“Bridgerton” star Regé-Jean Page is still the favorite to take over from Daniel Craig as James Bond, say 007 insiders — but also in the running are Henry Cavill and “1917” actor George MacKay.

Breakout Netflix star Page is actively being talked about amongst Bond producers after Craig, 53, bows out as Bond in his last film, “No Time To Die.” The release of the movie has been delayed three times by the pandemic.

A 007 source said Page, 31, is being actively talked about amongst Bond producers, but so is “Man of Steel” star Cavill, 38, who reportedly auditioned for “Casino Royale,” and McKay, 29.

A source said, “They are talking about Regé, but Bond producers are not making any decisions until after ‘No Time to Die’ is released. They are focusing on Daniel Craig’s big finale.
