The new James Bond will be an English man

The suggestion of a 007 woman will remain only that. A boutade. Daniel Craig had already anticipated it. Barbara Broccoli reiterated this. “I think he’s going to be a man because I don’t think a woman should play James Bond,” explained the producer. In command since GoldenEye of 1995 with Pierce Brosnan. «I believe in creating characters for women. And not in the fact that women play roles created for men.

The next James Bond will have to be very sure that he wants to become the spy in the service of Her Majesty. “When you choose the actor to play Bond, you know it’s a 10, 12-year commitment,” Broccoli makes clear.

It was hard enough to convince Daniel Craig. That he was in his thirties at the time. “

He said, “I really want to be a part of it, all the time.” And then he regretted it », laughs amused the daughter of Alberto Broccoli, one of the creators of the James Bond myth. “Seriously, it’s a big commitment. It’s not just a couple of months of filming ».
