Casting A New James Bond Is Much Tougher Than You Might Guess, And Barbara Broccoli Opens Up About The Biggest Challenge

In the gap we currently occupy between eras of James Bond movies, the uncertainty of who will be the next 007 is going to hang in the air for some time. Producer Barbara Broccoli has said as much, as she’s mentioned that since Bond 26 won’t start production until 2024, so the casting of a new Commander Bond is still on hold. As it turns out, casting a new lead for this legendary franchise is a lot tougher than you might guess, and Broccoli has recently opened up about the biggest challenge. 

Just as the rumors have suggested, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking for a long haul actor to inhabit 007. However, the proposed reinvention of James Bond is also a concern that plays as a part of the equation. Speaking with Variety, Broccoli discussed the complications of casting the next Bond thusly:

That’s why, when people go, ‘Oh, who are you going to get?’ it’s not just about casting an actor for a film. It’s about a reinvention, and ‘Where are we taking it? What do we want to do with the character?’ And then, once we figure that out, who’s the right person for that particular reinvention? With [Craig], when we had the conversation at this very table about, you know, [whether he was] going to do it, he said, ‘Well, I’m going to do it. I really want to be a part of it, the whole thing.’ And he lived to regret that. But it’s a big commitment. It’s not just showing up for a couple of months of filming.
