Next year not only mark the release of Skyfall, the 23rd film in the James Bond series, but also the franchise's 50th anniversary, going back to 1962's Doctor No. Set to open Nov. 9, the latest installment will be the third with Daniel Craig in the lead role, following 2006's Casino Royale and 2008's Quantum of Solace. But if producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have their say, it certainly won't be his last.
In an interview with People UK, Wilson said he'd like to sign Craig up for eight total movies, which would make the actor the longest-running 007, surpassing Roger Moore's seven appearances. Connery did six films, Pierce Brosnan four, Timothy Dalton two and George Lazenby just one.
Wilson also said they'd like to get all six Bond actors together in some way to celebrate the franchise's anniversary, but they're still working out the details. There's also talk of opening up the famous Pinewood Studios for tours of sets from Bond's half-century on screen.
