James Bond star Daniel Craig has denied the next 007 will be a sequel to QUANTUM OF SOLACE.
The latest superspy picture - which followed on from Craig's debut in 2006's Casino Royale - has been a major international hit, scoring high in box office charts the world over.
But Craig is adamant that his third outing as the secret agent will feature a brand new storyline.
He tells Collider, "No f**king way. I'm done with that story. I want to lie on a beach for the first half an hour of the next movie drinking a cocktail.
"We've finished this story as far as I'm concerned. We've got a great set of bad guys. There is an organisation that we can use whenever we want to. The relationship between Bond and M is secure and Felix is secure. Let's try and find where Moneypenny came from and where Q comes from. Let's do all that and have some fun with it."
But Craig admits there is currently no filming schedule in place for the next Bond movie.
He adds, "Nobody's thinking about it at the moment. We're giving it a rest for the moment. If I can squeeze something in next year I will... but I haven't figured out what that'll be yet. But nothing in the cold."
