Brosnan Shares Blunt Take On Bond’s Future

MGM, EON

Starring in four Bond films over a span of seven years, Pierce Brosnan certainly earned his 007 stripes and managed to deliver one of the best modern Bond films with his first outing “Goldeneye”.

He left the role after 2002’s “Die Another Day,” being replaced by Daniel Craig, who stepped into the Bond shoes with 2006’s “Casino Royale” before finishing up his five-film run with 2021’s “No Time to Die”.

With attention turning towards who should be cast next, and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson having recently spoken about the early days of this process, it’s understandable some former Bond actors would be asked about it.

Out doing “Black Adam” press, Brosnan did a new profile piece for GQ UK and quickly got to the question before the interviewer had time to ask and reportedly said in an ‘uninterested’ tone: “Who should do it? I do not care. It’ll be interesting to see who they get, who the man shall be. Whoever he be, I wish him well.”

He then goes on to talk about Craig’s tenure, saying: “I saw the last one, and I saw Skyfall. I love Skyfall. I’m not too sure about the last one. Daniel always gives of his heart. Very courageous, very strong. But…” with the magazine adding that “the thought goes unfinished”.

In a separate video interview, he had nothing but praise for Craig’s run as 007: “I have the greatest admiration for Daniel Craig and what he did. The physicality he brought to the performance was monumental.”

The new Bond casting is still expected to be a couple of years off and will require an actor willing to commit for at least a decade.
