The Night Manager’s Susanne Bier Reportedly In Line To Helm James Bond 25

Now that Daniel Craig has all but bowed out of the title role, with director Sam Mendes following his fellow Englishman out the exit door, a flurry of rumors have swirled around MGM’s as-yet-untitled Bond 25 and, specifically, the talent that will steer the latest installment in the prestigious spy franchise into production.

Over the weekend, news emerged that Tom Hiddleston had reportedly opened talks to supplant Craig as 007, while Jamie Bell was tipped as one of the frontrunners but according to the Radio Times, it is the former actor who is much closer to sealing the deal, potentially reuniting with Susanne Bier in the process.

Should a deal fall into place the Dane would become the first female director to take the reins of a James Bond movie, a milestone that is not only long overdue, but could herald some much-needed fresh blood being pumped into MGM’s flagship franchise. What’s more, the potential appointment of Susanne Bier at the helm would certainly tip the scales in Hiddleston’s favor, who has emerged as one of the primary frontrunners for the coveted role alongside Bell, Idris Elba and, it seems, Gillian Anderson.
