Billie Eilish wants Michael B Jordan to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

The songwriter, who performs the titular song to the upcoming 007 blockbuster No Time To Die, made this declaration during a recent interview with Capital FM.

After being asked who she wants to replace Daniel Craig when he departs the franchise after No Time To Die, the 18-year-old quickly proclaimed, “Michael B Jordan would kill that s***.”

It’s hard to disagree with Eilish’s remarks, too, as Jordan has blossomed into one of the most popular actors in Hollywood thanks to his titanic performances in the likes of Black Panther, Creed, and Fruitvale Station.

James Bond producers will soon have to decide who replaces Craig in the role, because after starring Casino Royale, Quantum Of Solace, Skyfall and Spectre, the 51-year-old actor will bow out as the iconic spy with No Time To Die.

In the film, Bond will reportedly look to rescue a scientist who has been kidnapped by a mysterious villain, who is in possession of some very dangerous new technology.

No Time To Die promises to be a spectacular goodbye for Craig, as he will go up against recent Oscar winner Rami Malek, while the film will also star Lea Seydoux, Lashana Lynch, Ben Whishaw, Ana de Armas, Naomi Harris, Jeffrey Wright, Christoph Waltz and Ralph Fiennes.

The talent behind the camera is just as impressive, too, as the beloved creator of Fleabag Phoebe Waller Bridge has re-worked the script that was originally written by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and Cary Fukunaga, who has also directed it.

We’ll get to see what they offer up with No Time To Die when it is released on April 2.
