Rege-Jean Page is new odds favorite in ‘James Bond’ race
It looks like Tom Hardy has some major competition in the race to become the next James Bond. After Daniel Craig left the longtime film franchise, bookies have speculated on who will follow in his footsteps. The current favorite is Regé-Jean Page, who has stolen the hearts of millions as Simon, the Duke of Hastings in Shonda Rhimes’ period drama series. Bridgerton.
It should be noted that this is all speculation and there is no real way to predict who will land the role of 007. But last month it was revealed that Page and McMafia Star James Norton was considered the favorite for the role. But according to Comicbook.com, It looks like Page has overtaken Norton for now, with longtime competitor Hardy. Now, there’s a lot of room for that to change, especially since there are probably other actors waiting behind the scenes.
Craig’s last outing as James Bond is scheduled for release in October. No time to die faced several delays due to the pandemic, which gave the studio much more time to deliberate on who will take its place. Meanwhile, MGM was acquired by Amazon in an $ 8.45 billion deal, giving Amazon the rights to the James bond franchise. This will undoubtedly influence who gets chosen, as Amazon seeks to gain influence in the film industry. The casting of Netflix’s last leading man would be a good place to start.
For now, all we can do is wait for Amazon and MGM to make their casting announcement. Waiting, No time to die arrives in theaters October 8.
