‘James Bond’ ‘rejects’ 50mn Samsung offer to promote its phone


‘James Bond’ Daniel Craig has reportedly rejected a $50 million offer from Samsung to promote one of its smart phones.

Having promoted Heineken for $45 million in ‘Skyfall,’ Craig rejected the Samsung offer.

Sony offered $5 million to Bond to carry a smart phone, with an $18 million bid to be the exclusive vendor whereas Samsung offered the same $5 million deal for Bond, but beefed the total payment to $50 million, reports News.co.au.

However, both the offers were rejected by the 47-year-old actor and director Sam Mendes, after judging the phones to be too lacklustre for Bond.

The next installment of the hit franchise is slated to release in November.
