There was literally heaps of rumours flying about who'd fill his size 12 shoes and the hottest tips were supposedly Idris Elba (yas), Tom Hardy (yas) and Tom Hiddleston (yas), BUT if the internet is anything to go by (coz, y'know, it's so legit 😉) meeegabae Theo James is meant to be taking the role of 007!!!! We all struggled to breathe for a bit tbh.
The news is basically only available on some shonky-looking websites, but we for one would not be against having the 31-year-old Divergent star work for the biggest spy agency in the world and kick some serious international criminal arse. Apparently there was a private press conference held on Sunday where Theo said:
“When my agent called and first told me that I was being considered for the Bond~role, I almost fell off my chair. But it is one of those roles that I have dreamt of playing ever since I was a little kid and I had to go for the audition. It seems it paid off and it feels like I am dreaming. This will be a blast.”
Apparently pre-production of the newest movie will start in August and Theo-babes will begin filming this September... The countdown is on.
Time to watch this melty gif on repeat...
