Daniel Craig is to be offered a new deal that will make him the longest-serving James Bond, according to reports.
Craig's new contract will run for five movies, which would take his total to eight, which is one more than current record holder Roger Moore, The People reports.
Moore played the British secret agent from 1973 to 1985, starting with Live and Let Die, and culminating in A View to a Kill.
Producer Michael G Wilson said: "Daniel's been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a terrific man. The fans love him and I don't think there's a better actor to play the part. It's certainly something we'll be discussing with him once we finish shooting Skyfall.
"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. "
He added: "There's really no-one more passionate about making these films work than him - he's a filmmaker'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."
Skyfall is set for release on October 26, 2012.
