I think people are putting way too much faith in this alliterate producer to change a many decades old formula for this franchise.
It took a decade of arguing back and forth at the production company about whether to have a person of color be a recurring role.
So, to change the sex of the lead would probably take two more decades of arguing.

Lashana Lynch Is Next 007 In New James Bond Film, Report Says
British actress Lashana Lynch now has a license to kill as the next 007 if a new report is to be believed. It would be the first time a white man will not play 007 in the spy movie series’ 57-year run.
The Daily Mail British tabloid, citing a “movie insider,” reported Sunday that Lynch, who is black and female, is a new character who takes over James Bond’s 007 designation in the next movie in the series after his departure from MI6. But she’s not a new Bond.
The “Bond 25” movie is currently being filmed with Daniel Craig again playing the British superspy James Bond. Bond begins the movie retired, but is recalled into action. The “popcorn-dropping moment,” according to the report, is introduced when Ralph Fiennes’ “M” says “Come in 007,” and in walks Lynch, the unnamed source told the Mail.
