Pierce Brosnan and American actress Denise Richards on the set of "The World Is Not Enough".
"I believe we have already seen how the guys are doing this for the last 40 years", said 66-year-old Brosnan. "I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting", he said.Talking about the ramifications of the #MeToo era and how it would affect the franchise, Brosnan said that it would have to change with the times.
Craig, the reigning Bond, told Variety in an interview that "of course" the iconic spy could be played by a woman in the future.
James Bond's treatment of women in previous films has come under question in recent years and Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge was brought on to the writing team, tasked with making its female characters "feel like real people".
Brosnan is now scheduled to shoot a Netflix comedy with Will Farrell and Rachel McAdams.The next James Bond film, No Time To Die is expected to be Daniel Craig's last. I don't think that's going to happen with the Broccolis. If you see any 007 movies, women always play their love interest and femme fatal instead of them playing any meaty role.
Brosnan previously endorsed Tom Hardy as the next Bond, telling The Mail on Sunday in 2018, "I think Tom Hardy could be a good Bond. It is written as a man and probably stays as a man". Long ago, many voices are looking for agent witness 007 to pass a woman to her next stage.
This comes after former 007 actor Pierce Brosnan said it could be time to give the role to a woman amid rumours Lashana Lynch is in the pipeline to take over from Daniel Craig.
"There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says 'Come in 007, ' and in walks Lashana who is black, attractive and a woman", a Bond insider previously claimed.
