Daniel Craig has denied speculation that Skyfall could be a two-parter because each film takes too long to film.

The 44-year-old star - who reprised his role as 007 - has reassured fans the 24th and 25th movies in the series will not be divided in two parts.

He said: “It’s impossible to do a two parter, I heard that someone was talking about that we’re doing a two parter, but that’s the first I’ve heard about it.

“We can only do them one at a time, they take six months to shoot. You can’t write one movie thinking about the next.”

Craig admits he is keen to star in the 25th motion picture in the franchise after already signing up to play 007 for a fourth time.

In an interview with Filmstarts, he added: “All we’re trying to do is get the next one sorted out and it’ll stand on its own and if I’m able I’ll do another one after that.”

John Logan is said to have already started writing the next two Bond films and he reportedly approached producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson with an idea for an original two-movie arc while ‘Skyfall’ was still filming.

The as-yet untitled 24th Bond film is slated for release in autumn 2014.
