Craig signs up for two more Bonds
Daniel Craig has signed up to play James Bond in two more films, it has been confirmed.
The 44-year-old British actor was first signed up to play 007 in 2005 and has starred in three Bond films already - Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace and Skyfall, which is due for release on October 26 2012.
Now Deadline.com has confirmed internet rumours that Eon Productions has signed a deal with Daniel for him to play Ian Fleming's infamous secret agent character at least twice more.
These five films will make Daniel the third longest serving Bond. Sir Sean Connery played him for six films, and Sir Roger Moore made seven 007 films.
Skyfall, the 23rd film in the series, is to be given a royal premiere attended by the Prince of Wales at the Royal Albert Hall in London on October 23.
Among those due to attend the premiere are Daniel and Dame Judi Dench, who returns as M, along with other stars such as Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Berenice Marlohe, Albert Finney and Ben Whishaw. Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes will also stride the red carpet.
The Bond movies celebrate a half century this year and Skyfall's premiere comes little over a fortnight after the 50th anniversary of the first Bond film, Dr No, which received its world premiere on October 5 1962.
