Richard Madden could become the next James Bond

After many rumors about Daniel Craig’s future replacement, Richard Madden is the new darling of James Bond producers.

For the James Bond saga , we are at a rebound a month. For the next episode, after Danny Boyle, it’s now the director Cary Fukunaga ( True Detective ) who was chosen to be behind the camera. That was the last evolution. But this Sunday, October 14, a new rumor about the future of the franchise has appeared on the Web.

According to Dark Horizons , Richard Madden could succeed Daniel Craig in the iconic role of James Bond. The 32-year-old actor is known for the role of Robb Stark in the Game of Thrones series. But the Scot has also played lately in Bastille Day and Ibiza.

A source told the Sun c e weekend that Richard Madden was the new target of the historical producer of the franchise (since 1987), Barbara Broccoli:

“He’s at the top of Barbara Broccoli’s list and she’s really ready to give him the role.”

Faced with the actor, many competitors were successively mentioned. A black James Bond? A gay James Bond? A woman ? All possibilities seem to have been mentioned .

But Barbara Broccoli was firm on the subject, saying:

“Bond is a man, he’s a male character, he’s been written as a man, and I think he’ll probably be a man.”

If Richard Madden seems to have the ideal resume in his eyes, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Michael B. Jordan are still in the running for the tuxedo.
