Daniel Craig`s `Quantum of Solace` producer Barbara Broccoli will reportedly be increasing the incentives for the star to keep him in the iconic film role of `James Bond`. The 52-year-old producer`s has claimed that the next installment of the `007` series, whose director Sam Mendes has quit, will be the hardest to make, the Daily Express reported.

The daughter of the late Bond producer Albert R “Cubby” Broccoli said in an interview with Day and Night News that she`s determined to keep Craig in his tuxedo for the next few years. She has clearly said that she will not let the 45-year-old actor go anywhere and expressed sadness over Mendes` departure from the franchise following the award-winning ` Skyfall `.

Broccoli, who co-produces the films with her half-brother Michael G. Wilson, explained that they do not want to disappoint the fans, that have kept them going all these years and they always try to make films that will please them so the pressure is on even more so than ever. She further added that she was thrilled that the famous spy was an integral part of the Olympics last year, when Craig appeared in the opening ceremony alongside Her Majesty the Queen.

The man who helped make the latest James Bond film ‘Skyfall’ the highest-grossing film in the UK – EVER! – knocking ‘Avatar’ off the top spot, turns 45 on Saturday.

Daniel Craig’s 45th year has been pretty spectacular – not only did he tour the world promoting ‘Skyfall’ but he got to star alongside the Queen in the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Congrats Daniel!!!

We know there’s a planned tribute to honor the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise at the Oscars this weekend, but at least one 007 won’t be in attendance. According to Rachel Weisz, wife of “Skyfall” star Daniel Craig, she and her husband won’t even be in the building at Sunday’s show.

“No, we’re not coming [to the Oscars],” Weisz, who stars in March’s “Oz the Great and Powerful,” told CNN Saturday.

That’s likely disappointing for Bond fans who were hoping there was truth to the rumor that the six leading men in the series would all appear as part of the tribute. The segment itself was announced in January, with Oscars producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron saying in a statement posted on Deadline that they were “very happy to include a special sequence on our show saluting the Bond films on their 50th birthday.” They didn’t mention anything about bringing the actors who played the agent onto the stage, but speculation that Pierce Brosnan, Sean Connery, Roger Moore and the rest were going to appear soon spread online.

However, Brosnan has also seemingly shut down theories about any potential participation. When TMZ brought up the gossip regarding all six Bonds making an appearance, Brosnan cryptically replied, “well, they’ll be missing one.”

Even without all six actors, the tribute is already a can’t-miss moment: Both Adele, who’s nominated for an Oscar thanks to her “Skyfall” theme song, and legendary Bond franchise vocalist Shirley Bassey are set to perform.

Back in October it was reported that Skyfall screenwriter John Logan had signed a deal to pen the scripts for a two-movie 007 arc for Bond 24 and Bond 25, which would then be shot back-to-back. However, with the billion dollar success of Daniel Craig’s latest outing, it seems that producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have changed their minds and are now looking at a standalone story for the super spy’s 24th screen adventure, with Skyfall director Sam Mendes said to be close to agreeing a return.

According to Baz Bamigboye of The Daily Mail, Academy Award-winner Mendes “hasn’t firmly made up his mind about directing another Bond, but I’m reliably told he’s ’75 per cent’ of the way towards doing it.” Apparently Mendes was reluctant to commit to the plans to shoot two movies back-to-back, but with those plans jettisoned, he’s now on board “in theory”, but wants to see a finished script from Logan first. The report goes on to state that Bond 24 could go into pre-production later this year, which would surely be a necessity if Eon are to have any chance of meeting a planned release in 2014.

Having pulled in $1.1 billion at the global box-office to date, Skyfall is currently the 007th highest-grossing movie of all-time, and sees Daniel Craig starring alongside the likes of Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Albert Finney, Ben Wishaw and Bérénice Marlohe.
