Rachel Weisz Speaks Out Against a Female James Bond

Rachel Weisz

"Women are really fascinating and interesting and should get their own stories", she adds.

Craig confirmed in August that he would be starring in the next Bond flick, likely his last, despite once saying he would rather "break glass and slash my wrists" before signing on again.

Over the past several years, actresses like Gillian Anderson, Priyanka Chopra, and Emilia Clarke have all thrown their hats into the ring to play James Bond, the eternal British spy.

Her comments come off the back of Luther star Idris Elba suggesting the suave spy could perhaps be played by a woman. Many have wondered whether it's time for a woman to step into the iconic role, but one person who isn't a fan of that idea is Rachel Weisz.

While flipping the gender of characters that have been historically male is no doubt a triumph, James Bond is probably one that we can leave be. From Ghostbusters to the new Doctor Who, characters who have always been presented as straight, usually white, men have been reinvented as women.

It's bound to be twisted and stretched in a manner that would make people wonder just what makes others think that James Bond could never be a female character, but I agree with Weisz that it shouldn't happen.

While Weisz raised a good point, only time will tell when it comes to who will be the next thespian taking their martinis "shaken, not stirred".

When Craig decides not to renew his license to kill, Tom Hardy's name has also been mentioned for the role. the star of Dunkirk and The Dark Knight Rises has previously said that he'd be happy to play Bond in a film that's directed by Nolan. "I can't wait", Craig stated in an interview with Stephen Colbert. For now, however, Eon Productions has to get started with filming the 25th movie with Craig, which has a November 2019 theater date.
