Juice channels have also joined the discussion. It is 2023, after all. The infamous Deuxmoi Instagram account reported late last year that Aaron Taylor-Johnson would have impressed Bond producer Barbara Broccoli during a secret audition. In fact, an announcement would follow in a few months.

Producer gives update

In an interview with LADBible, she was very clear about the casting process for the 26th Bond film. “No, we haven’t even started casting yet. There isn’t even a script yet,” Broccoli said. The film is simply not as far along as expected. The producers behind 007 already indicated last year that they are taking their time on the next chapter of the iconic franchise, and that’s now. has made it even clearer.

Last summer, Broccoli indicated that the movie would not be filmed for at least two years. So we’re talking about 2024. So a mid-to-late 2025 theatrical release may still fit the schedule. However, don’t be surprised if we don’t meet the new 007 until 2026. In other words: we’re going to see a great Avengers movie before the new James Bond.

It’s no fun being called James Bond, as this documentary proves


One of the reasons the casting for Daniel Craig’s successor is taking so long is the fact that Broccoli and co. not simply want to continue with the current formula. They want to completely reinvent James Bond, a new model for the next ten years or more. “It’s not just about casting an actor for a movie. Is about reinvention.” And that takes time. Broccoli stresses that they can’t start on the script until the team has determined what they want to do with the character.

James Bond has apparently gone back to the drawing board. For fans, that simply means they’ll have to be patient for some extra time. So we’ll have to make do with the barrage of rumors and speculation for a while. We already take speculation with a big grain of extra salt. To be continue!
