James Bond franchise producer, Barbara Broccoli, gives a disappointing update on Daniel Craig’s replacement as the titular character. Originally created in 1953 by British author Ian Fleming, James Bond surprised audiences around the world with his first feature film, dr. noin 1962. Starring Sean Connery as MI6’s Agent 007, the character would eventually be portrayed by six actors in 25 films over the course of 60 years.


The latest entry in the multi-generational action-adventure franchise, No time to die, turned out to be the last for Craig to star in a total of five films in 15 years. The thrilling finale ended with Bond sacrificing himself and leaving behind a daughter. Broccoli and co-producer, Michael G.

EW I caught up with Broccoli, who has a disappointing update on Craig’s replacement as James Bond. Although the producer previously indicated that they will start their search this year, Broccoli explains that they have yet to discuss the future of the film series. Now she claims the search for a new Bond will begin in 2023. Read below what Broccoli said.

“We haven’t started the hunt yet. We’re going to sit down and try to figure out where the Bond series is going, and we need to do that first, to get a sense of that, before we start casting for the part. So We’ll think about that next year.”

Who are the best options for playing Bond?

The postponement of the search for Craig’s replacement as 007 will certainly be disappointing for long-time fans of the film series. A break can be good for the franchise, though, as it gives audiences time to reflect on what Craig brought to the character and gives Broccoli and Wilson time to recharge instead of rushing to the next installment. However, instead of immediately rebooting the franchise, there has been speculation about the continuation of the Craig saga through spin-off films that may star No time to die’s new 007 agent Nomi, played by The woman king‘s Lashana Lynch, or rookie, yet incredibly skilled, CIA agent Paloma played by blonde Ana de Armas.

As the Bond producers mentioned earlier, a reinvention of the character is likely to be needed to keep the franchise feeling fresh. A new young actor, capable of playing such a weighted role, must live up to the expectations of the expanded film series. Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s Tom Holland en Game of ThronesRichard Madden was entertained by fans as possible choices to take on the mantle of the next 007. Avengers: Endgame directors have publicly supported Bridgerton‘s RegĂ©-Jean Page after casting him in their latest movie, the gray man, citing his charisma. With the next film in the franchise likely years away, fans can only speculate and debate which star will be in the running next. James Bond.
