It looks like rumors that the torch will be passed to a new 007 in "No Time To Die" aren’t true as the franchise’s producer revealed that a search won’t begin for a new actor to play James Bond until 2022.
After many delays posed by the coronavirus pandemic, Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as the world-famous spy character will finally debut on Oct. 8. Many speculated that the film would see Craig’s version of the character pass on the 007 moniker to a new character, possibly a woman, before the credits roll.
However, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s "Today," Bond producer Barbara Broccoli revealed that "No Time To Die" will focus less on the future and more on bidding a fond farewell to the man who has brought Bond to life since 2006.
"We’re not thinking about it at all," she said (via The Hollywood Reporter). "We want Daniel to have his time of celebration. Next year we’ll start thinking about the future."
