After the release of ‘Spectre’ in 2015, Daniel Craig said he would rather cut his wrists than be Bond again. However, in 2021, the British actor also acted in Bond’s 25th film ‘No Time to Die’. It must be ‘with the wrist’. Later in an interview, Craig said, “Bond” film puts a lot of pressure on the body, that’s why he didn’t want to play the role of this popular spy. But for various reasons, he agreed for the last time. But with Craig’s chapter as Bond coming to an end, the producers are in a new danger. They have gone to great lengths to find a new ‘bond’. Infinite curiosity of fans, who is the new James Bond?
Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson said they have not yet found a suitable bond. Next October is the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film. As many fans are hoping, the new Bond actor may be announced. However, according to Variety, the search for a new actor for the world-famous character is still in the early stages.
After Craig’s reluctance to play Bond after ‘Spectre’, another British actor Idris Elba’s name came up for the role. Whether he is playing Bond or not is a question the actor has heard time and again when facing the media over the past few years. However, in a recent interview, Idris said that he does not see himself as Bond when he looks in the mirror.
The film’s producers recently spoke about Idris’s potential as Bond. “He’s great, like broccoli, we love Idris,” Wilson said. Listening to their statements, it seems that Idris Elba’s role as Bond is almost certain. But the trouble is that the producers want someone for 10 to 12 years to play James Bond. “The thing is, we want someone for several years,” Broccoli said. He has to be committed for 10 to 12 years.
Taking on someone new as James is now largely on hold due to this ‘long-term commitment’. Producers said that even if casting someone to act in a Bond film is just like any other movie, the most important thing is to stay with the franchise for a long time. Only new bonds can be found if everything matches perfectly.
