A lot has been speculated about the next actor to take up the mantle of the most famous spy in the world: James Bond. With Daniel Craig parking the Aston Martin for good after the upcoming No Time To Die, the search is on for the next spy with a licence to kill. One option that has gained some traction is a female James Bond (or Jane avond). For those who were looking forward to this, series producer Barbara Broccoli says it is not happening in an interview with Variety:
“He can be of any color, but he is male,” says Broccoli. “I believe we should be creating new characters for women — strong female characters. I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”
After the release of the upcoming film, we will certainly hear more and more rumours about potential castings. Many famous names are being rumoured right now, like Tom Hardy and Idris Elba. It’s also possible that a lesser known actor will be chosen, much like Daniel Craig when he was cast in 2006’s Casino Royale.
No Time To Die will be in theatres on April 2nd 2020.
