Rege-Jean Page New Favourite to Become Next James Bond


Next James Bond betting odds - Rege-Jean Page

After five sensational movies, Daniel Craig’s time as James Bond has come to an end and punters are making a fresh round of predictions on who his replacement will be.

This novelty betting market is nothing new, it has been in play for several years. But as the dust successfully settles on 2021’s No Time To Die, producers will be keen to announce the identity of the new 007. Costing between $250 and $300 million to make, No Time To Die was a resounding success. It has so far taken $750 million at the box office.

The one thing the film industry know what to do is strike when the iron is hot. Experts believe a new bond movie and a new lead actor will be announced within the next five months.

But who will that be? There has been a host of favourites. Last year one, Bodyguard star Richard Madden, was odds-on.


The Long List of Short Priced Contenders

At some point in time Hobbit actor Aidan Turner, Happy Valley star James Norton, Jamie Bell the star of Billy Elliot, Ryan Gosling the La La Land actor, Tom Hardy, Poldark actor Aidan Turner, Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston and Michael Fassbender have all traded at odds of 4/1 or shorter.

The candidate that has remained prominent in the betting and was a long-term favorite was Idris Elba. At 49, people are now starting to realise he may have missed the boat (or Aston Martin).


Hold The Front Page

It is now the Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page that the punters have latched onto in recent months and last week two betting firms declared he had been subject to a fresh round of substantial bets.

Other betting firms declared fresh interest in Henry Cavill – the actor best known for playing Superman – he is now into top priced 10/1 with Boylesports from the 20/1 available a week ago. He is trading as low as 5/1 with Coral.

Jamie Dornan, best known for starring in the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise as the main character Christian Grey, has also seen his odds halved from 20/1 into 10/1 during the last few days.
