LONDON, March 22 (UPI) -- It looks like "Casino Royale" star Daniel Craig is not going to be a one-stop James Bond.

Producer Barbara Broccoli told Wednesday's Mirror they are so happy with the new Agent 007, work has already begun on a sequel.

"We're in the early stages," Broccoli said. "It's an original story but it's going to continue part of the story in this film."

"Casino Royale" was Ian Fleming's first Bond book, but the last to become an official Bond screen adventure. Broccoli acquired the film rights to the book in 2000.

When asked if she would consider remaking a Sean Connery or Roger Moore movie with the new blond Bond, Broccoli slyly replied the idea had not been discussed, but "never say never."
