producer Michael G Wilson has been talking to
magazine about the upcoming Bond adventure, and has compared it to one of the classics of the series in terms of mood and “magic”.
“The director Sam Mendes and Daniel [ Craig ] are taking it back to a '60s feel - more Sean Connery,” says Wilson. “I think that’s what the fans wanted.”
“There's a magical Goldfinger feel surrounding it all,” he continues. “It's all very exciting. I can't wait for people to see the movie because I think we're making a very special Bond.”
Meanwhile, Wilson is keen for Daniel Craig to become the longest serving Bond of all time, with a new five-picture deal reportedly on the table.
“Daniel's been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a terrific man," said Wilson. "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. There’s really no one more passionate about making these films work than him – he’s a filmmaker’s dream.”
Skyfall is released in the UK on 26 October 2012.
