While excitement should be building for “Spectre,” arguably grabbing more headlines has been Daniel Craig‘s cranky press tour for the latest James Bond movie. He’s let his dissatisfaction take center court, underscoring in multiple interviews he has no real desire to reprise the role, and that he’d only return for the money. In other interviews he’s been slightly less hostile, but he hasn’t been enthusiastic, and apparently, Sony is tired of it.
Page Six reports that executives have told Craig to “shut up,” apparently scolding him for his outbursts, particularly in his latest chat with Time Out London, in which he said, “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists” than play Bond again. With a couple more weeks of promotion to go, it’ll be interesting so see how managed his appearances may (or may not) become.
Meanwhile, the marketing train continues with two more TV spots and an IMAX poster for the movie. 007 takes aim on November 6th.
