Michael G Wilson, the Bond producer, has revealed that Daniel Craig, an English actor and current James Bond, could become the longest serving 007. He also added that he would like to see Craig beat Roger Moore’s record of longest serving 007.

This would mean Craig signing up to another 5 films, a multi-million pound deal which would take Craig’s Bond toll to eight. Roger Moore is currently the actor who has starred in the most Bond films – seven between 1973 and 1985.

“I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s record and do eight pictures. 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”, Wilson was quoted as saying to the media.

The 43 year-old said he is taking it one film at a time: “If this Bond is successful there will be another after that”.

If the deal goes ahead, he may be in his early 50s by the time he finishes them. Moore also holds the record for being the oldest Bond, he was 45 when he began filming his first – Live and Let Die – and 58 when he announced his retirement in 1985.

Craig is currently working on Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes. This new Bond film will be his third, having previously starred in Quantum of Solace and Casino Royal – both movies taking the audience to a new 007 experience.

Wilson said Skyfall will have a distinct 1960s style: “The director Sam Mendes and Daniel are taking it back to a 60s feel – more Sean. I think that’s what the fans wanted”, he concluded.
