It looks like Daniel Craig will be playing super spy James Bond for a long time to come.

Craig is currently shooting ‘Skyfall,’ which is his third crack at Bond, and after that the franchise’s producers hope to sign the 43-year-old actor up for five more installments as 007.

‘Filming [on 'Skyfall'] has gone very well and I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s [Moore] record and do eight pictures,” Bond producer Michael G. Wilson told the Sunday newspaper The People.

Roger Moore leads all actors who’ve played Bond, tackling the role seven times. Sean Connery has done it six times, while Pierce Bronson has played the part in four films. Timothy Dalton was cast twice and George Lazenby once.

‘Skyfall’ is expected to released in late 2012.
