43-year-old actor Daniel Craig could become the longest serving 007 of all time after being offered a multi-million pound deal.
That would make him the longest-running James Bond, ahead of Roger Moore with seven, Sean Connery with six and Pierce Brosnan with four. Wilson says “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.”
He goes on to say “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 favourite Bond since Sean Connery and I can’t argue with them. He’s doing a great job”
Craig is reportedly earning £8 million for his work in the Sam Mendes-directed “Skyfall”. Asked about the film, Wilson says the tone is very much back to Connery-era Bond – “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.”
