It's been widely noted online, though, that Craig, 48, has expressed little interest in returning to the iconic role. But, with Sony still in the vetting process for the next Bond, the company is looking to secure Craig until the process is complete.

"Daniel's the key for a seamless, safe transition as far as Sony and Bond bosses are concerned," according to Radaronline's anonymous source. "And they're prepared to pay a king's ransom to make it happen."

With Sony expected to announce in the next few days that the studio is renewing its rights to distribute Bond films, the site says they'd like to tie Daniel down for two more films, shot back to back, before transitioning the role to a new actor.
