James Bond star Daniel Craig could end up being the longest-tenured Bond in the history of the franchise.

According to the UK publication, People, a Bond producer would like Craig to return eight times as 007, which would make him the most filmed Bond in history -- beating Roger Moore's seven appearances.

"Daniel's been a terrific Bond, a superb actor and a terrific man," legendary Bond producer Michael G Wilson said. "The fans love him and I don’t think there's a better actor to play the part."

Craig, 43, is currently shooting his next Bond movie, Skyfall, which is set to be released in November 2012. Casino Royale, Craig's first Bond movie, made over $465 million and became the most profitable 007 movie in history.

"Filming has gone very well so far and I'd love Daniel to surpass Roger's record and do eight pictures," Michael G Wilson said. "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."
