As Daniel Craig prepares for his final arena tour as British agent James Bond, leading franchise producers will soon have to find a successor for him.
However, the producer of the series and Bigg Boss Ian Productions, Barbara Broccoli, confirmed that the role of Agent 007 will be male.
In recent months, there have been several rumors about the identity of who will play Agent 007 after the departure of Daniel Craig. Some color actors want to get this part, while others demand women to star in the next film.
On Sunday, Barbara Broccoli, however, indicated that there was no question of changing the way James Bond plays a woman.
“James Bond is a male character,” she told PA Media, a British agency.
The man who holds the reins of the franchise, however, hopes that many other films starring women will be produced.
As Barbara Broccoli explained, “I don’t think you have to play the male role and play it a woman.”
In an interview with the Radio Times, Daniel Craig recently said he wants to create better characters for women and colorful actors.
