It will be 60 years since we can discover the adventures of james bond on the big screen. Each time, a new actor comes to bring a different breath. But it seems that for after Daniel Craig, it’s still a little different.
A new James Bond era
Indeed, Barbara Broccoli who is the current producer of the James Bond films since 1987 and the film Killing is not Playing was able to speak at the microphone of the magazine Deadline to talk about the future of the saga.
No one is rushing. We are looking for where to go with Bond. We talk about it in detail. There is no script yet, and we will have one only when we have decided on the approach of this next film, because it will really be a reinvention of Bond.
We reinvent the character and that takes time. I would say that the shooting will not start for two years.
The next film will be the 26th in the saga and the actor will be the seventh to play the character of James Bond. It remains to be seen what the word “reinvent” means in the mouth of a producer. Because very clearly, Craig’s Bond is already a reinvention compared to the old James Bond. Some viewers even accuse the last film of being a little soft and removing everything that makes the charm of the original person in its excesses (alcohol, romance, cold humor, etc.)
Idril Elba as Bond?
There are many rumors on the subject, we talked about the potential presence of a black actor for a while, mentioning in particular the name of the very talented Idris Elba. It is clear that for the moment, nothing seems decided. Let’s just hope that this reinvention doesn’t overturn what makes up the substance of the character.
