After Daniel Craig left the role of 007 after No Time to Die, the search for the next Bond has begun. Producer Barbara Broccoli seems to dismiss the idea that an actress could take on the role.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the famous 007 producer Barbara Broccoli, explained why he doesn’t see a Bond woman in the franchise after No Time to Die:
“I think it will be a man because I don’t think a woman should play James Bond“he explained. “I think you have to make characters for women and not just for women to play men’s roles. I don’t think there are enough great roles for women, and it is very important to me that we make films for women about women..”
These comments coincide with the opinion of Daniel Craig himself on the matter. “There just should be better roles for women and actors of color“he said in September.”Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a role as good as James Bond, but for a woman?“
It’s no secret that Daniel Craig’s days as 007 are over (especially after the cast of No Time to Die made an emotional farewell video to say goodbye to their James Bond), but now comes the difficult task of finding a replacement.
In the last two years, we have seen many proposals, with Idris Elba being a popular choice with fans. We’ve even seen Dwayne Johnson jump into the ring to ask for the role of the iconic superspy. But Broccoli seems to have already ruled him out.
“Should be british“he added.”British can be any [etnia o raza]”This obviously leaves the door open for a black or underrepresented Bond, as long as he’s British. But one thing’s for sure: she’s unlikely to be a woman if Broccoli so chooses.
Although we are looking forward to knowing who the next James Bond will be, it seems that Broccoli is in no rush to find a substitute.
“I want to let this movie play and really celebrate the incredible achievement that Daniel has made for 16 years“, He said. “People always ask, ‘Oh, who is the next James Bond? It is like asking a bride when she is going to go down the aisle who her next husband is going to be. I don’t want to think about who’s going to be next until it’s absolutely necessary“.
