It’s been a year since No Time to Die, Daniel Craig’s last James Bond movie, but Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer still hasn’t found a replacement. In an interview with Variety, franchise producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael J. Wilson declaredthat they are still looking for the right actor. And this search may take several more years.
The fact is that the performer of the role of a charming spy must be ready for long-term cooperation for 10-12 years. That is why the 50-year-old Idris Elba, who has been offered the role of Bond more than once, refuses the studio’s offers.
When we find a “new Bond”, it will immediately mean that this role should be devoted to 10-12 years. Idris Elba might be thinking, “Do I even need this?” Because not everyone wants it. After all, we somehow managed to agree with Daniel Craig, and he was then a little over 30.
Earlier, TV presenter Ross King said that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer is looking for a tall and young actor. For example, Henry Cavill is suitable for the studio’s requests, but the film company will certainly turn to a lesser-known artist.
