"Game Of Thrones" Star Richard Madden May Be The Next James Bond

Richard Madden rose to fame taking part in the ill-fated Robb Stark on Game of Thrones. It seems that his character luck could also be enhancing a bit, as The Sun stories that Madden is on the highest of the checklist for James Bond alternative castings. The report claims that Bond govt producer Barbara Broccoli has taken a liking to Madden resulting from his glorious efficiency on the BBC drama Bodygaurd. 

A supply near the scenario claims that "It’s significantly trying like he [Madden] goes to get the job. Not solely is he on prime of Barbara’s checklist, however she is getting ready to supply the function." Daniel Craig has performed the worldwide spy since 2006's Casino Royale, which rebooted the Bond collection from the start. Craig's muscular and intimidating construct helped usher in a brand new age of Bond, the place he relied much less on cool devices equivalent to laser watches and Batman-esque belts, and trusted his brute power. It is unclear if Madden's Bond would revert again into the suaver and technologically superior Bond of the Pierce Brosnan days, or if he'll proceed as a extra bodily drive. 

Cary Fukunaga has taken over directing duties for Bond 25 starring Craig, after Danny Boyle stop over artistic variations.
