For the actress, James Bond should be played by a man, not a woman, as some speculations report.

“There is no need for a female Bond,” he said. “There shouldn’t be any need to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over. This is a novel, and it leads into this world of James Bond and this fantasy of that universe that he’s in.”

Ana de Armas played Paloma, a CIA agent who assists Bond in his mission. Her character has proven to be quite popular, and the actress says she would like to see more female roles in the franchise.

“What I would like is for the female roles in the Bond films, even though Bond is still a man, to be brought to life in a different way.” she said, who added: “May they receive a more substantial role and recognition. That’s what I find more interesting than turning things around.”

Recently, the star of Run! revealed if he was going to play the special agent, but ended up going down a very different path.

James Bond future undefined

Barbara Broccoli, head of the franchise, revealed to the deadline that a casting call has not yet been made to find a new James Bond actor.

“No one was called. We’re working out where to go with him, we’re discussing it,” she said.

Daniel Craig left the role of Bond after 13 years of playing the character. Broccoli claims that there is still no script for a new film, and that they intend to reinvent Bond.

There’s no script and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next movie because it’s really a reinvention of Bond.” “We are reinventing who he is and that takes time. I would say filming is at least two years away.”

One of the actors that fans are asking a lot to take on the role of James Bond is Henry Cavill, but it’s something that may not happen.
