James Bond producers are reportedly looking for a younger 007.
According to Ross King The search for the next James Bond is currently underway, but producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson have reportedly already written off 42-year-old Sam Heughan.
“The latest rumor — and in some ways it’s very true — is, quite simply, that the Bond producers are looking for a younger Bond,” he explains. Lorraine. “Probably someone in their thirties.”
“At the end of the day, you want someone who is Bond for the next three movies,” Ross explains. “For the franchise, they want someone who wears it just like Daniel Craig.”
Another 15 years is a lot to expect from the next 007, but not impossible. Especially if they are still looking in the younger category. There’s another bump in the road – 007 should be long.
“The other thing they say is that Bond has to be taller than 178cm,” Ross says.
Craig himself was 178cm, while the other Bonds were a lot taller. Due to the search for a taller, younger Bond, many favorites are dropped.
Tom Hardy, for example, is already 44 years old and much smaller. In fact, Idris Elba is already 49 and Henry Cavill may also be too old at 39.
Who do you think the next James Bond will be? We wait and keep a close eye on the news, although we seem to have to say goodbye to a number of big favorites.
