Title: James Bond franchise producer rules out woman taking over as 007

Daniel Craig’s impending departure from the 007 franchise and the role of James Bond has led to chatter as to who will portray the iconic character next.

While many fans of the series have used social media to encourage a more inventive approach when it comes to casting future installments, for instance selecting Idris Elba to be at the helm or casting a female Bond, producer Barbara Broccoli is confident there will not be a gender switch.

“Bond is male,” she told The Guardian. “He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.”

“And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women,” Broccoli added. “Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”

A representative for MGM, which is distributing the next Bond film, had no further comment on Broccoli’s remarks.

Rosamund Pike, who starred as a Bond Girl in 2002’s Die Another Day, expressed similar sentiments earlier this year. “I think the character of James Bond is a man. He is really,” she said in August. “Why not make a kick-ass female agent in her own right?”

Broccoli is the daughter of original Bond producer Albert Broccoli and has presided over the Ian Fleming adaptations since his death.

In August, producers announced the news that Danny Boyle had bowed out of directing the 25th film over “creative differences,” and later revealed Cary Fukunaga had been tapped to replace him.

Broccoli also told The Guardian that while there are “certain things in [Bond’s] DNA that are probably not gonna change,” she does feel the tone of the films has evolved in recent years.

“Look at the way the world has changed,” she said. “And I think Bond has come through and transformed with the times. I’ve tried to do my part, and I think particularly with the Daniel [Craig] films, they’ve become much more current in terms of the way women are viewed.”

The Fukunaga-directed Bond film, with Craig back as 007, is scheduled to arrive on Feb. 14, 2020.


Poster Comment:

During the interview with The Guardian, Broccoli was asked about how critics claim Bond could be seen as being a male chauvinist in the current times. Although she didn’t directly admit to this, Broccoli did admit that Bond would ever be viewed as being a feminist.

She said the Bond story was written back in the 1950s, which means Bond has certain things in his DNA that will likely never change. (2 images)

“He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male.”

Bond movies were known for those hot female co-stars that James pile drove when not solving international crimes.

We always wanted to see who would co-star with him. Sex sells better than crime solving.

Surprised they don't pick a transsexual or a flaming lesbian or a pansy.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

Reminds me of Magnum Pi. They make Higgins who is suppose to have been in every major British skirmish of the last 40 years a young female. Then Thomas Sullivan Magnum III an Irishman by ancestor a short Hispanic man! LOL

At least they kept TC in character! Can you imagine the hell that would have come down if they replaced TC with a white guy!!!

Regressives are so out front with it that you have to be blind not to see it or just so overwhelmed that you can't see it all.
