Could Spectre Be Craig’s Last After Lewis Gamble?

With the release date set for the new James Bond movie Spectre, William Hill are offering 4/1 this is the final outing in the famous tux for Daniel Craig. Damian Lewis is the 6/4 favourite to be named as the next Bond after a stunning gamble at the end of June saw his odds tumble from 25/1 and he overtook the long-time favourite, Idris Elba, who is now 5/2 second favourite.

“Daniel Craig has a contract for one more movie after Spectre, however, there is every chance this movie will be his last,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Certainly the gamble on Damian Lewis last month suggests that it could be.”
