No Time to Die is still headed to theaters this November, but with the way things have been going for the theatrical industry as of late, don’t be surprised if that changes. Indeed, tons of big blockbusters have picked up and moved to new release dates – mostly in 2021 – and Sony could very well end up doing the same if the situation at the box office doesn’t begin to improve.
For now, though, the film will be with us later this year and will give star Daniel Craig a fitting sendoff after five movies of playing James Bond, as the 52 year-old will hang up his gun and retire from the role for good after No Time To Die. But as one of the most coveted jobs in the industry, there’s already been a ton of speculation about who the next actor to wear the tux will be.
Many names have been thrown around, but if a new story from The Vulcan Reporter is to be believed, then the studio have already found their man. And that man is none other than Tom Hardy.
He’s been one of the bookies’ favourites to be the next James Bond for the last few years. And now a respected scooper has reported that Tom Hardy has indeed been cast as the next 007 to replace Daniel Craig after No Time To Die. However, this is not an official confirmation and so such a claim should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Nevertheless, the outlet anticipates that an announcement will come before the end of 2020.While they also admitted that 2021 seems likely, especially if No Time To Die is delayed again.
