No Time to Die producer Barbara Broccoli stated that the next James Bond will not be a woman.
With the term of office of Daniel Craig as James Bond decided to close with the release of No Time to Die, many fans of the 007 franchise are already looking to the future by proposing to potential actors to take on the iconic role. Of course, efforts continue to be made to modernize the 007 film series by throwing a woman or person in color as the next James Bond.
No Time to Die producer Barbara Broccoli, who oversees the James Bond franchise with her half-brother Michael G. Wilson, stated that although a colored man could become the next person to take on the role, a woman will not his next 007. Instead, Broccoli made the cast for creating new characters or women instead of taking a male character when replacing them with a woman:
“He can be any color, but he is male. I think we need to create new characters for women – strong female characters. I am not particularly interested in taking a male character and having it played by a woman. I think women are much more interesting than that. “
What do you think of Barbara Broccoli’s argument to keep James Bond a man after No Time to Die? Let us know your expectations for the future of the James Bond franchise after No Time to Die in the comments below!
