Aaron Taylor-Johnson has reportedly met with producers for the role of James Bond and it went well

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Aaron Taylor-Johnson has reportedly met with producers for the role of James Bond and it went well.

A new report confirms recent rumors that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is in the running for the role of James Bond. After 2021 saw Daniel Craig's departure from the role of Bond after five films, discussions surrounding who will be the next actor to take on this highly coveted role have been rife with rumor and speculation. Various British actors have found their names at the center of these discussions, including Tom Hardy, Idris Elba, and Henry Cavill, although recent rumors seemed to suggest that Taylor-Johnson could be in late-stage talks to become MI6's latest 007 agent.

The bottom line: This year’s gonna be bad. The ad market hasn’t yet hit its low, inflation and interest rates have stunted dealflow, the movie business is expected to improve but there aren’t enough releases planned to match pre-pandemic box office, it’s unclear if the advertising tiers will reverse the fortunes of the streamers, and the Wall Street investors who have killed the entertainment companies’ share prices are the same people who encouraged them to go all-in on streaming in the first place. Not great! 

You don’t need me to predict all that, so instead, for the second year in a row, I polled sources for more. With Craig having only recently exited the role, it previously seemed as though the Bond producers were in no major rush to fill his shoes and were, naturally, more focused on finding the best person for the job. As for what Bond's next iteration will look like, Broccoli previously discussed the key characteristics of the role, stating that they were specifically looking for a British actor under the age of 40, having previously toyed with, and ultimately thrown out, the idea of a younger Bond. Much like his Bond predecessors, taking on the role of Bond will also mean agreeing to a 10-12 year commitment.

Now its been confirmed that these rumors do, in fact, have some truth to them as Taylor-Johnson has reportedly met with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli to discuss the role. Per Puck News, Taylor-Johnson's meeting with Broccoli went very well, according to their sources. However, little else was confirmed with regard to who else may be in the running, nor what the next steps would be for Taylor-Johnson to secure the casting.

Since Craig's departure, many have placed bets on who would be named the next Bond. Taylor-Johnson was not near the top of bookies' lists to take over the role, with that position belonging to former Superman actor Henry Cavill, who had an implied probability of 29.07% to be named the next 007. Regé-Jean Page, James Norton, Tom Hardy and Dan Stevens joined Cavill in the top five.

It's currently unknown when the next James Bond will be announced. To date, the 32-year-old Taylor-Johnson is best known for films such as Nocturnals, Kick-Ass, and Bullet Train. He also portrays Wanda’s twin brother Pietro Maximoff in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, having appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and WandaVision.

While not as reliable of a source, The Daily Mail reported over the weekend that Lucien Laviscount, a 30-year-old British actor who currently stars on the Netflix series Emily in Paris, is another candidate to replace Craig.

Over the summer, Broccoli said it would be “at least two years” before another Bond film begins filming. “We’re working out where to go with him, we’re talking that through,” she explained during an event presented by the BFI Fellowships (via Deadline). “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.”
