Daniel Craig has reportedly been hailed by film boss Barbara Broccoli as the best ever James Bond.
The producer, who has worked on every Bond movie since Octopussy in 1983, said she was eager to keep her star in the role.
"He's so gorgeous. Ask any woman, he's the most gorgeous man in the world," the Daily Mirror quoted her as saying.
"Brilliant actor, and he is the greatest Bond ever. I'm not letting him go, not for a long time."
Her co-producer Michael G Wilson added: "He's stuck in the role for a while."
Barbara was speaking on US TV after Skyfall director Sam Mendes revealed he will not be returning to direct the next Bond film.
Skyfall has been the most successful 007 film to date, taking over 1.1 billion dollars at the box office.
