The new James Bond movie has been faced with a huge set back due to talks that Daniel Craig could be taking on the new movie himself before handing over the role. Daniel Craig fans, it’s time to get excited as I bring you the latest scoop.
The most muscular Bond could be talked into a return to the character for one last time it seems before giving up the tuxedo and martinis for good. Although we know the new 00-agent is busy getting some serious thought and don’t be deceived–the new Spy agent is still set to be chosen.
But the next James Bond film will not hit cinemas until late 2018, according to reports, so there’s a chance Craig could be back for one more outing. The delay is due to producer Barbara Broccoli working on two other films first, and also because she allegedly wants time to convince Craig to sign back up. After all, he is the best James Bond we have ever had.
A reliable source told The Sun: “Barbara is not going to be rushed into a Bond and wants to work on two other film projects next year. It will give her time to work out a script and try to convince Daniel to maybe return.”
Broccoli is currently in London making Film Stars Don’t Die with actor Jamie Bell, who was at one point one of the favourites to be the next 007. Daniel’s fans have been devastated due to him hanging up his gun but has proven a popular choice for Bond fans and the producers want him back one more time
Bookmakers William Hill now have American Hustle star Jack Huston, nephew of actress Anjelica Huston, in the lead for the race to become the next Bond, with odds of 3/1. Although rumors were that Aiden Turner was favourite the stakes have quickly changed.
One man who is constantly being rumoured as the next bond is Idris Elba. Elba revealed the truth about rumours he is to be the next James Bond however: the British star thinks he’s “too old” to play the part now.
In a move that could finally put an end to speculation the actor could take over the role of 007 from Daniel Craig , Idris has revealed there have been no talks between himself and Bond producers, and he thinks, at 43, he’s too old to portray the daredevil British secret service agent.
What do you think? Should we all be excited?
