Daniel Craig has claimed he would rather "slash my wrists" than do another James Bond film.

Craig, 47, who will reprise his role as the famous British spy for the fourth and final time in forthcoming film Spectre, said he wanted to move on from the franchise.

Asked whether he could imagine doing another Bond movie after Spectre, he told Time Out: "Now? I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists...all I want to do is move on."

In a candid interview, the actor also said:

  • he didn't "give a f*** who plays Bond next"
  • he would do another 007 film "only for the money"
  • that he had not given "any thought" to what he would do next
  • that his advice to his successor was to "embrace it" and "don't be s***"

Spectre reunites Craig with director Sam Mendes after 2012's Skyfall became the highest-grossing Bond film in history.

Naomie Harrie, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear will return for the much-anticipated film which features Christopher Waltz as the villain.

Award-winning artist Sam Smith is singing the new Bond theme.

The video to Writing's On The Wall was released earlier this week.
