Daniel Craig - Daniel Craig to get Bond bonus

Daniel Craig and his 'Skyfall' castmates are in line for six-figure bonuses.

The 44-year-old actor - who played iconic British spy James Bond for the third time - director Sam Mendes and stars Javier Bardem, Dame Judi Dench and Ralph Fiennes will receive varying payments on top of their fees following the success of the movie at the global box office, having taken $870 million (£543 million) worldwide to date.

The figures will vary according to individual negotiations with producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, but are believed to range from $100,000 (£62,000) to $200,000 (£125,000) each.

A source told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''It's going to be in the six-figure range for most of them and at the moment the sky's the limit because it hasn't stopped taking money.''

And the stars could be in line for further bonuses as an additional scheme is in place for awards season.

Anyone nominated for a BAFTA, Oscar or Golden Globe will receive another payment, with the amount rising if they should win.

It was recently revealed Daniel will earn $49.69 million (£31 million) to portray the suave secret agent in two more movies.

The huge contract surpasses the $17.15 million (£10.7 million) he earned for 'Skyfall'.

Daniel - who is married to Rachel Weisz - has seen his salary in the role take a huge jump, having earned $3.04 million (£1.9 million) for his 2006 debut 'Casino Royale' and $7.05 million (£4.4 million) for 2008's 'Quantum of Solace'.
