“I’d love Daniel to surpass Roger’s record and do eight pictures,” Wilson said speaking to The People. “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. 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.”
While some have doubts about the Bond franchise’s new direction dubbing it more Bourne than Bond (and after Quantum Of Solace that’s probably quite understandable), Craig has been successful in updating an ageing series that was getting far too dependant on silly gadgets and implausible innuendo.
Speaking of Bond 23 Skyfall Wilson said, “The director Sam Mendes and Daniel are taking it back to a 60s feel. It’s more ‘Sean’,” says Wilson. “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. Filming’s going very well so far.”
