Skyfall producer talks '60s feel

Michael G Wilson compares new film to Goldfinger


Skyfall producer Michael G Wilson has been talking to People 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.

      Can't wait for this one.. it's a shame they are completely doing away with plot lines that were running through both Casino Royale and Quantum but I think this could be the best bond yet.

      I know I'm in the minority but Sean Connery was my least favorite Bond. There was just nothing likable about him. He had all cockiness with none of the charm or charisma.

      Roger Moore for me. His eyebrows alone could out act Daniel Craig.

      Timothy Dalton or George Lazenby for me- Dalton because he's been the most badass, Lazenby because I like an underdog and really enjoy Secret Service :p
