Pierce Brosnan and American actress Denise Richards on the set of "The World Is Not Enough". "I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting".

James Bond is a typical character who already has a recognized franchise, and was always played by male actors. "He was written as a male and I think he'll probably stay as a male", Broccoli told The Guardian last October.

Brosnan told The Hollywood Reporter: "I don't think that is going to happen under their watch".

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".

" I will be inquired about him until my dying days- it simply chooses the territory", Brosnan continued. "I was honored to play the role and I rejuvenated a franchise that had been dormant". I think Bond will continue in the same vein.

Brosnan also noted that he doesn't think a female Bond will happen until the action-spy franchise changes up its creative team.

He added: "The #MeToo movement has been relevant and significant and well needed in our society, so they'll have to address that".

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. In April of 2019, Barbara said a female Bond was pretty much an impossibility, arguing that Bond is simply a male character and that "we have to create female characters and not just for a gimmick turn a male character into a woman". "It's a popcorn-dropping moment".

But GMB co-host Susanna Reid, 48, was quick to defend the idea of James Bond being a woman, as she hit back: "But 007 is a position, not a man so why would it be a problem?"
