James Bond, 007 Will Always be a Man

The next James Bond will not be a woman, the movies’ producer said in an interview, as speculation mounts about who could replace Daniel Craig. 51 anni, as the legendary 007.

Mr.. Craig is due to step down after the latest Bond film, “No Time to Die,” which will be released in April.

Rumors abound over who could replace him and whether the next Bond will be female but Barbara Broccoli said it would definitely be a man.

“He can be of any color, but he is male,” said Ms. Broccoli, a producer of the film alongside Michael G. Wilson.

The Bond franchise is 1 of the movie world’s most lucrative, with 2015’s “Spectre” raking in $880-M at the box office worldwide, while “Skyfall” in Y 2012 grossed more than $1-B globally.

Ms. Broccoli said she believed in creating strong female characters, but added: “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.”

Have a terrific holiday weekend.
