Letitia Wright suggested the Star Wars actor, who like her appears in one of McQueen’s Little Axe movies, would be perfect as 007 in a new interview – and he likes the idea.
“Ooh! Hey listen, Steve McQueen directing, let’s do this!” John said. “We could show them something different. We still bring that sophistication. You know, James Bond has to be James Bond. But we could do something with that.”
Daniel Craig is scheduled to take his final bow as 007 in No Time to Die next Easter (2021) and Bond bosses have announced they will name his successor then. Bookmakers have Tom Hardy as a firm favorite to play the next super spy.
