Daniel Craig desperate to return as Bond

London: Daniel Craig reveals he can`t wait to reprise his role as "James Bond" the suave spy for the third time.

"The new Bond movie is on hold but I am champing at the bit to get going on it as quickly as possible. I love playing Bond - I don`t want to be away from it for too long," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

However, the producers - Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson of the film - are said to be concerned about the delay as they fear it could kill off the franchise for good.

"They`re completely panicked that if they go five, six years without a Bond movie, it`ll be over. They don`t want to kill the golden goose," said a source.
