Delusional James Bond Producers Are Desperate To Get Daniel Craig To Return As 007
Yeah, about that...

Daniel Craig does not want to play James Bond again. Actually, to rephrase that, Daniel Craig really doesn't want to fucking play James Bond ever again, goddammit.
While supporting the latest Bond movie last year, Craig made it very clear that he would "rather break this glass and slash my wrists," than return to play 007 again. Throughout the press tour for Spectre, he regularly talked shit about the character, calling him a misogynist. Then, according to reports, he turned down USD99 million to play the character again, then turned down another offer of USD150 million.
The guy really doesn't want to play James Bond, okay?
Unfortunately, the James Bond producers aren't getting the hint. They still want Craig.
Callum McDougall, executive producer of the last four Bond movies, told the BBC that Craig is the "first choice" to play the character again. When asked if Craig would be returning, McDougall said:
"I wish I knew. We love Daniel. We would love Daniel to return as Bond. Without any question he is absolutely (producers) Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli's first choice. I know they're hoping for him to come back."
