James Bond fans are in for a double treat as the successful movie franchise is about to have its title star played by a Black woman, according to a report on Sunday.
According to the Daily Mail the new 007 will be played by British star Lashana Lynch.
In what’s been called a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’, Lashana, will be given Bond’s licence to kill in the 25th movie in the franchise, currently being shot in Italy and the UK.
Relax before you loose your marbles, she’s not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after Daniel Craig’s character leaves MI6.
The story begins with James Bond retired in Jamaica. But spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.
A movie insider said: “There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman. It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman. Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don’t work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning.”
The source added that the phrase ‘Bond girls’ is now forbidden, saying: “We were all told that from now on they are to be addressed as ‘Bond women’.”
