After Dying can wait, James Bond fans are impatiently awaiting the new face of 007! The producers of the legendary saga have raised the subject, even speculating on a shooting date.
On October 6, Daniel Craig put away James Bond’s tuxedo for good after a last mission in Dying Can Wait.
Since then, speculation has been rife about the next face of Her Majesty’s super spy. Who will succeed Daniel Craig, the actor who dynamited the 007 myth?
According Deadline, we will have to be very patient before knowing the new James Bond. During an evening organized by the British Film Institute, the historical producers of the saga, Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, were honored.
They took the opportunity to discuss the future of the franchise. “No one is rushing. We’re figuring out where to go with Bond. We’re talking about it in detail.
There’s no script yet, and we won’t have one until we decide on the approach for this next movie, because it’s really going to be a reimagining of Bond.”said Barbara Broccoli.
We reinvent the character and that takes time. I would say that the shooting will not start for two years.
“We are reinventing the character and it takes time. I would say that the shooting will not start for two years”she concluded.
In all likelihood, the producers are trying to circumvent the problem related to the outcome of Dying can wait,
in which James Bond passed the weapon on the left
A daring decision which would oblige the future authors to crowned pirouettes in the event of direct continuation. This is why such an option does not really seem feasible.
Therefore, the most likely hypothesis would be a younger 007, all inspired by the novels YoungBond, centered on the beginnings of the secret agent. These books were a great success in England.
George MacKay, 30, hero of 1917 by Sam Mendes, is already very interested in donning the costume of this rejuvenated hero.
If the shooting of this feature film does not start for another two years, as Barbara Broccoli assures us, the next James Bond on the big screen would not be visible before 2025 at best. Arm yourself with patience!
As a reminder, Dying Can Wait grossed $774 million worldwide. The goose with the golden eggs is therefore not ready to be abandoned.
