Who Will Play James Bond Next? "Anything Is Possible" Producer Says
"Who knows what the future will bring."
Daniel Craig is signed up to play James Bond at least one more time in the upcoming 25th 007 movie that is due for release in November 2019. But who might play the super-spy after Craig retires from the role? That remains to be seen, but now series producer Barbara Broccoli has suggested that aren't ruling anyone out. Speaking to The Daily Mail, Broccoli said "anything is possible" when it comes to who might play 007 next. She said this in response to a question about if the next 007 actor could be a woman or black.
"These films tend to reflect the times so we always try to push the envelope a little bit," she said. 'Anything is possible. Right now it's Daniel Craig, and I'm very happy with Daniel Craig, but who knows what the future will bring?"
The 25th Bond movie already has a release date of November 8, 2019, but an official title or director remains unknown. In October 2015, Craig said if he were to play Bond again, it would "only be for the money." A year later, a report claimed that Craig was offered $150 million to star in the next two Bond movies.
Craig has played the British super-spy four times already, in the movies Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre. Bond 25, or whatever the movie ends up being called, could be Craig's last time playing 007. "I think this is it. I just want to go out on a high note," Craig said last year. "I can't wait."
