Lashana Lynch was spotted on set as the next 007 for Daniel Craig’s final James Bond film No Time To Die.
While Daniel Craig continues to shoot his final outing as James Bond in No Time To Die, Lashana Lynch is ready to become the next 007 in a brand new set photo. The location of the set looks similar to recent images of Daniel Craig’s James Bond and Lea Seydoux’s Madeleine Swann. Rumors swirled back in July that Lashana Lynch’s role in No Time To Die was to pull James Bond out of retirement, and she would become the new 007 in a “pivotal” moment. Scriptwriter Phoebe Waller-Bridge then played coy to THR about the rumor saying “The whole thing has potential to birth new iconic characters all the time.”
So while Lashana Lynch wouldn’t be playing the new James Bond, she would be the new 007. The photo shows Lashana Lynch as the next 007 ready for action with an intimidating assault rifle strapped to her thigh and several extra clips of ammunition on her belt. Lashana Lynch’s character looks like she’s got a huge fight ahead of her in No Time To Die, one that will likely pull Daniel Craig’s James Bond briefly out of retirement. Take a look at the set photo of Lashana Lynch as the next 007 in No Time To Die below.
Ladies and gents, your new 007.
