The Fantastic Four star Jamie Bell is reportedly in discussion with James Bond producer about replacing Daniel Craig as 007 agent in the franchise.
Bell has had a meeting with Barbara Broccoli, who coincidentally produces the actor’s new movie Film Stars Don’t Die, about taking over the coveted role, reported Deadline.
The casting report comes after Craig was rumoured to turn down a lucrative deal to reprise his role and serve as a co-producer for the next two films.
Bell was last seen in The Fantastic Four as Ben Grimm or best known as The Thing.
He is not the only one linked to the Spectre sequel. Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston are among fans’ favourites while Gillian Anderson is campaigning to be the first female 00 agent and Priyanka Chopra is joking about wanting the role.
