Daniel Craig Net Worth: How Rich Could Two More ‘James Bond’ Films Make Him

Daniel Craig’s James Bond not only allowed the franchisee to earn massive profits but also pulled Sony out of near-bankruptcy. The star has been, reportedly, offered $150 million by Sony for being a part of the next two Bond movies. But Daniel Craig is yet to confirm his comeback.

“The studio is desperate to secure the actor’s services while they phase in a younger long-term successor,” Radar Online quoted a source as saying.

Sony has belted out a huge amount of money to re-up the distribution rights for the Bond movies and the announcement should be coming soon. It would also be highly advantageous to Sony if Craig is able to pull off the next two films, before the role goes to someone else, the Celebrity Net Worth reported.

There are much speculations around who the next James Bond would be and the list of possible actors include Michael Fassbender, Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba.

According to a source, Daniel Craig “has played a genius hand.” The Sony executives are also, reportedly, quite fond of him.

“Everyone knows how much executives adore him, and the idea of losing him at such a crucial time in the franchise isn’t an option as far as all the studio honchos are concerned,” the insider said. “Daniel’s the key for a seamless, safe transition as far as Sony and Bond bosses are concerned, and they’re prepared to pay a king’s ransom to make it happen.”

Daniel Craig received a mere remuneration of 2.5 million for his first Bond movie, Casino Royale, which went on to make a whopping $600 million at the box office worldwide. However, the paycheque became heftier with the next movies in the series, as he earned an impressive $6 million for ‘Quantum of Solace’ and $15 million for ‘Skyfall.’ For ‘Spectre’ the actor received $22 million for acting, $5 million from endorsements and a $24 million from backend bonuses.
