Rachel Weisz Explains Why There Shouldn't Be a Female Bond

Rachel Weisz, who is married to current James Bond actor Daniel Craig, is sharing her thoughts on a woman possibly playing the famous role.

The Oscar-winning actress told The Telegraph why she doesn’t think a woman should play the role.

“[Author Ian Fleming] devoted an awful lot of time to writing this particular character, who is particularly male and relates in a particular way to women,” Rachel said. “Why not create your own story rather than jumping on to the shoulders and being compared to all those other male predecessors? Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories.”

Daniel will star in the 25th Bond movie, set for release on November 9, 2019.

    They need to stop doing remakes or “female versions” of other characters. Bond was made a looonngg time ago and the books reflect that. We need someone current and new.

    I agree, I never understood why there is no agent 005, 006 or 008 or 009, they only focus on 007, why not create a movie telling about an agent working in the same universe as 007, which has, for example, the nickname 008 and let it be a woman.

    They were extremely close to having a Jinx movie but it fell through due to Halle Berry being box office poison.

  • moody

    She’s absolutely right.

  • Casey C

    in the books there are other OO agents (he even shares an office with one or two of them) so theres no reason they couldn’t bring them in. the Bourne series did it (relatively successfully money wise and I liked the movie)

  • LegalBetch

    Totally agree. You want a female Bond? Just go watch Atomic Blonde.
