Since the release of Spectre last year, actor Daniel Craig has openly expressed his loathing of continuing to play the role of James Bond. In fact, he's said he'd "rather slash my wrists" than do another Bond film.

In May, reports said the English actor rejected a $100 million offer to return for two more films, and now, Sony is reportedly upping the offer to $150 million, reports Radar.

"The studio is desperate to secure the actor's services while they phase in a younger long-term successor," a source said.

Craig, 48, first played Bond in 2006's Casino Royale, and has played the iconic spy in four films total, the last being Spectre. If he accepts the offer, he'll have played Bond six times. Only Sean Connery and Roger Moore has played the character six or more times.

Although Sony is attempting to keep Craig aboard, there's been a list of potential replacements, including Tom Hiddleston and Idris Elba. Who do you think would be a good James Bond?
