Daniel Craig has denied reports that he has signed up to continue as James Bond.

The English actor first played 007 in 2006's Casino Royale, and speculation about his future in the franchise has continued ever since Spectre was released in 2015.

Before the release of his last outing, Craig told Time Out magazine that at that point he'd rather "slash my wrists" than reprise the role - but the New York Times reported last month that the star would return for at least one more Bond film.

With an expected November 2019 release, work on 'Bond 25' would need to be well underway in only a few months to make its already scheduled date.

However, Craig - who is promoting his role in the upcoming Logan Lucky - has now moved to downplay the reports.

Speaking on Boston radio station Magic 106.7, Craig explained: "No decision has been made at the moment. There's a lot of noise out there, and nothing official has been confirmed.

"I'm not holding out for more money or doing anything like that. It's just all very personal decisions to be made at the moment."

He added: "I know they're desperate to get going and I would in theory love to do it - but there is no decision just yet."
