Barbara Broccoli says she isn't giving any thought to replacing Daniel Craig as Bond, until he definitely rules himself out of the role
James Bond producers don't want to lose Daniel Craig.
While Daniel has admitted he isn't sure if he will return for another Bond movie after 'SPECTRE', Barbara Broccoli - who is the daughter of original Bond producer Albert 'Cubby' Broccoli and now co-produces the films alongside her half brother Michael G. Wilson - admitted she doesn't want to consider another actor for the role just yet.
She told the New York Times: "Maybe I'm in denial, but I don't want to think about another Bond. Until he definitely says otherwise, I'm not going to give it another thought."
Speaking about Daniel's reign as Bond, which kicked off in 2006's 'Casino Royale', she added: "We just didn't feel in a post-9/11 world that we could be as fantastical as before. Craig is more rounded. And now I don't even want to think about someone else as Bond."
Barbara's comments come after the actor caused controversy by claiming he'd rather "slash his wrists" than star in another Bond film.
Asked if he planned to reprise the role of 007 for a fifth time, he said: "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists.
"We're done. All I want to do is move on."
However, he has since backtracked by claiming he "loves making these films".
