According to the Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Craig may ultimately star in as many as eight Bond films.
The actor is currently shooting the latest flick in the franchise (his third as James Bond), “Skyfall,” and he's reportedly in talks to sign on for more movies.
Franchise producer Michael G. Wilson told Sunday newspaper The People that he will be discussing more Craig-as-Bond movies once “Skyfall” wraps. “Filming has gone very well and I'd love Daniel to surpass Roger's [Moore] record and do eight pictures," Wilson said.
Craig’s already done three Bond films, so that leaves five more to go. The sixth actor to play the iconic spy on film, Craig, 43, made his debut as Bond in the 2006 hit, “Casino Royale.” He followed it up with 2008's "Quantum of Solace."
“Skyfall” is slated to hit theaters in November of next year. You can catch Craig sleuthing it up in "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," out this week.
