James Bond star Daniel Craig has said he wants to "reclaim the old irony" from earlier Bond films.

Craig told entertainment site Vulture, "Hopefully we'll reclaim some of the old irony and make sure it doesn't become pastiche."

"I can't do shtick, I'm not very good at it. Unless it kind of suddenly makes sense. Does that make sense? I sometimes wish I hammed it up more, but I just can't do it very well, so I don't do it."

The next Bond film, "Bond 24", will again be written by John Logan and see Craig reprise his role as 007. Skyfall director Sam Mendes will head up the film which is due for release in November 2015.
