Barbara Broccoli (62) hat in an interview with the US industry portal “Deadline” Fans have given little hope that a new “James Bond” film could make it to the big screen anytime soon. The producer of the hit franchise said it will be “at least two years” before filming begins on the next 007 film. The search for an actor to replace Daniel Craig (54) has not even begun because “a reinvention of Bond” is in development.
Barbara Broccoli: “It takes time”
No one is in the race so far, Broccoli explained. “We think about where to go with him, we talk it through.” There is no script yet and “we can’t come up with one until we’ve decided how we want to approach the next film,” said the producer . “We’re reinventing who he is, and that takes time.”
Recently, the “James Bond” producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson (80) were honored by Prince William (40) with the Order of Knights CBE. The royal was “unfortunately busy, but he would be the perfect candidate”, joked Broccoli, according to The Independent.
In recent months there has been countless speculation about a potential successor to the role of the secret agent. Names such as Regé-Jean Page (34), Henry Cavill (39), Aidan Turner (39) as well as Michael Fassbender (45) and Tom Hardy (44) were mentioned. Daniel Craig quit MI6 after five films after No Time To Die.
