Daniel Craig is set to become the highest-paid James Bond actor after signing on for two more films as the famous British spy. Craig, 44, will be paid $48 million to star in two more titles of the 50-year-old franchise, London's Sunday Times reports.

Craig's 007 predecessor Pierce Brosnan earned up to $US16.5 million for his third and final Bond film, Die Another Day.

Sean Connery, the original Bond, was paid an average of 218,000 pounds for each film, equating to about 3.2 million pounds in 2012 terms.
