Since Daniel Craig had announced back in the 2019s that Barbara Broccoli’s “No Time to Die” would be his fifth and final film as James Bond, rumours are smoking over the horizon on who might take his place, as producer Barbara Broccoli said over the weekend that a next “James Bond” film would take some time.
Whispers are spiralling around Hollywood over recent days that potential replacement of Daniel Craig could be Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill, Idris Elba or “Euphoria” star Jacob Elordi, however, the Bond franchise producer Barbara Broccoli was quoted saying that there might be delay in finding a perfect replacement of Craig.
Broccoli to take some time before Craig’s replacement is announced
Speaking in an interview with a press agency at the opening night of “Macbeth” at Longacre Theatre in Broadway, Broccoli said, “It’s a big decision.
It’s not just casting a role. It’s about a whole rethink about where we’re going. I’m just here celebrating one of the greatest actors on the planet, Daniel Craig”. Meanwhile, as Broccoli continued to praise the international spy film “James Bond” star Craig, the 61-year-old American film producer from Los Angeles said, “He has an amazing range and he can do anything.
He’s just the greatest actor ever, and I think audiences will be thrilled by this portrayal because he’s funny, he’s dangerous, he’s all the things you would want. Together — he and Ruth — it’s just… The chemistry between the two of them, the volatility, it’s like fireworks and it’s fun ...
(chemistry) ... and there’s lots of blood”. “Daniel is such a great company leader,” Broccoli said. “He kept the spirit and the momentum going, because at one time we had 11 of the actors out, including Daniel, so he bounced back and Ruth is incredible… We have a great show and I’m just so pleased that things are looking up,” added Broccoli.
