“Bullet Train” star Aaron Taylor-Johnson seems to be the frontrunner to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.
The 32-year-old “Avengers: Age of Ultron” actor has reportedly met with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli — and even had a secret audition last year.
A source said that while the screen test went “very well,” nothing has been officially confirmed.
Taylor-Johnson recently shot scenes as the spy, including the franchise’s iconic gun barrel sequence.
Other A-listers rumored to be in the 007 mix include Idris Elba, Tom Hardy, Henry Cavill, Richard Madden and “Bridgerton” star Regé-Jean Page.
