"Rumours intensify (again) that Daniel Craig is stepping down as James Bond, as he makes a big commitment to a new TV project."

"Craig recently reprised his role as 007 in the latest James Bond film Spectre but has yet to commit to anther Bond movie amid hints on his part that he is likely done playing the famous spy and amid speculation about his possible successor in the role."
from http://deadline.com/2016/06/purity-limi ... 201765269/
Current drama whether Craig will return for a fifth turn as the famous fictional spy reminds me of the drama surrounding Brosnan after what turned out to be his final appearance as Bond in Die Another Day

Regardless, it doesn't look like Mendes is returning to direct (he probably should've left after Skyfall anyhow)

I'm betting Craig is done. He looked so bored and uninspired in the last movie, and the final product reflected it.
Baaaaaaaaa!

After watching TH in the night manager, I think he would kill it as BOND.

This.
The Night Manager was a great mini series with Tom and Elizabeth. It would be great if Tom plays Bond, and Elizabeth as the "Bond girl"

Like many James Bond fans that will never except Idris Elba because he is black. I'm somewhat old school and have always suspected Tom Hiddleston as a gay actor waiting to come out. If he is I don't think I can accept him because Bond has always been a true ladies man. However, at the same time Hugh Jackman was also suspected for being gay and we all seem to have accepted him as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise.

BTW, Happy Pride month!!!

Why can we expect all those other guys except Idris Elba? What's wrong with Elba? If America and the world can accept a black president, surely we can accept a black James Bond....

I agree with you but to be devil's advocate. Obama won by a a little bit, mean a big chunk of the US population voted against him (which isn't as bad as Canada where most elections more people voted against the PM than for the PM). That's fiarly divisive. Film companies want to make money. They don't like to make moves that might alienate a chunk of their viewers. They want as many people in the seats as possible.

I'd like to see Idris give it a try. I'll pay to see that. But I'm guess there's a sizable portion that wouldn't. Tough call for a movie company to make.

In North America yes, a Black James bond would be accepted. But certainly not in Russia, eastern Europe, and Asia where attitudes to blacks are different than here.

Remember, James Bond make most of its money outside of the US. It may box office disaster. Do the producers want to take such a chance? These movie makers are not fools you now. Do they want to throw away the $200+Million cost of a Bond film?
Have a nice day!

I don't really care either way, but I don't see why we need a black or female James Bond. If there's such a demand for it, just create another spy franchise and let them run with it. I get that Hollywood just wants to bank on proven properties but all this debate about a black/white/female/male James Bond is just so boring. Just make a damn good Bond film like Casino Royale and I'd be happy.

Loki as James Bond? maybe... i guess...

I've always thought Michael Fassbender would be the next Bond
but then he is getting a lot of publicity as Magneto

Many people online think Luke Evans should be the next bond, he does fit a suit very well
