With Daniel Craig’s tenure as the world’s most famous British spy comes to a close, producers of the franchise have said that they still don’t know who will be filling Craig’s shoes.
Rumours have been rife in recent weeks when reports surfaced that English actor Tom Hardy had been appointed 007.
However, this was quickly quashed when Bond producer Barbara Broccoli told Total Film that no decision had been made as yet.
“I always say: you can only be in love with one person at a time. Once the film’s come out, then some time will pass, and then we’ll have to get on to the business of the future,” Broccoli confirmed.
“But for now, we just cannot think about anything beyond Daniel.”
Talk of who will take on the role next has been getting louder and louder as the release of Daniel Craig’s final film approaches, with many asking whether or not producers will break with 60 years of tradition in casting.
“He doesn’t need to be a white man. Not as far as I’m concerned,” Broccoli says, although we shouldn’t expect to see a female 007 anytime soon.
“We should create roles for women, not just turn a man into a woman.”
No Time To Die’s release date has been pushed back multiple times due to the pandemic, it has now been penciled in for April 2021.
