Eon Productions executive producer Barbara Broccoli, who will have final say on the next Bond, has reportedly been impressed with Madden’s recent work and is set to approach him about taking on the part.

A source told the Mail on Sunday: “It’s seriously looking like he is going to get the job.”

Filming for the fifth and last Bond movie with lead actor Daniel Craig has already begun.
