Daniel Craig in place for two more Bond films?

Rumours suggest star has signed on for Bond 24 and 25

Skyfall will be exploding into cinemas in a matter of weeks and there could be more good news for fans of Daniel Craig's Bond, with the fansite MI6 reporting that the star has signed on for a further two films.

The site claims that Craig is already contracted to appear in Bond 24 and Bond 25, which would bring him up to five films in total. That would see him become the third longest-serving Bond, behind Roger Moore and Sean Connery on seven each.

Craig has often suggested that he intends to stick with the role as a long-term thing, and clearly takes the responsibility of portraying 007 very seriously.

"Bond movies live or die on their popularity," he told Esquire earlier this year. "They force you to care about what people think. And I’m involved [in the films] on a very deep level. I have it in my mind all the time."

From the sounds of things, he'll have international terrorists and impossibly glamourous women running around his brain for a good while to come. In the shorter term, Skyfall opens in the UK on 26 October 2012.

Would you be happy to see Craig continue for another two films? Tell us, below!

      As they are taking the semi-realistic approach, there no risk of invisible cars or a pneumatic 'nuclear scientist' in short shorts and a tanktop. Actually that last one rather sounded fun. More please! Lol.

      Sean Connery has only starred in 6 "official" James Bond films. Never Say Never Again is a remake of Thunderball and is not considered part of the cannon of films. So technically, Roger Moore is the longest serving Bond actor; 7 films from 1973's Live And Let Die to 1985's A View To A Kill.

      Surely there should have been a spoiler warning on this story. Where will the tension come from now we know Bond will live for at least a couple more films? I'll not be wasting my pennies going to see this if i know that whatever the danger Bond will find an escape. You've ruined it for me.
