James Bond Will Always be a Man, Says Producer Barbara Broccoli

James Bond Will Always be a Man, Says Producer Barbara Broccoli

Broccoli says James Bond can be of any colour, but has to remain male.

"I believe we should be creating new characters for women - strong female characters". I think women are far more interesting than that.' Quite.

Others connected to the world of Bond appear to agree with Broccoli about the gender of Craig's replacement, notably Eva Green, who played Vesper Lynd in 2006's Casino Royale.

No Time to Die, released in April, will be Daniel Craig's final 007 appearance.

While Broccoli may not want a female actress to front a James Bond movie, the upcoming flick does feature a female 007, in the form of British actress Lashana Lynch's character Nomi - who takes over his codename when Bond is in retirement. Women can play different types of characters, be in action movies, and be superheroes, but James Bond should always be a man and not be Jane Bond. We can probably guess that the campy, overly fantastical events of past films isn't going to be coming back anytime soon.

MS Dhoni not included in BCCI's new annual player contracts
The trio of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah has been fitted into the Grade A + category, who will receive INR 7 Cr. Meanwhile, head coach Ravi Shastri had recently revealed that Dhoni may soon end his ODI career.


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

Craig's era has, in contrast, more closely resembled the original character Ian Fleming wrote. "Daniel's acting was terrific, but he wasn't a pretty-boy".

Craig had originally indicated he would not return to the series, but agreed to film one more after speaking with Broccoli. The answer is no, as it turns out, at least not while Barbara Broccoli is in charge.

"I had a nice long break, which I really needed".
