Rumors are just that. Rumors. They are murmurs about what could be rather than about what actually is. Since former James Bond actor, Daniel Craig decided he was retiring from the role – or rather after producers decided his day in the sun was done – rumors have been circulating concerning “who will be the next James Bond?” Today, one of the producers of the movie franchise sheds some new light on the topic.
As per ScreenRant, Barbara Broccoli, one of the producers of James Bond, has a disappointing update.
For years now, speculation over who will be the next actor to play James Bond has run rampant. Daniel Craig was the most recent performer to don the 007 codename, but 2021’s No Time to Die marked his swan song. Even before that film’s debut, the internet has been alight with rumors and theories about who will take on the part next, with names such as Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Idris Elba emerging as supposed favorites. However, few legitimate updates have come forward.
In an interview with Lad Bible, Broccoli has a rather disappointing update regarding the casting process for the next film, dubbed Bond 26. Some rumors have claimed that actors like Taylor-Johnson for the role. However, Broccoli has put such rumors to rest by confirming that the film isn’t as deep into development as previously thought. Check out her statement below:
“No, we haven’t even started casting yet. There isn’t even a script.”
