the next movie of james-bond would be several years away and it will be a reinvention of the franchise. Bárbara Broccoli, producer and responsible for everything that has to do with Bond, revealed that “at least two years” will pass before filming begins from the upcoming Agent 007 tape. In an interview with dead lineBroccoli said there is no rush and they are taking the time to line up the pieces.
The producer confirmed that there is no script and that they won’t write it until they decide what they’re going to do. “It’s a reinvention of Bond. We’re reinventing who he is and that takes time,” Broccoli said. “I’d say the shoot is at least two years away,” he mentioned.
The matriarch of the 007 universe made it clear that they are not looking for Daniel Craig’s successor either for the next series of movies. “We’re thinking where to go with him, we’re talking about it.”, she assured. After closing a cycle of 15 years with the film no time to dieCraig left his mark as one of the best to play James Bond.
His debut in Royal Casino it was a reinvention that left aside the secret agent who depended more on the gadgets that of his skills as a spy. The saga of Daniel Craig too marked a milestone in the franchise by integrating a character development. Bond’s childhood, the death of Vesper Lynd, Mr. White and SPECTER are intertwined in five films, something that had not been fully explored in previous times.
Henry Cavill could become the next James Bond
The next cycle will mark a reinvention of James Bond and some names to replace Daniel Craig begin to sound strong. One of the potential candidates is henry cavillwho is in an important part of his career thanks to The Witcher. Cavill is 3/1 in the odds to become James Bond. A commercial for Botanical Water even winks at the secret agent at various points.
Also on the list is Regé-Jean Page, who rose through the ranks thanks to The Bridgertons, although the actor does not consider that he has a chance. Sam Heughan, star in Outlander, is also a name that sounds among the candidates. The 42-year-old actor said he was interested in the role and if he landed it, he would be the second Scotsman to play James Bond, after Sean Connery.
In the list of names that have sounded in recent years are Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, John Boyega, Nicholas Hoult, or Tom Holland himself. Lashana Lynch, who plays Nomi in no time to diehas also been mentioned, although the actress considers that the audience is not prepared to see James Bond played by a woman of color.
Barbara Broccoli, who has the last word regarding the franchise, revealed some time ago that James Bond can be any color, but he will never be a woman. “I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are much more interesting than that,” the producer said.
The James Bond reboot is still in the works, so we’ll have to wait several months before we meet the candidate to become Agent 007.
