Jamie Bell is rumored to be in talks with Bond producers to take over from Daniel Craig.

Is Daniel Craig really done with James Bond? Craig said in Fall during the promo tour for Spectre that he does not want to think about Bond for 1 or 2 years. He did not officially drop out yet. There have been though already several actors named as potential Daniel Craig replacements including Idris Elba and Tim Hiddleston.

Now The Sun throws in another interesting new Bond into the game. Billy Elliot star Jamie Bell has held informal talks with Bond producers according to the British tabloid. 30-year-old Jamie Bell is currently filming "Film Stars Don't Die In Liverpool." He starred recently in Fantastic Four as Ben Grimm and in Snowpiercer as Edgar. 

At 30, Billy Elliot still has boyish looks that could make an interesting new young James Bond. With Jamie Bell, the next Bond could be set in Bond's early years as spy. This would be something new for the epic franchise.

Bond mogul Barbara Broccoli is likely getting ready to keep her options open in case Daniel Craig drops the iconic role. He could do one more Bond, but then I think he is really done. We will likely have to wait until 2017 for the decision who will be the next James Bond.
