The rumor that Harry Types would be the subsequent James Bond is gathering steam. Daniel’s Craig’s last 007 film, No Time To Die has been within the can for nearly a yr, that means EON Productions and MGM have had a considerable period of time to line up his successor. Many names have been thrown into the hat, with the present frontrunner being Inception, The Darkish Knight Rises and Venom star Tom Hardy. However currently, gossip has sprung up round former One Path member Harry Types.
This is able to be a controversial selection, as Types is simply 26 and to this point, has just one main film credit score in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk. However he’s been hinting at a renewed deal with appearing over music for a while and final week refused to rule out enjoying 007.
Now, British betting website Ladbrokes has elevated the percentages of him taking the function from 100/1 to 25/1. This comes within the wake of tales apparently originating with Types’ mates saying that he’s in conferences with the Bond manufacturing crew and that it’s right down to a selection between him and one different actor.
In fact, even at 25/1, it’s nonetheless unlikely. By comparability, Hardy’s odds have gone from 8/1 to 1/3, which virtually makes him a lock. We’re not going to get an official announcement as to who’s getting into the tuxedo till after the discharge of No Time To Die, although, which leaves a very long time for gossip to construct up on condition that it arrives in April.
Personally, I feel Types is a bit younger and inexperienced to play James Bond, however it may be price it merely to see folks’s heads explode after they hear the information. I’d even be very pleased with Hardy within the function, who completely has the appearing chops to make the half his personal over the following few years. Nonetheless, for now, Daniel Craig is 007 and there’s yet another huge journey to bear.
