Argylle will be directed by Matthew Vaughn, who helmed the Kingsman spy movies, which feature tons of Bond influences. In fact, his directorial debut was Layer Cake, which starred a pre-007 Craig.
According to Collider, the filmmaker previously shared: “Henry Cavill, that man was born to play Bond. When you see how he is in this film, I was just like, wow, this guy is everything you’d imagine Bond to have been, or be.”
However, if Cavill is to become Bond, Vaughn doesn’t think he’ll be the one to direct the project.
