Daniel Craig is about to become the longest running James Bond star, if he accepts the film bosses offer to star in five more movies.
The 43-year-old actor is currently shooting ‘Skyfall’, which is his third Bond film. Producer Michael G. Wilson revealed that he hopes to lock Daniel in for five more films, which would bring his total to one more than Roger Moore’s seven.
Speaking about a potential multi-million pound deal for Daniel, he said: “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’. 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 than him – he’s a filmmaker’s dream.
“A lot of people have said Daniel’s been their favourite Bond since Sean Connery and I can’t argue with them. He’s doing a great job.”
Michael also revealed the latest film is going back to its roots and fans can expect a ‘Goldfinger’ feel to the movie.
He told People: “The 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.”
I hope he does sign on to star in five more films. I think Daniel Craig makes the perfect Bond! What do you think?
