A new report has revealed that Aaron Taylor-Johnson recently had a meeting for the role of James Bond. Puck brings word that the actor sat down with James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli to discuss the possibility of playing the character, who is being recast after the Daniel Craig starrer No Time to Die. Their meeting is said to have gone well.

Daniel Craig made his debut as 007 in 2006’s Casino Royale and then reprised the role in four more movies. In addition to No Time to Die, which earned $774.2 million at the worldwide box office during the COVID-19 pandemic, Craig also played the superspy in Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, Spectre.

The future of James Bond

No Time To Die marked the end of Daniel Craig’s tenure as James Bond, with his incarnation of 007 meeting his demise. The shock ending brought the latest Bond era to a pretty definitive conclusion. Now the hunt is on for a new Bond as producers prepare to reimagine the franchise.

James Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli have yet to find Daniel Craig’s 007 successor the two recently teased that he would be a “thirty-something” year old actor. Craig carried the franchise for 15 years, so the next 007 actor is expected to play the character for multiple movies.
