Daniel Craig to continue as Bond

After winning rave reviews for Casino Royale, Actor Daniel Craig has signed a $60m (€41m) deal to star in the next four 'James Bond' films.

The blond 39-year-old is currently filming Bond 22 - his second outing as secret agent 007 following the success of 2006's 'Casino Royale' - and movie executives have reportedly signed him up for another three films, tying him to the franchise for the next 10 years.

A source says: "To date Daniel has been quite cautious over saying how many films he'd be starring in.

"It was presumed he'd probably do a couple more but the word is the new deal ensures he'll do at least another four across the next decade."

Craig's predecessor, Pierce Brosnan, starred in four Bond movies - but the longest-serving 007 star remains to be Roger Moore, who played the iconic role in seven films between 1973 and 1985.
