If you’re a fan of Daniel Craig in the James Bond films, well, it’s your lucky day…sort of. Craig, who’s starred in 2006’s “Casino Royale”, 2008’s “Quantum of Solace” and the currently filming “Skyfall”, set to be released next year, is wanted for an additional give more James Bond films.
According to the films producer Michael G. Wilson, he’d love for Craig to do five more films. Says Wilson:
“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.'”
He added that “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 filmmaker’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.”
About “Skyfall”, Wilson said that “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.”
“Skyfall” is scheduled for a November 9, 2012 release in the U.S. and November 22 in Australia.
If Craig accepts, he’d surpass Roger Moore, whose seven appearances spanned 12 years from 1973-1985.
