James Bond bosses have hinted Harry Styles could be in the running for the next film in 2022.

Daniel Craig is confirmed to be starring in the upcoming flick, which is set for a November 2019 release, the Daily Mail reports.

But speaking to the Daily Star, Spectre film editor Lee Smith said: "Harry could do it. If they wanted a younger Bond then why not? He has got it. Harry is really good and he can go all the way. He is an exceptional talent and a complete natural on camera."

Speaking about Styles' performance in war film Dunkirk, he continued: "You would have thought you were dealing with a guy with many years of experience. You would never know that was his first film. If he wants to act, I cannot imagine he would not have a great future."

Harry previously spoke out about his hit appearance in the film, admitting: "I feel very lucky to be a part of Dunkirk. I'd do this one again but it may be one and done – I'd do this one again. I really enjoyed this. I've peaked too soon! There's nowhere to go."

MailOnline has contacted Harry Styles' representative for comment.

Daniel Craig confirmed his return to the franchise last October.

Recent reports claim James Bond is set to get married in the upcoming film, in a huge move for the famous womaniser - although his beloved wife is said to be killed leading to a Taken-style revenge twist.

The new Bond film is set for release in November, 2019.
