Washington, March 28 : Former James Bond star Sir Sean Connery is planning to return to the 007 franchise in a negative role.
The 77-year-old screen legend was the first actor to bring the famous super spy to life.
He starred in seven of the hit films, with his last outing being 1983's Never Say Never Again.
But this time, Connery isn't planning to reprise the lead role.
The actor is considering a part in a new Bond movie - but only if he is cast as a villain.
"I wouldn't mind coming back as a Bond villain. But I don't think they would pay me enough," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
"They don't pay the money for other parts, only for the Bond character, although that wasn't the case when I was doing it," he added.
