According to People.co.uk, Daniel Craig has been offered a deal to make him the longest running James Bond in history. The deal would have Craig in the role as the world's slickest spy for a total of eight films, which is one film longer than Roger Moore's legendary run on the character that ran for 12 years.
“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 film maker’s dream," said Bond producer Michael G. Wilson. "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's third foray into the world of Bond, titled Skyfall, won't be released until late 2012, but it's evident that the film's producers are setting their sights on the future of the franchise. However, with Craig already in his early 40's, and with five more movies on the horizon, it's entirely possible that we might be seeing a 50+ year-old Bond on the big screen towards the end of this new deal. We just have to hope that he continues to be the world's biggest badass when he's getting AARP magazines through the mail.
