This multi-million dollar deal will put Daniel Craig at eight James Bond movies altogether, making him the longest serving 007 in the franchise's history. Roger Moore has seven Bond adventures under his belt, not counting his appearance in The Cannonball Run, where he plays a spoof of the character going unnamed.
"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.
Filming (on Skyfall) 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."
Casino Royale, which marked Daniel Craig's first turn as James Bond, stands as the most profitable entry in the twenty-three film franchise. Michael G. Wilson continued to talk about the latest one, Skyfall, comparing it to what Sean Connery did in the 60s.
"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. I can't wait for people to see the movie because I think we're making a very special Bond."
Michael G. Wilson reveals that there is a plan to get all six James Bonds together for a special retrospective timed to the release of Skyfall. Those actors include Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig. David Niven, who played 007 in the original 1967 Casino Royale, passed away in 1983.
