Daniel Craig — who has portrayed 007 in four films — is said to have rejected a $99 million offer from MGM Studio to play James Bond in two more movies.

The amount is said to be made up of profit shares, endorsements and a role as co-producer. The actor has apparently told bosses he is “done” playing the suave spy.

A Los Angeles film source told a newspaper: “Daniel is done — pure and simple — he told top brass at MGM after Spectre. They threw huge amounts of money at him, but it just wasn’t what he wanted.”

He adds, “He had told people after shooting that this would be his final outing, but the film company still felt he could come around after Spectre if he was offered a money deal.”
