2021’s No Time to Die marked an epic finale for Daniel Craig’s James Bond characterization. He redefined 007 in the modern era, by delivering a remarkable performance, extraordinary action sequences and tons of panache! After his departure from the franchise, fans have been eager to find out who will next take up this iconic role with such style.
It appears that the gossip circle has been circulating many possible contenders for the role, including Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, Jack O’Connell, Harry Styles and Regé-Jean Page. Nevertheless it is all conjecture as Barbara Broccoli assured when questioned by LADBible at BAFTAs’ red carpet: casting hasn’t even kicked off yet!
“No, we haven’t even started casting yet. There isn’t even a script.”
We are certain that they will opt for casting a younger actor. Craig was close to 40 when he acted in Casino Royale and 51 at the time of making No Time To Die, with his character showing signs of aging related to all his action-filled activities. The Bond makers would most likely wish to have someone sign on for four movies consecutively; this being said, considering the franchise’s slow production rate–they’re essentially searching for an individual who can commit over 15 years!
We guess that the next Bond will have a different story compared to its predecessor, so we may see them cast an actor in their early 30s who is similar to Connery. As of now, however, it seems like we’re still far away from getting more information about this movie – but as always…James Bond will return.
