The search for the next 007 continues and in a surprising turn of events, Rebel Wilson has announced she auditioned for Bond 26.
The torch is ready to be passed to the next James Bond actor, following Daniel Craig’s explosive exit from the franchise with No Time To Die in 2021. Since then, it’s been anyone’s guess as to who will be taking on the role of the world’s greatest spy, with fan-favourites being the likes of Idris Elba, Henry Cavill and Tom Hardy. According to rumours, the next actor has already been found, but those reports are unconfirmed, so we’re still none the wiser as to who’ll be sampling a shaken-not-stirred martini next, though younger actors are reportedly ruled out entirely.
Speaking of major franchises, Dune: Part Two recently received a new trailer.
But in a twist no one saw coming, actress and Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson recently announced that she’d auditioned for the next Bond movie, though not as 007. The actress didn’t go into details, presumably being sworn to secrecy, but simply stated, “What was really cool was getting to audition for Bond.”
Details on the next film are, as you’d expect, few and far between though obviously there’s going to be some kind of reboot following the pretty conclusive ending on No Time To Die. There are practically endless possibilities on who might step into Bond’s shoes, with no indication of when we’ll receive an update.
In the meantime, James Bond fans still enjoy the older films, as well as the beloved Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007, which was recently re-released on the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service, PS4/5 and Xbox consoles, with its complete single player and local multiplayer modes intact. It has introduced more fans than ever before to the game, which many believe to be more iconic than the film it’s based on, though newcomers struggled to get used to its dodgy controls.
