After Daniel Craig left the role in James Bond 007: No Time to Die, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are looking for a new Bond actor for Bond 26. In an interview, they now explained why many stars do not or do not want to meet expectations. The new actor should stay there for at least a decade.
10 years of James Bond: 007 makers explain what they expect from the new actor
Idris Elba, fan favorite for the part for years, recently expressed aversion to the 007 role (via The Shop). In an interview with Variety, the producers explained their understanding of this. Broccoli said:
The problem is that it will still be a while before filming starts. And when we cast Bond the actor has to take on the role for 10-12 years. [Elba] surely thinks: “Do I really want that?” Not everyone wants that. Convincing Daniel Craig was difficult enough. Many would find it exciting to slip into the role for a single Bond film. But that’s not how it works.
Many cast members developed in the 007 story a fierce dislike of the extensive demands of the role. Sean Connery was only persuaded to return for a then-impossible sum of $1.25 million (via Screenrant). However, the commitment for a whole decade is nothing unusual. After all, Craig played the British agent over a period of 16 years.
