Craig may become the longest serving 007.
Roger Moore is currently the longest running James Bond, with seven outings as the British secret agent. Sean Connery comes in second with six and Pierce Brosnan with four, but that could change if producer Michael G. Wilson gets his way. The legendary Bond producer is looking to extend current 007 Daniel Craig’s run on Her Majesty’s Secret Service for a total of eight films.
Talking to The People (via The Daily Mail), Wilson said, “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 work than him – he’s a film maker’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.”
‘Skyfall,’ which is currently in production under the director of Sam Mendes, is Craig’s third Bond film. Wilson also revealed that the movie will have a magical 1960s feel and will channel the 1963 classic Goldfinger.
“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.”
