Daily Mail says Craig to get $32 million for Bonds 24 and 25

Daniel Craig will get a combined 20 million pounds, or about $32 million based on conversion rates as of Sept. 9 for Bond 24 and Bond 25, according to the U.K Daily Mail, which didn’t specify how it obtained that information.

The story (which you can view by CLICKING HERE) has this phrasing:

Craig, 44, who makes his third outing as 007 in Skyfall later this year, signed a deal last week which is expected to see him earn £10  million per picture.

What isn’t known is WHO expects this. The Daily Mail? Somebody else who knows the details? Assuming a contract was actually signed, Craig, Eon Production, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Sony would actually know the amount involved.

The MI6 007 fan Web site reported last week that Craig was contracted for two more movies after the upcoming Skyfall. The Deadline entertainment news Web site in its story on the subject also reported that Sony Corp.’s Sony Pictures extended an agreement to co-finance 007 movies with MGM through Bond 25. That accord was originally set Skyfall and Bond 24.
