Daniel Craig could be written out of the sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, according to a new report.

Directed by David Fincher, the Hollywood adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s best-selling novel – the first in his ‘Millennium trilogy’ – came out in December 2011. It starred Craig as investigative journalist Mikael Blomkvist, while Rooney Mara played computer-hacking heroine Lisbeth Salander.

The sequel, an adaptation of Larsson’s second novel The Girl Who Played With Fire, was originally due this year (2013). However, the project was delayed while its script was being finished and Fincher has yet to sign up as director.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo took $233 million (£147 million) at the box office worldwide, which makers Sony later described as a “modest loss”. According to sources talking to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is “hellbent” on reducing the cost of the sequel, which could involve cutting Craig, who reportedly wants a pay rise following the billion-dollar success of Skyfall.

However, the sequel now has a finished script by Steven Zaillian, who also adapted Dragon Tattoo, and Sony is said to be against a rewrite. Meanwhile, a source close to Craig has apparently told The Hollywood Reporter that the actor is keen to return, though negotiations have yet to begin.

DANIEL Craig braves the snowy sub-zero New York air on a trip to the gym with wife Rachel Weisz.

The actor looked a far cry from his tough alter-ego James Bond, wrapping up in several layers but still looking painfully cold.
He grimaced as he walked through heavy snow wearing a jumper, thick coat, two hoods and a scarf.
Rachel appeared more comfortable in the bone-rattling chill, smiling as she peeked out from her huge furry hat and scarf.
Unlike her hubby – whose hands looked as red as his zipped jumper – the actress wisely donned gloves.

Clearly staying in shape is of vital importance to the couple, judging by the blizzards they’re prepared to brave to get to the gym.
It’s been reported that Daniel’s fitness regime was sparked by the weight he piled on over Christmas.
A source told a paper: “He spent months beefing up for Bond. He needs to get back in the gym and start a nutritional plan to regain his Bond-esque muscles.
“Having a flabby stomach is not really his style.”

Daniel Craig may have a body that most males out there envy, but the actor thinks that he’s ‘gained weight’ since ‘James Bond’ finished being filmed and he plans to ‘get back in the gym’ pronto.

The 007 star has apparently gained nearly a stone since Christmas and says that a ‘flabby stomach just isn’t his style.’

A source told the Daily Star: “He spent months beefing up for Bond. He needs to get back in the gym and start a nutritional plan to regain his Bond-esque muscles.”

“Having a flabby stomach is not really his style.”

And it seems like his stomach isn’t the only body part playing on Daniel’s mind, with the actor also planning on ‘having his giant ears pinned back.’

According to the National Enquirer, the James Bond star “made a New Year’s resolution to permanently pin back his trademark Dumbo head-flaps via plastic surgery!”

A ‘friend’ of the hunk told the publication: “Daniel’s always been oversensitive and self-conscious about his protruding ears — he recently confessed to the director of his super-sucessful Skyfall movie that all he could see while watching the film was… his ears!”

The mag also adds that the star is “finally going to fix [his ears] for good.”

“Craig says he’ll definitely go through with the operation as soon as his schedule permits.”

You’ll always look great to us, Daniel!

Sharing a bath together is one of the most romantic ways to spend an evening, but imagine sharing it with James Bond himself.

Yes, Daniel Craig is the man that most UK women would want to give a good scrub down by sharing a bath together.

This doesn’t surprise us as the James Bond star is a hunk of a man and plays possibly the smoothest man around, 007!

He wasn’t the only man that women wanted to get their hands on and drag into the bath, oh no, there were plenty more as Bathstore found out.

Jessica Chastain has revealed that she wants to play a James Bond villain.

The Zero Dark Thirty star said that she is keen to take on a different role from her usual fare.

Enough of the graceful characters,” she told The Playlist. “I want to get my hands dirty.

“The actress also revealed herself to be a fan of horror films, listing The Exorcist, Rosemary’s Baby, The Others and Jaws as her favourite movies.

“You think about Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Mia Farrow, Jamie Lee Curtis,” said the actress, who is also currently starring in the Guillermo del Toro-produced film Mama.”

So many women I really respect have done these great characters in horror films. And I’m excited. I hope to do even more! I love it so much.

“Chastain received the ‘Best Actress’ award at the Golden Globes earlier in the month.

MOVIE bosses are fast tracking the next James Bond film because of Skyfall’s record-breaking box office success.

Film bigwigs want to get Daniel Craig back into his tuxedo as early as next year for another outing as 007.

With takings of over $1bn (£630million) and growing, Skyfall is already the most successful Bond film EVER.

The film franchise’s 23rd outing has also become the only film in UK box office history to gross over £100m.

So it’s no wonder bosses from Eon, Sony and MGM have agreed to bring forward plans for the next installment.

According to my sources, MGM want the film out by 2014 while Sony Pictures are considering allowing Craig to film the next Bond before he returns as a Swedish journalist in the Girl Who Played With Fire.

Movie execs are obviously thrilled Skyfall made so much money and saved them from bankruptcy.

Sony feel they would earn more cash from a quick follow- up to Skyfall than a sequel to The Girl With The Dragon
Tattoo, which underperformed at the box office.

And even better news for fans – Daniel Craig – pictured dressing down in New York on Friday – could then don the tuxedo for another 007 flick, his fifth, in 2016. Director Sam Mendes has verbally agreed to direct the 24th Bond, but a wages deal needs thrashing out.

Skyfall writers John Logan, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are also back on board to draft a script.

Insiders claim Craig, who will earn $40m, could be dusting off his Aston Martin as soon as September to start filming.

My source continued: “After the success of Skyfall, James Bond is an absolute priority for everyone concerned.

“The challenge now is to get the fi lm out as early as possible while at the same time maintaining the standard of quality Skyfall has set.”
