British actor, Tom Hardy, has been chosen as the next James Bond.
That's according to The Vulcan Reporter who broke the news recently. While some news agencies couldn't wait to break the news to their readers, others were hesitant to announce it as it hasn't come from the studio or the actor.
Back in 2015, Craig infamously told a reporter that he "would rather slit his wrists" than do another Bond movie. Well, that didn't go according to plan as he went on to do another one. Craig's fifth and final appearance as the world's favourite spy will be in No Time To Die.
The film was meant to be released worldwide in April already, but due to the worldwide pandemic it has been scheduled for a November release. With warnings of a second pandemic wave hitting the UK, the release might be pushed back even further.
In August, the Irish Post reported that three Irish actors were tipped to be the next James Bond. The list consisted of Cillian Murphy, Michael Fassbender and Aidan Turner.
Other actors who appeared on the list alongside the three Irish actors were Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Orlando Bloom and even singer Harry Styles from the former boyband, One Direction.
The Irish Post recently reported that former James Bond actor, Pierce Brosnan, had suggested that Hardy play the British spy during a 2018 interview with the Daily Mail.
"I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. I'd be happy to see him do it. You need an actor who can put a bit of wiggle into it, that's what makes Bond."
Meanwhile, police in London has said that five guns used as props in James Bond films were stolen during a burglary in London, reports Channel 24.
"In scenes reminiscent of a James Bond movie, you can even see the flash of a camera from the occupant engaged in the surveillance," Detective Inspector, Paul Ridley, said in a statement.
"I believe these individuals were involved in the crime, it was only a matter of minutes prior to the raid."
