Daniel Craig could be longest running James Bond
London: Daniel Craig has been offered a multi-million pound deal for five more Bond films, which would make him the actor with the most Bond movies in the franchise’s history.
Producer Michael G Wilson said he would love Craig to do five more films, taking his total to eight.
“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,” the Daily Mail quoted producer Michael G Wilson as telling The People.
If the actor accepts the deal, he would be ahead of current longest-running Bond, Roger Moore, by one movie.
It would also knock Sean Connery, who played the spy in six films, from second position.
“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 said.
While Wilson did not confirm financial details, it is rumoured Craig will earn more than the 8 million pounds he is reportedly being paid for Skyfall.
