One of the James Bond franchise’s producers, Barbara Broccoli, has some disheartening casting news. The next actor to play James Bond has been the subject of much rumor for many years. The most recent actor to use the 007 code was Daniel Craig, but 2021’s No Time to Die served as his final performance.
The internet has been ablaze with speculations and predictions about who would play the role next even before that movie comes out, with names like Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Idris Elba rising as putative favorites. But, there haven’t been many verifiable updates.
In a conversation with LADbible, Broccoli provides a very depressing update on the selection process for the upcoming movie, codenamed Bond 26. Actors like Taylor-Johnson, according to certain speculations, have emerged as front-runners for the part. But, Broccoli has dispelled these reports by stating that the movie isn’t as far along in the production process as originally believed. Check out what she said below:
