Daniel Craig is a goner and so is James Bond as you have recently known and loved him.
According to one of the series’ main producers, Barbara Broccoli, the next Bond flick will consist of a total “reinvention” of the character.
That said, a replacement for Craig has yet to be chosen and the next Bond movie is still two years away from even filming.
“There isn’t a script and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next film because, really, it’s a reinvention of Bond,” Broccoli told Deadline. “We’re reinventing who he is and that takes time.”
Craig, 54, played Bond for a final time in last year’s No Time To Die. He has played 007 in five films overall.
“I think we have decided that until No Time to Die has kind of had its run and Daniel has been able to, well, we’ve all been able to, reap the benefits of Daniel’s wonderful tenure, we’re not gonna think about or talk about anybody else, actors to play the role or storylines or anything,’ Broccoli said on a recent podcast. “We just wanna live in the moment, the present.”
