Daniel Craig is expected to hang up his tuxedo and end his time as 007 after the next James Bond film, which will most likely be released in 2019.

That leaves only one question then: who will replace him as the iconic spy?

Many people have been calling for a person of colour to play Bond (Idris Elba, anyone?) and others have said that it's high time a woman take on the role.

John Krasinski is among those hoping for a female Bond – more specifically, for his wife Emily Blunt to play the part.

“I think a woman Bond would be amazing … They just did it on Doctor Who and people went ballistic [with excitement]," he told the Evening Standard.

"Emily would be an amazing Bond. Would she do it? I don’t know. But I would love to see her do it. I love to see her do anything, but the Bond franchise for me is so [great].”

To be honest, now that he's saying it we can't think of anyone more perfect.

Sexy British accent? Check. Unbelievably good looks? Check. Suave attitude? Check! Let's just make her a secret agent already.

Her acting cred puts her over the edge, too. From Devil Wears Prada to Young Victoria to Into the Woods, the 35-year-old has chops.

And who knows, maybe if Emily is involved in the project John will be on board, too.

He recently directed and co-wrote the critically acclaimed film A Quiet Place, which he also co-starred in with his wife. The 38-year-old has said that he'd love to work with Emily again, who he praises as his 'favourite actress'.

“I would do everything with Emily. She was just so incredibly supportive with the script and had ideas of how to shoot, and on set with such a great energy. She is the best person to work with," he gushed.

It also helps that John is all about empowering women. The former Office star said, "Female empowerment is vital, it’s a must, it’s not a thing you’ve got to be aware of, it’s an obvious must.

"Women are as heroic — and in my case much more heroic — than men, so I love doing it [creating those characters].”

Fingers crossed we get to see a female Bond on the silver screen soon!

Despite saying he’d rather “slash [his] wrists” than play Bond again, Daniel Craig has fans thinking he could be sticking with the franchise after all.

Just one month on from sources claiming the actor could get $150 million to reprise the coveted role, Daniel seems to have changed his tune on 007.

Speaking at the New Yorker festival over the weekend, the 48-year-old said: “I’ve got the best job in the world doing Bond. The things I get to do on a Bond movie and the type of work it is, there’s no other job like it.”

Furthering the suggestion that he could appear in a fifth James Bond movie, he continued: “I love this job.  I get a massive kick out of it.  And if I can keep getting a kick out of it, I will.”

Bond executive producers recently told the BBC that despite the likes of Tom Hiddleston and James Norton expressing an interest in playing the spy, Daniel is still “absolutely the first choice”.

As if rocking a role in Netflix’s hit prison series Orange Is The New Black isn’t badass enough, Aussie actress Ruby Rose now wants get in on some James Bond action.

Yesterday the 30-year-old model jokingly shared her ambition online when she posted a tattooed bikini pic on Instagram.

In the very Halle Berry-esque snap Ruby can be seen emerging from crystal clear waters in a blue and white printed bikini with her hair perfectly slicked back.

Alongside the pic the actress wrote: “I’d like to be the next Bond girl please, I’ve been practicing all week haha.”

The comment may have been meant in tongue-in-cheek fashion, but that hasn’t stopped Ruby’s followers from jumping on the Bond bandwagon with comments like “Never mind Bond girl, you’d make a great Bond” and “That would be an amazing movie” being echoed throughout the thread.

 

 

 We’re with the fans on this one: Ruby for Bond all the way.

After much speculation it was announced this week that Grammy winner Sam Smith will be the artist to take over the latest Bond theme song.

Writing’s On The Wall is to be released later this month. However, there is still plenty of speculation surrounding who will be cast as the next leading man himself.

David Beckham has apparently become a favourite of the public. Since his latest foray into the acting world in pal Guy Ritchie’s latest film, fans have been eager to see him take on the famous 007 role.

There was also much controversy when actor Idris Elba was deemed ‘too street’ by Bond author Anthony Horowitz.

“For me, Idris Elba is a bit too rough to play the part. It’s not a color issue. I think he is probably a bit too ‘street’ for Bond. Is it a question of being suave? Yeah.”

He later apologised for his remarks and said he was “mortified to have caused offence.” On his own Instagram page Idris posted a screenshot of the article the remark appeared in with the caption: “Always keep smiling!! It takes no energy and never hurts! Learned that from the Street!!”

Now it seems that one pop star fancies herself as the one to step into the secret agent’s shoes.

Posting a selfie on her Instagram page as she flexed in the mirror, Ellie joked she was very excited to reveal that she was the next Bond.

 

So excited to announce that I am the next James Bond x

The singer is already the face of a Nike campaign, and she has the abs to prove it. Dressed in a sports bra and tiny black shorts (Nike, naturally), the star looks incredibly fit as she shows off her hard earned physique.

Not that we’re all that surprised seeing as she’s been keeping busy all summer long as she performs on the summer festival circuit. However, a performance scheduled for October seems to have caused some issues.

Ellie is supposed to perform at the AFL Grand Final in Melbourne, but organisers for the event have landed themselves in hot water after they booked mostly British acts instead of more local performers.

Sam Smith has announced that he will sing the theme for the new Bond film, Spectre.

The Grammy winner had teased at his involvement with the film over the weekend over social media (in the middle of his Electric Picnic preparations we presume) and now it has been confirmed that Sam will be singing Writing’s On The Wall.

The track was co-written with Jimmy Napes, with whom Sam has collaborated with previously on Stay With Me and Naughty Boy’s La La La.

On Instagram the singer wrote: “This is one of the highlights of my career. I am honoured to finally announce that I will be singing the next Bond theme song.”

Sprectre will be the twenty fourth Bond film to be released in Ireland on 26 October. Sam’s single, released by Capitol Records, will debut and be available to stream on 25 September.

Writing’s On The Wall will be the first time a Bond theme song has been recorded by a male solo artist since 1965. Speaking about the announcement the producers of Spectre, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli said:

“Sam and Jimmy have written the most inspirational song for Spectre and with Sam’s extraordinary vocal performance, Writing’s On The Wall will surely be considered one of the greatest Bond songs of all time.”

The previous Bond themes have made for some of the most memorable film music of all time. The last theme, Skyfall, was performed by Adele and went on to win a number of awards. These included the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song.

Sam told Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw he was relieved to finally be able to talk about the project, saying it “has been the top secret mission of my life.”

“I got called into the office with Barbara Broccoli and Sam Mendes and they gave me the script, I read the script. They said ‘have a go at the song’.”

We can’t wait to hear this!
