be only for money. Moreover, A source told The Sun newspaper: “Daniel’s deal means he’ll bank $24million for acting, around $6million for endorsements and $30million (£19.58m) if the financial projections are on course. “Even taking inflation into account he is by far the highest paid Bond actor.” Meanwhile, Daniel recently insisted he wanted to “move on” from the franchise but would consider staying for another film for money’s sake. He said: “I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on. For at least a year or two, I just don’t want to think about it. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.

“Now? I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. No, not at the moment. Not at all. I don’t know what the next step is. I’ve no idea.” The Hollywood hunk also offered advice to his successor. He added: “Don’t listen to anybody else. Well, do listen to everybody, but you have to make the choice at the end of the day. It’s your bed to lie on. “You’ve got to step up. People do not make movies like this any more.“

This is really rare now.”
