For Barbara Broccoli, Bond-producer extraordinaire, she would not see any change in how we’d watch these movies sooner or later.

And regardless that that is the final time we’ll see Daniel Craig because the worldwide tremendous spy, for super-producer Barbara Broccoli, the considered his alternative is not one thing she’s eager about.
“It isn’t in my head in any respect,” she informed Sky Information.
“I am in denial – I do not wish to give it some thought and I am not going to consider it so far as I am involved. Daniel Craig is James Bond. Finish of story.”
And we might not know who the subsequent Bond is for some time, with Broccoli eager to have fun getting the movie out earlier than any choices are made.
