James Bond 2017: Who Will Replace Daniel Craig [VIDEO]
Rumors of who the next Bond guy after Daniel Craig has been swirling aroud for a long time. From Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, and now Tom Hardy-who will be James Bond 2017?
Is Tom Hardy interested in the role?
According to Forbes, Hardy could make James Bond interesting again. Although the actor has been mum and not giving direct answers when asked about playing agent 007 in the big screen (via Huffington Post). Hardy's name has been floating for some time now and his coyness seems to be fuelling rumors further that he just might be the next Bond.
Many moviegoers agree that performance of previous Bond installments like Quantum of Solace, Skyfall, and Spectre were not too stellar. Maybe it's time for a new reboot? This could notably bee important after Craig said that he would rather slit his wrists than star in another Bond film.
Is Christopher Nolan directing?
Christopher Nolan has previously expressed his desire to make a Bond movie. The partnership of Hardy and Nolan proved successful in The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception. Speculations say that this could bring the Bond magic back.
Looking into Nolan's roster of movies films, it can be said that they have jaw-dropping and elaborate action sequences. Not to mention that these were filmed using actual stunt work and not CGI. Nolan is the same man who turned a trippy idea about invading other people's dreams into an action-packed movie with tailored suits and machine guns.
Clearly, it seems like Nolan is highly capable to direct a Bond film. Although the source believes Nolan films aren't specifically fun-but Tom Hardy is. Hardy who is almost in his forties, still seems to carry this certain boyish charm. How about you, who is your bet to star as the next James Bond?
