Daniel Craig fuels speculations he is quitting role as James Bond as he signs up for new TV series Purity
Daniel Craig has fuelled speculation that he is to leave his role as James Bond after he signed up for a lengthy TV project.
The star has played 007 four times, most recently in 2015's Spectre, but has yet to formally commit to another.
According to Deadline, Craig has signed up for a lead role in Purity, a new TV series based on Jonathan Franzen's best-selling novel.
Adapted by Todd Field and produced by Scott Rudin, who Craig previously worked with on 2012's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Purity follows Pip, a young American woman who does not know who she is.
In search of answers she meets Andreas, a charismatic German who heads a South America-based organization that traffics in all the secrets of the world. He offers her an internship at the firm in the hope that she can find herself.
The show, which is expected to be a minimum of 20 episodes, is currently at the centre of a bidding war between major US networks.
Spectre will be released on DVD a week today (February 22nd) and is available to pre-order on the right-hand side of the page.
