James Bond producer insists the character ‘will remain male’

The producer of the James Bond films has insisted that the main character of franchise will remain male, ruling out making it female.

“James Bond can be of any colour, but he is male,” producer Barbara Broccoli told Variety.

“I believe we should be creating new characters for women – strong female characters.

“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.”
