Los Angeles - James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli says they're "planning to hold on to" Daniel Craig for as long as possible.
Barbara - who is the daughter of original Bond producer Albert 'Cubby' Broccoli and now co-produces the films alongside her half brother Michael G. Wilson - has revealed there are no plans to replace the 47-year-old actor following his work on Spectre, Skyfall, Quantum of Solace and Casino Royale.
Explaining that "making a James Bond film is tough", Barbara shared: 'The logistics are a grind but Sam Mendes was directing for a second time, and Léa Seydoux is absolutely mesmerising as Bond's love interest, Dr. Madeline Swann. In a lot of ways, making the films is like what James experiences in Spectre: You're put through your paces, but the result is tremendously exciting."
The 55-year-old producer added to New York magazine that "we're planning to hang on to Daniel as long as we can."
Barbara's comments come after the actor caused controversy by claiming he'd rather "slash his wrists" than star in another Bond film.
Asked if he planned to reprise the role of 007 for a fifth time, he said: "I'd rather break this glass and slash my wrists.
"We're done. All I want to do is move on."
However, he has since backtracked by claiming he "loves making these films".
