When will the next James Bond appear?
Dying Can Wait, the last James Bond, was released in France on October 6, 2021. The next one with a new actor to succeed Daniel Craig should arrive around 2025 or 2026.
Opus producer Barbara Broccoli emphasized that with the next film 007, she and her team want to take the time to get things right. They want to completely reinvent the saga and create new bases for this iconic secret agent with devastating charm.
« Nobody rushes. We’re looking at where Bond is headed, we’re talking about it at length. There’s no script yet, and we won’t have one until we’ve decided on the approach of the next film because it’s really going to be a reimagining of Bond. We’re reinventing it, and that takes time. I would say filming won’t start for another two years. ‘ the producer assures.
Rumors about Daniel Craig’s successor are spreading like wildfire. Among the contenders for the emblematic role, three names return in force: Tom Hardy, Idriss Elba and Henri Cavill. Still, younger actors are showing real competition to these mature actors, including René-Jean Page, the sex symbol star of season one Bridgerton Chronicles and George Mackay from 1917. However, since the next James Bond won’t be out until 2025 or 2026, the list of contenders could continue to grow over time. Maybe even with actresses to break the codes of this mythical saga…
On the production side of the next James Bond, British actress and creator of Fleabag Phoebe Wallers-Bridge is said to be in talks to produce the next work. She would be the competitor of Denis Villeneuve, the director of Dune, who would like to direct an episode of the saga.
