James Bond is coming — yet perhaps not in the manner you recall him.
New James Bond
Daniel Craig hung up his sleeve buttons after the much-postponed No Time to Die, and the following 007 might be very unique.
Bond maker Barbara Broccoli let Deadline know that the following Bond film will start creation in around two years “since it’s a rehash of Bond.”
Concerning who will star as 007 — with stars including Idris Elba, Luke Evans, Tom Hardy, Sam Heughan, Tom Hiddleston, Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page and others reputed to be thought of — Broccoli kept mum.
“No one’s in the running,” she demanded. “We’re sorting out where to go with [Bond], we’re talking that through. There isn’t a content and we can’t think of one until we conclude how we will move toward the following film on the grounds that, truly, it’s a reexamination of Bond. We’re reevaluating what his identity is and that requires some investment.”

So when will the new James Bond at last move toward front of a camera?
Broccoli notes, “I’d say that recording is something like two years away.”
While nobody is formally in the running, late surveying shows Outlander star Heughan leading the pack with the film opening up to the world.
