James Bond will always be a man on screen.
Rumors have been swirling on what the next iteration of the character would be after Daniel Craig leaves the role. Reports had Emily Blunt attached in gender swap of the character.
Bond producer Barbara Broccoli put an end to all of those rumors.
“Bond is male. He’s a male character. He was written as a male and I think he’ll probably stay as a male And that’s fine. We don’t have to turn male characters into women. Let’s just create more female characters and make the story fit those female characters.”
Production has been pushed back to March of 2019. The film will now be released on February 14th, 2020.
