Casino Royale director talks to the Express about timelines and casting on Bond 26.
Martin Campbell, the director of GoldenEye and Casino Royale, has discussed the timeline for the next 007 movie and the possibility of introducing a new actor to play the iconic role.
Campbell revealed that the next Bond film is still at least a year or two away, which fits in with what we at The James Bond Dossier have been saying for months now. He empathizes with the challenge of finding the next Bond due to the difficulty of maintaining the right tone for the character.
He praised Daniel Craig’s portrayal of Bond, describing it as internalized and gravitas-filled. In terms of rebooting Bond for a third time, Campbell admitted that he doesn’t know what he would do differently.
