Pierce Brosnan has stressed the need to have a female James Bond in the popular movies filmed with the name.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Pierce said it’s now time for a woman to take on the role as the movie had in 40 years dominated by male.
“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 said. “I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting”.
Four-time James Bond actor continues by saying, “James Bond has a certain significance and a deep pride,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “I will be asked about him until my dying days — it just goes with the territory. He’s a beloved character.”
CNN further stated that, the 25th James Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig, will grace theaters in the UK on April 3 and travel over to the US by April 8 and will be titled “No Time to Die.”
Notably, Daniel Craig has been spotted many times in London and environs while filming scenes for the movie and had been reported to injure his ankle in May while filming in Jamaica.
CNN’s Doug Criss and Lisa Respers France reported that putting Bond back in Jamaica gets the character back on familiar ground. The very first Bond film, 1962’s “Dr. No,” was filmed on the island, as well as 1973’s “Live and Let Die.”
Ralph Fiennes, Rami Malek, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux and Jeffrey Wright costar in the film. Cary Fukunaga is directing.
