He’s already starred in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace and is currently filming Skyfall, but “James Bond” films producer Michael G. Wilson says he would like Daniel Craig to star in five more 007 movies.
Speaking to People.co.uk, Wilson says he hopes Craig will become the longest serving James Bond actor, passing up Roger Moore’s seven appearances.
“Daniel’s been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a terrific man. The fans love him and I don’t think there’s a better actor to play the part… It’s certainly something we’ll be discussing with him once we finish shooting ‘Skyfall.’”
He added that “Filming has gone very well so far and I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s record and do eight pictures. Daniel’s been an absolute pleasure to be around because he takes the role so seriously. There’s really no one more passionate about making these films work than him – he’s a filmmaker’s dream.
“A lot of people have said Daniel’s been their favorite Bond since Sean Connery and I can’t argue with them. He’s doing a great job.”
About Skyfall, Wilson said that “director Sam Mendes and Daniel are taking it back to a 60s feel – more Sean. I think that’s what the fans wanted. There’s a magical Goldfinger feel surrounding it all. It’s all very exciting. I can’t wait for people to see the movie because I think we’re making a very special Bond.”
Skyfall is scheduled for a November 9, 2012 release.
