James Bond movies “will be on screens until at least 2037 as part of new Warner Bros deal” | Entertainment news

It has been reported that the James Bond films will be released at least until 2037.

The creators of the film franchise, which began in 1962, are said to have signed a new sequel deal with Warner Bros. that will mark the 75th anniversary of the spy.

​​​​​​While this could be good news for fans, bosses are yet to confirm who will be cast as the infamous MI6 agent after Idris Elba ‘walked out of 007 talks’.

A source told the Sunday Mirror: “Bond will probably still be in a tough spot at 75. Tuxedos and martinis will not be hung.”

The insider added that this is “great news for fans” as it will allow the franchise to continue well beyond the last film, No Time To Die, starring Daniel Craig.

Idris Elba, 49, is said to have turned down the chance to become the next 007 after Daniel after years of negotiations.

The “Luther” actor was one of the front-runners for the role, but is now said to be keen on other roles.

He reportedly even submitted a list of suggested names of actors he thought would be perfect for the role of franchise veteran Barbara Broccoli.

A source told The Sun: “The owners and Barbara wanted Idris but he wants to create something for himself.

“However, he has put forward names for the role of 007. He is ‘unofficially’ involved in the decision-making process as he has been in talks with the producers for so long.”

When asked if he would consider taking on the role, Idris said: “No, I’m not going to be James Bond… I’m probably the most famous Bond actor in the world and I haven’t even played the part.

“Enough means enough. I can’t talk about it anymore.”
