Daniel Craig News Archive
Looks like James Bond could be in trouble!

Craig is set to star in Purity, a new drama series produced by Scott Rudin that is currently looking for offers from networks.
The new show, which is based on a book by the same name written by Jonathan Franzen is looking for a series order of 20 episodes and is seeking bids from Showtime, FX, Netflix, Hulu and Amazon.

Lana Del Rey Would Have Gladly Done The Spectre Theme Song — Find Out Why She Didn't Become A Bond Girl HERE!
This seems like a big mistake on their part.
Lana Del Rey may have one of the most emotionally charged voices in the industry, but that wasn't enough to score her the theme song for the newest James Bond film Spectre.
As you're probably aware, Sam Smith was the lucky Brit selected to follow in Adele's footsteps off Skyfall… except that his Writing's on the Wall was not nearly as successful as his predecessor's Oscar-winning ballad.
Unfortunately for the Daniel Craig vehicle, they may have missed a big opportunity for a hit because, as it turns out, Lana says she would have jumped at the chance to helm the action flick, saying:

Earlier this year, the Luther star said discussions with MGM producers "never happened," and that rumors in the media were actually hurting his chances to play the British action hero!

Flash forward to Saturday's non-televised Governors Awards — the two actors met face to face at the bar in the Ray Dolby Ballroom!
The Spectre star made up for his churning of the rumor mill in the most suave, Bond-like way possible — by planting a kiss on his possible successor!
