This long running movie franchise is making noise by stating a replacement for the long running male character could end up being a woman.
They don’t mean what they are saying though.
It will be a white male again and again.
They are kind of like People and all their awards.
They talk it but they don’t walk it.
Next James Bond could be black or a woman, says 007 producer: Barbara Broccoli says ‘anything is possible’ once Daniel Craig walks away
Television heart-throb James Norton has been tipped to be the next James Bond — but could the War & Peace star be the wrong sex and colour?
For producer Barbara Broccoli, who is in charge of the highly lucrative spy series, has dropped a big hint that 007 could next be played by a black or female actor.
Barbara, 57, whose father Albert ‘Cubby’ Broccoli turned Ian Fleming’s espionage novels into the world’s biggest spy film franchise, was asked if we could expect to see a female Bond or a black 007.
‘These films tend to reflect the times so we always try to push the envelope a little bit,’ she replied. ‘Anything is possible.
‘Right now it’s Daniel Craig, and I’m very happy with Daniel Craig, but who knows what the future will bring?’
Barbara has already reinvented Bond once, from the tall, dark-haired smoothie most memorably portrayed by Sir Roger Moore, to Craig’s muscle-bound, blond assassin.
Craig, 49, declared in 2015 that he would rather ‘slash his wrists’ than play 007 again, but was persuaded last year — with the help of a reported £100 million pay cheque — to sign up for his fifth mission.
Broccoli’s close friend Sir Roger Moore is, sadly, no longer around to raise his objections to any radical changes to Fleming’s character. – Source
