Producer of James Bond films,Barbara Broccoli has ruled out of making the character a female after Daniel Craig’s departure.
No Time To Die, which will be released in April,2020 marks Craig’s final outing as 007, and his replacement has not yet been announced.
“James Bond can be of any colour, but he is a male.I believe we should be creating new characters for women – strong female characters. I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”Barbara said.
The forthcoming Bond film will see actress Lashana Lynch play a female 00 agent after Craig’s Bond has left active service.
