Actor Richard Madden is reportedly in discussion regarding taking up the role of James Bond after actor Daniel Craig recently stepped down from the film. According to recent reports, Madden impressed the creators of the Bond franchise with his performance in drama series Bodyguard.
A source close to Barbara Dana Broccoli, producer for the Bond film series, said, "It's seriously looking like he is going to get the job. Not only is he on top of Barbara's list, but she is preparing to offer him the role."
Earlier last month Madden's father had revealed that his son was eager to play Bond. "I'm quite sure he does want that to be on his CV one day but he's not making a song and dance about it. Whether it's Bond or any big role, Richard has ideas about things he'd like to do. It's probably best whatever his desires or thoughts are to keep it to himself," he had said.
James Bond will return to cinemas for the 25th time and the film is set to release on February 14, 2020.
