Pierce Brosnan says it’s time for a female James Bond and wants the guys to ‘get out of the way’

2019-09-09

The man credited for reinvigorating the legendary James Bond franchise during the 1990s is ready to see a woman take on the role as 007.

Pierce Brosnan, who wore the tuxedo and drove the Aston Martin through four James Bond movies, said it’s time for the guys to “get out of the way.”

“I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years,” the actor told The Hollywood Reporter. “Get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there. I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting.”

Brosnan first took on the role of Ian Fleming’s most famous character in 1995's “Goldeneye,” followed by “Tomorrow Never Dies” in 1997, “The World Is Not Enough” in 1999, and 2002's “Die Another Day.”

“Captain Marvel” actress Lashana Lynch will reportedly take over the “007” designation, at least, in the forthcoming James Bond franchise film, “No Time to Die.” Daniel Craig still stars as James Bond.

The 25th James Bond film since 1962 hits theaters April 8, 2020.
