James Bond producers are “reinventing who Bond is”

quote:

Bond boss Barbara Broccoli says Bond is about to undergo a long-overdue makeover

In a new interview, lead Bond producer Barbara Broccoli confirmed that they're at least two years away from starting production on the next instalment in the series because they're in the process of “reinventing” the character. “It’s a reinvention of Bond,” Broccoli told Deadline. “We’re working out where to go with him, we’re talking that through."

As for potential candidates to fill Craig's shoes… “Nobody's in the running”," she said. "We’re reinventing who he is and that takes time. There isn’t a script and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next film. I’d say that filming is at least two years away.”

All this talk of "reinvention” (she used the word three times) will spark further rumours about the direction the franchise is set to take next, with Idris Elba long-tipped to become the first Black James Bond, and many backing the casting of a woman in the role (after Lashana Lynch last year became the first female 007). But perhaps the reinvention will lead to a younger Bond? Perhaps one of the Heartstopper lads will take a swing at it. Baby Bond has a nice ring to it…

You mean a Bond that exhibits NONE of the masculinity of older Bonds and gets paired with an overly masculine female character that gets more screen time? That's not a "reinvention", it's the same tired shite we see in every movie and show.

There's nothing wrong with re-inventing a character; like how they have done every time they change to a new Bond. That said, with the direction entertainment is going, we'll have a tranny, pansexual, minority as Bond.

What I'm hoping they're doing is crafting a story and aesthetic around the strengths of who they cast for the role. If it's Elba, maybe it's more of a procedural, thriller type film, if it's someone younger maybe more action oriented. Though I think they'll change from that since Craig's bond was more of an action movie type character.

Nothing good.

Bond does not belong to this ridiculous era of mankind. Let him be dead. But they can't because acceptance and equality will never be enough.

This. At this point, it would be best to just let the character be cosigned to the history of film like other classic franchises. Let him live on in the continuation novels and leave him to the fans who love him for the personality that he is.

Unless they are going to do one-offs of Bond during the Cold War era, or allow him to actually be Bond, there is no point. Call him something different if the character needs to be "reinvented." Bond doesn't belong in this pussified world.

All this tells me is that they have no idea what to do with the character.

well, I'm sure whatever it is will be extraordinarily well-received. What could possibly go wrong?

I never thought I’d agree with letting the Bond character die, but I do now.

If they're planning on putting him/her/it in a fantabulous banana spider costume, they're going to have to go back to the drawing board.
