Eon Productions released the latest James Bond movie, “No Time to Die”, in October 2021. It was the 25th James Bond movie. This movie also marks the end of Daniel Craig’s tenure as Agent 007. James Blond has been retired. Money Maker considers the possibility of a new direction for Bond film franchise with veteran Eon Productions (the company which primarily produces all Bond films), producer Barbara Broccoli, and Money Maker thinks about who will ask for the famous martini.
There are betting odds, just like any other guessing game. Sites like US-Bookies and Oddschecker show that there are some candidates who appear to be very likely to occur.
Idris Elba is a long-known name that has been popping up in fancasts for years. But, it seems like he might have missed the boat at age 49. Craig is five years older than Elba, who was the MI6 agent for fifteen-years. Although every Bond actor has a different tenure, Elba choreographing action in his 60s may look worse than Liam Neeson still making Taken films.
Lashana Lynch gives the number “007” to No Time to Die to Nomi Lynch, an agent who plays Nomi at the end of No Time to Die. It is an unexpected twist, but it is unlikely that it will stick. Broccoli stated that Bond films have not passed the torch to a female lead and that Bond movies will continue without a female lead.
Henry Cavill is another name to consider. Cavill was just twenty-one when he was first screen-tested for Bond. After Craig was given the role, Insider reports that Cavill was told that his body was not strong enough to play Bond. Nearly twenty years later, Cavill is in great shape and has appeared in many spy films. Cavill starred as CIA agents in Guy Ritchie’s film “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” And Christopher McQuarrie’s film “Mission: Impossible – Fallout.” He will also be playing an amnesia-struck spy in Apple TV+’s movie “Argylle,” due to release later in the year.
No matter what website it is, Rege Jean-Page is the top name on the list. He was the star actor of Bridgerton, a Netflix period drama. However, he did not return for season 2. According to reports, he has been in contact with Marvel Studios about a possible role in a future movie. It could or might not be a long commitment depending on the role.
“Well, out of all the things that you can read about yourself online, this is one of the most pleasant and flattering. Jean-Page said, “But I take it and leave as it is.”
Jean-Page isn’t a sure thing, but there are other notable names, such as Jacob Elordi and Tom Hardy, who have been linked to the role.
