The musician and former One Direction star Harry Styles has denied reports that he is in line to take over the role of James Bond from Daniel Craig, who is leaving the part behind after the next instalment in the franchise, No Time to Die.

Speculation has been rife for some time about who will take up the mantle of Bond, with other rumoured names including Tom Hardy, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and Henry Cavill – alongside some murmurings that the next Bond could be female.

Although Styles was reported to have attended meetings about the role, his representatives have quashed the claims, saying that they “aren’t even remotely true” to the Daily Mail. The newspaper had previously reported that sources close to the production had described Styles as “a new age British man…making him Bond would signal the franchise changing with the times.”

No Time to Die has had its release delayed yet again, and is now set to premier on April 2 2021, almost a year after it was originally scheduled. It sees returning actors including Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Lea Séydoux and Ben Whishaw, alongside new stars including Rami Malek as the film’s antagonist and Lashana Lynch as a rival 00 agent.

In other film news, The Matrix 4 has bucked the trend for delayed productions and will now premier earlier than originally planned.
