It will be at least two years before the next James Bond movie begins filming, revealed producer Barbara Broccoli.

Deadline spoke to Broccoli at a private event in London last week where she and her brother Michael Wilson were honoured for their BFI Fellowships.

Broccoli disclosed that no one is in the running, "We're working out where to go with him; we're talking that through," she said.

"There isn't a script, and we can't come up with one until we decide how we're going to approach the next film because, really, it's a reinvention of Bond. We're reinventing who he is, and that takes time. I'd say that filming is at least two years away."

Daniel Craig made his last outing as the British spy in No Time to Die last year, which was the highest-grossing film of the year and the highest-grossing film of the pandemic era.

In 2019 Daniel became the longest-serving James Bond overtaking Sir Roger Moore. He was in the role for 15 years and starred in five films since he was first announced as Bond in 2005.
