When the new James Bond movie is also announced along with the concept that it will be the last time we will see Daniel Craig as the secret agent, of course one of the recurring themes is knowing who the new Bond will be. Although speculations from fans and the media seem to already have the entire cast assembled, the reality is that the creatives behind the franchise are not at all concerned about this matter.
Previously, the producers of the saga had confessed that the number one priority right now is the premiere of No time to die and celebrate the passing of Daniel Craig as one of the most mythical characters in British culture. In that order of ideas, the producer Barbara Broccoli remains in the same line and now ensures that the issue is even closed and away from the table, at least until 2022.
With the release of the new James Bond film so recent, the production company and other talent on the team are unstoppable when it comes to interviews and press conferences. At such an event for BBC radio (via), the producer confessed that they have not yet made the decision regarding the next secret agent and are not even interested in having that talk. It will probably happen next year.
“We’re not talking about that at all,” said Broccoli. «We want Daniel to have his moment of celebration. Already next year we will start talking about the future.
What the producer did say is that they are indeed very grateful to have found Craig and made him part of this narrative. Daniel came to character with Royal Casino in 2006 and followed Pierce Brosnan. Thus, fifteen years later the actor will finally say goodbye to the character.
«We could see that [Daniel] He was reluctant to do it because he knew it would change his life, which obviously happened, ”he said. “It has changed his life, but it has not changed him. What it has allowed us to do with the franchise is really explore Bond’s emotional life and delve into his persona. The complexity and conflicts that occur within that character.
At the moment the shortlist to find a substitute has been handled with three main names. Henry Cavill was first mentioned as the leading candidate and favorite of the Bond producers. Also the British sensation we met on the show Bridgerton, Regé-Jean Page, would be a suitable option and also applauded by many. And finally the unexpected, but equally attractive option would be George McKay, a youthful option that will serve the purposes of rejuvenating the character and the franchise.
While all this happens No time to die, Daniel Craig’s final contribution to one of the longest-running film franchises of all time, will hit screens on September 30.
The entry There will be no new James Bond until next year was first published in Cinema PREMIERE.
