Via CBn, the Hollywood Reporter reveals that Daniel Craig has signed a contract with MGM for four more Bond pictures.

Not only is this good news for fans of Craig’s performance, I think it’s good for Craig as an actor. It lets him breathe in the role. He’s not focused on ‘this picture, then we’ll see;’ he can stretch his legs.

Plus, it should silence a lot of fan speculation about “who’s next?” which, let’s face it, can get old.

By the way, this is as good a place as any to apologize for writing less. I’ve been super, super busy. My intention has always been to have this primarily be a place to discuss Bond, with news and birthdays as a bonus. The past few weeks I know that there’s been too little discussion, and I completely intend to get back to it.
