Is it time for a woman to play 007?
Former James Bond star Pierce Brosnan has said it is time for a woman to take on the film role.
The Die Another Day actor was speaking ahead of Daniel Craig’s fifth and expected final outing as the British spy.
“I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there!” Brosnan, 66, told the Hollywood Reporter.
“I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting.”
But he suggested that franchise producer Barbara Broccoli would not be up for the idea.
“I don’t think that’s going to happen with the Broccolis. I don’t think that is going to happen under their watch,” he said.
Filming for the next Bond film has begun in Jamaica, as well as in London and at Pinewood Studios.
Dr Who is now played by a female so is it time to have a rethink about 007?
What are your views? Would you like to see Jane Bond? Is it time to have Bond ‘boys’ instead of Bond ‘girls’? Or are you happy that 007 remains a man?
