Search for Daniel Craig’s James Bond replacement to start until next
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has revealed the search for a new James Bond not only hasn’t started, but it won’t begin until 2022.
Metro reports that Barbara told Radio 4’s Today show that they are “not thinking about it at all”.
‘We want Daniel to have his time of celebration. Next year we’ll start thinking about the future, she added.’
The whole world has been dissecting who will replace Daniel Craig as James Bond for years, but the iconic spy movie franchise’s producer has insisted they will be holding off finding a new 007 to replace Daniel, who will take his Aston Martin for one more spin in No Time To Die, until at least next year.
So far, everyone from Idris Elba to Richard Madden to Rege-Jean Page has been rumoured to be taking over as Bond.
Last week, Barbara revealed Daniel only agreed to take over from Pierce Brosnan if he could be involved in ‘every part of the process’.
The 53-year-old actor took some ‘persuading’ to take on the iconic role, because he knew it would change his life forever.
Speaking on the No Time To Die: The Official James Bond Podcast, Barbara, the daughter of late Bond producer Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli, said of casting Daniel: ‘The big problem was that he didn’t want to do it, because I think he thought it was going to change his life dramatically and he was doing extremely well as an actor and liked the challenges of that.
