Skyfall is set to release early in November, however early reviews and web chatter have already made the newest James Bond film the must-see movie of the season. While the downtime between Bond films has been long during the recent films, Daniel Craig seems to think Bond 24 may be coming sooner than expected.
According to MTV, the record setting four year downtime between James Bond films is a little too long.
"I think they'd like to [speed up the timetable], and I think that would be the plan," Craig said. "That was too long last time, although I quite enjoyed the gap, but it's too long. As long as we've got the script and we're ready to go, there's no reason why we can't start shooting."
While Craig certainly enjoyed the gap, filming films such as the English rendition of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, he affirms his interest in playing the iconic British Spy.
"The truth of it is that Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson, the producers, they allow me to get involved," he said."and it means so much to me."
While Craig thinks that Bond should be filming soon, the producers seem keen on continuing the franchise as well. According to CBS, the Broccolis, who have had producing rights since the first Bond film Dr. No, will continue to make Bond films as long as interest is still there.
"As long as audiences want to come see the movies, we'll make them," said co-producer Barbara Broccoli.
It seems like interest will remain for the time being. The Bond franchise is the longest running film series, and also one of the most lucrative. Ticket sales for the series have reached nearly $5 billion.
Skyfall is set to release nationwide November 9. This will mark Craig's third time playing James Bond.
