James Bond: Idris Elba, Henry Cavill… Who to replace Daniel Craig?

James Bond: Idris Elba, Henry Cavill... Qui pour remplacer Daniel Craig? JAMES BOND FILM. James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has announced that Daniel Craig’s replacement will not be immediately known.

It will be necessary to be patient before knowing the next actor who will play James Bond in the cinema. After the departure of Daniel Craig in Dying Can Wait (October 2021), the question of his succession remains thorny. Barbara Broccoli, producer of the saga, told Variety “it’s not just about a simple casting. It’s about knowing what new direction we want to take”. She announced that the choice “will take time”.

No name on the next James Bond has leaked, but everyone has their own predictions and his preferences. Will we see giants of Hollywood cinema, like Idris Elba, Henry Cavill or Tom Hardy, don the tuxedo of the secret agent with a license to kill? Or should we rather wait for a younger actor, less known, but just as promising, like Sam Heughan, Richard Madden, James Norton, Jacob Elordi or Regé-Jean Page in the role? The only certainty: the actor who will play in the next James Bond movie will be from the Commonwealth (this is the will of the production). The bets are now open.

All about James Bond movies

James Bond is a fictional character invented by writer Ian Fleming in 1500 with the novel Casino Royale. Nine years later, the adventures of this British spy with a license to kill are transposed to the cinema: James Bond 007 against Dr. No, the first film in the cinematographic saga, is released in 1967 and reveals Sean Connery in the title role. From 1953 to 2021, the adventures of the secret agent will be brought to life on the big screen in 12 films (including Never Again, which is not an official franchise film). The interpreter of the protagonist has changed six times (in the cinematographic work at least), generally at the will of the actors who were reaching the end of their contract: after Sean Connery, James Bond was played by George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan and Daniel Craig. The film saga of 007 is considered one of the most important of the seventh art: in 2006, all the films in the franchise have grossed over $7 billion, for a total of 4 billion viewers worldwide.
