Daniel Craig 'excited' to be Bond again

Tuesday August 23, 2011

Daniel Craig is highly excited to be returning to his James Bond role.

The British actor is set to reprise the iconic agent alongside Dame Judi Dench as M in the upcoming Bond 23.

"I'm looking forward to the next James Bond. I'm excited to get back into the suit," he said.

The next spy instalment in the franchise will be directed by Sam Mendes, whom Daniel previously worked with on Road To Perdition.

"We're ready to go; we've got a script and start shooting in November," he said, but remained tight-lipped when questioned further.

Following his starring role in Cowboys And Aliens opposite Harrison Ford, Daniel's next big screen outing is in the Hollywood remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, directed by David Fincher.

"From what I've seen, it looks amazing," he continued.

"I'm just thrilled that Sony have given us the chance to make this movie. It's not going to be dumbed down in any way, because we're trying to appeal to a wider audience.

"It's for adults, therefore we've been able to make the movie that we wanted to make. It's like a very expensive independent movie."

According to Daniel, working with director David has been a dream come true: "I think Fincher's one of the best directors around and I enjoyed every second of working with him."

Cowboys And Aliens is in cinemas now.
