Harry Styles has reportedly told pals he’s in the running to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

Sources claim the British singer, 26, has met with film bosses about taking over the iconic role, after betting was suspended on Tom Hardy playing 007.

Daniel Craig’s final outing as Bond – No Time To Die – is set to be released in April 2021, after it was delayed for the second time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A source told The Sun: ‘Harry is deadly serious. He has had a series of high-level meetings about becoming 007. Harry believes he is the final two.

‘Harry is a new age British man… he’s confident in his own skin and making him Bond would signal the franchise changing with the times.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Harry Styles and EON Productions for comment.

Harry has remained as one of the odds-on favourites to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond, though it was reported last month Tom Hardy is set to land the iconic role.

The Vulcan Reporter reported they heard in June that Hardy had been offered the iconic part after a successful audition, while bookies odds on the star have now been slashed in half. 

The publication also reported producers had planned to unveil Tom as James Bond in November- the same month No Time To Die was due to be released.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic the Vulcan Reporter state the announcement will now be made later this year or early 2021.

Harry, who landed his first acting role in the 2017 war epic Dunkirk, recently said he’d love to play 007, telling Hits Radio: ‘I think it’s kind of everyone’s dream a little bit.’

Since the speculation began the likes of James Norton, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and even retired footballer David Beckham have been mentioned as possible replacements.
