It’s all work for James Bond star Daniel Craig at the moment.
After just completing work on Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn, Craig can currently be seen alongside Hugh Jackman in the Keith Huff play A Steady Rain, which officially debuts in Manhattan, New York later this month. After that, he’ll next move into Jim Sheridan’s Psychological thriller A Dream House, which begins shooting in January 2010.
Even with all of these current filming obligations, plus his eventual return as 007 in Bond 23, Variety reports that director and writer John Hillcoat and Joe Penhall, who just recently adapted Cormac McCarthy’s The Road for the big screen, are eyeing the star for future projects.
Penhall is in talks with Craig for an English remake of the Gallic heist pic La Bonne Annee. The original film, which was made in 1973 by Claude Lelouch, follows a criminal recently released from prison who hatches a plan to rob jewelers in Cannes.
Previously, Craih and Penhall worked together on 2000’s Some Voices and again in 2004 on Enduring Love.
Meanwhile, Hillcoat is also said to be talking to Craig about an adaptation of Nick Cave’s The Death of Bunny Munro. The just published book tells the tale of a sex-obsessed traveling salesman on his final road trip.
Time will tell to see how these future projects for Craig turn out—CommanderBond.net will keep you updated with all the latest details.
