London - Daniel Craig is set to become the longest serving James Bond with five more movies.

The 43-year-old actor is currently shooting Skyfall, his third film about the British spy, but producer Michael G Wilson revealed he hopes to lock Daniel in to do eight films altogether, taking his total to one more than Sir 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 The People newspaper: "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."
