James Bond is getting a reboot; next Bond movie filming only after 2 years

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, the charming and dashing British daredevil agent, James Bond is reportedly not going to be on the silver screen for a few more years as the makers of Bond movies don’t plan to start filming for another two years.  

The reason for this is – the character is getting a reboot, a revamp, according to the James Bond franchise producer, Barbara Broccoli.

The producer said this at a star-studded affair which happened in Central London recently to honour Broccoli along with her brother Michael G. Wilson for BFI Fellowships. There it was mentioned that it would be “at least two years” before the next 007 movie starts the process of filming.

She also shared that the task of finding a replacement for actor Daniel Craig (who has been Bond up until now) had not even started, “because they will be reinventing Bond.”

Broccoli did not let slip who the next Bond would be but instead offered updates on the decision-making process, behind the scenes.

She said, “Nobody’s in the running. We’re working out where to go with him, we’re talking that through. There isn’t a script and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next film because, really, it’s a reinvention of Bond. We’re reinventing who he is and that takes time. I’d say that filming is at least two years away.”

The entire evening was a love fest for Bond, filled with warm as well as witty video messages from Bond luminaries, which included Daniel Craig, Lea Seydoux, Dame Judie Dench, Rami Malek as well as Sam Mendes, the director for Bond movies, ‘Spectre’ and ‘Skyfall’.

Broccoli and Wilson were given their BFI Fellowships by Bond regular cast members Naomie Harris (Miss Moneypenny) and Ralph Fiennes (Spy chief M).
