The next 007 won't be a woman, according to the franchise's longtime producer.
She continued: “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."
Back in November, Daniel Craig, who currently stars in the titular role, confirmed that he’s done playing James Bond following his upcoming starring role in “No Time To Die," which is set to premiere in April.
“I’m in total denial,” Broccoli said of the actor's exit. “I’ve accepted what Daniel has said, but I’m still in denial. It’s too traumatic for me.”
After "No Time To Die," Craig will have starred in five Bond films over the span of his career.
