Shooting continues on Daniel Craig’s Bond 25 for an April 2020 release, but that doesn’t stop fan speculation over who will be the next James Bond.

One of the bookies’ favourites is Peaky Blinders star Cillian Murphy, who has no ruled himself out in the race to be the next 007.

Speaking with The Guardian, the 43-year-old said: “The thing about it is, if you say anything about Bond it becomes the headline, right? There’s two things I’ll say about that.”Murphy continued: “Firstly, there’s a whole other industry which is completely separate from the film side of things, and that’s the bookies.”

He’s right, as it stands the star is 6-1 to be the next Bond just behind James Norton, Tom Hardy and Idris Elba on 5-1 and Tom Hiddleston and Richard Madden on 3-1.

He added: “The second thing I’d say is that I think it should be a woman, which rules me out.”

I Call True: Murphy playing the game here for sure with peaky blinders new series about to air he knows by mentioning Bond and also saying it should be a woman next it's guaranteed headlines!
