"James Bond: No Time To Die" is still a few months away, but there are already thoughts about the future after Daniel Craig. And the Phoebe Waller-Bridge, which is currently riding from success to success, could play a major role here.
In the next few days a first trailer for "James Bond: No Time To Die" will be released and maybe we will see the signature of Phoebe Waller-Bridge. This was hired on personal request by Daniel Craig after he had the feeling that some dialogues and the story of his current film still need a feminine perspective.
However, Phoebe Waller-Bridge is said to have been more than a script doctor and her ideas impressed the creators so much that she was allowed to make many more changes to the screenplay for "No Time To Die". The industry is already talking about "saving" the agent action thriller. And the enthusiasm of the makers for the "No Time To Die" savior is probably going on.
MAKES PHOEBE WALLER BRIDGE "BOND 26"
Baz Bamigboye, who usually has excellent sources on James Bond, reports that Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson already have a desire for Phoebe Waller-Bridge to develop Bond 26, the next 007 era coins.
Of course, such a film is still years in the future and once the focus is on Craig's final appearance. After that, a new actor must first be sought, but that the makers are already reaching out now shows how much they think of Waller-Bridge.
Bamigboye even reports that she has infected the whole team with her enthusiasm. There has been a lot of skepticism about "No Time To Die" (there were also many problems before and during production), but thanks to the author, everyone is now convinced that Craig's 007 farewell performance will be a great movie.
THIS IS PHOEBE WALLER-BRIDGE
Phoebe Waller-Bridge is right at the top of the wave of success. For her Amazon series "Fleabag", which she invented and wrote and in which she plays the lead role, she dropped three prizes at the Emmys: for the best comedy series, as best actress, and for the best screenplay.
With the drama "Killing Eve" developed and written by her, she is responsible for another of the currently most popular series. This was just nominated in nine categories at the Emmys, leading actress Jodie Comer won the coveted TV prize.
In the cinema, the comedian caused a sensation especially in "Solo: A Star Wars Story," where she as a female droid L3-37 a series of sayings and finally a great cross-reference to the beginnings of the saga in "Star Wars" by 1977 under George Lucas is.
Just now she also provided Amazon with a mega-contract. It gets about $ 20 million a year and will develop and produce new fabrics for Amazon Prime Video.
We're pretty sure we'll hear and see a lot of Phoebe Waller-Bridge in the future. Whether in connection with "Bond 26" you have to wait and see. Until then, we look forward to the trailer for "James Bond: No Time To Die" and the theatrical release of Craig's final appearance on April 2, 2020.
