Producer Rules Out Female 'James Bond'

The TV commercial which will be shown in over 75 countries gives a fresh perspective on Daniel Craig’s iconic portrayal of James Bond

Speaking to Variety magazine, Bafta winning director Broccoli said: "He can be of any colour, but he is male". So that's about as close as we're going to get to a "female bond" - a new character that does the same sort of thing, but isn't making huge changes to an established character.

While audiences may be calling for more diversity in movies, the filmmaker, who is the daughter of the original 007 producer Albert R. Broccoli, said she is not "particularly interested" in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.' Quite.

The news comes amid mass speculation as to who will replace Daniel Craig, who has played the martini-sipping spy since 2006's "Casino Royale".

Idris Elba has often been mentioned as a successor to Craig, and bookmakers believe Last Christmas star Henry Golding, or Bafta-winner Daniel Kaluuya could have a chance at becoming the new 007.

Lynch was seen in character for the first time in the trailer, reigniting the conversation about whether James Bond himself could be re-cast as a woman for the next film. "We take that responsibility seriously".

The film's plot involved a giant space laser and an invisible auto.

Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux and Jeffrey Wright will all return for the 25th movie in the popular film series. The answer is no, as it turns out, at least not while Barbara Broccoli is in charge. "And then she was just persistent and came to me with some ideas, which we started formulating, and I got excited again".
