James ‘The Rock’ Bond? Dwayne Johnson Says He Wants to Be The Next Agent 007

Dwayne Johnson would only consider joining the James Bond franchise if he can play 007 himself



Renowned actor Dwayne Johnson wants to be the next James Bond in a new Agent 007 film. It is worth mentioning that these statements come in a context where the character’s role is still vacant.

Following the latest film in the franchise, No Time To Die, Daniel Craig will not be reprising his role as the protagonist of the stories. Even his statements on who should be the next to bring Bond to life generated more than a bit of controversy.

In this scenario, where there is still no talk of an actor or even a future project, ‘The Rock’ made a somewhat unexpected confession, although not without foundation.

The Californian actor is going through a significant moment in his career as an actor, being a big name in Hollywood, starring in big projects that are guaranteed successes. He recently released Red Alert on Netflix, breaking records on the streaming platform.

As time goes on, the list of candidates to be the next 007 is getting longer and longer, with several faces vying for the role. Now, Johnson has joined the list of possible successors to Craig.

While the former WWE wrestler’s CV is full of big titles, special appearances and even major upcoming projects, he confessed that he still has one dream left to fulfil. Recently, Dwayne Johnson admitted that playing James Bond is a dream he has yet to realise. This intention seems to be normal, without any specific reason, however, there is something that binds him to the franchise.

During an interview with Esquire, the artist mentioned that the possibility of playing Agent 007 would help him continue a family legacy. This story goes back to 1967 when the film You Only Live Twice was released, starring Sean Connery. In that film, Peter Maivia, the grandfather of The Rock, played one of the film’s villains. Now, Johnson’s idea is to put his family’s name back in the title, but now in the lead role.

Yes, my grandfather was a Bond villain in You Only Live Twice with Sean Connery. Very very cool. I’d like to follow in his footsteps and be the next Bond. I don’t want to be a villain. It has to be Bond,” said the actor.

For now, we can only wait for further news about a new 007 film, at least until mid-2022, when it will probably be revealed who the selected actor will be.
