Barbara Broccoli has ditched Daniel Craig according The Book Bond, citing an unnamed trusted source who has been “right before”. The site mentioned that the producers want to gain back the control handed over to Craig by making him co-producer on SPECTRE.
007 Magazine adds that Tom Hiddleston was screen tested about a month ago and offered the role, which he is now considering. No source is given.
James Bond Radio on the other hand says those reports are nonsense. They “have it on very good authority”.
To me it seems too early to sign up an actor without having a script in place. I’ve said previously it would make sense for Eon to sound out a number of potential replacements, but have been wrong before.
