Did 007 never think she could be a woman or black? Well, she's both! James Bond will hand over his license to kill the character of actress Lashana Lynch when he retires in a new film scenario prepared by Phoebe Waller-Bridge
- In a & # 39; popcorn dropping moment & # 39; the actress gets the number from Bond
- Bond girls have been renamed Bond women in the new film
- The new Bond film pays tribute to the past 007 films
Since Daniel Craig announced that he would resign as James Bond, the debate has raged whether the next 007 should be a woman or black.
Now The Mail can reveal on Sunday that they will be both – thanks to the intervention of the feminist TV writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
In what a & # 39; popcorn dropping moment & # 39; is mentioned, British star Lashana Lynch gets the license from Bond to kill in the 25th film in the franchise, which is currently being shot in Italy and the UK.
Enter in 007: British star Lashana Lynch comes in when the James Bond spy number is called
However, traditionalists can relax: she is not the new Bond, but a new character who takes over his secret agent number after leaving MI6.
The story begins with the withdrawal of Bond in Jamaica. But Spymaster M – played by Ralph Fiennes – calls him back in desperation to tackle a new global crisis.
A film insider said: & # 39; There is a crucial scene at the beginning of the film where M says & # 39; Come in 007 & # 39 ;, and walk in Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.
& # 39; It's a popcorn dropping moment. Bond is still Bond, but he has been replaced as 007 by this beautiful woman.
& # 39; Bond is naturally sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is stunned when not working on a brilliant, young black woman who essentially rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not in the beginning. & # 39;
The source added that the expression & # 39; Bondgirls & # 39; is now banned and says: & # 39; We were all told that from now on they should be treated as & # 39; Bond women & # 39;. & # 39;
Waller-Bridge, who wrote the BBC comedy Fleabag and the female-led thriller Killing Eve, was recruited to ensure that the 57-year-old franchise kept up with the times. She said: & # 39; A lot has been said about whether Bond is relevant or not because of who he is and how he treats women.
007: Daniel Craig in action in the new movie that promises to be full of humor
& # 39; I think that is the b ****** & # 39; s. I think he is absolutely relevant now. [The franchise] has yet to grow. It still has to evolve, and the most important thing is that the film treats the women well. He doesn't have to. He must remain faithful to his character. & # 39;
Mrs. Lynch, 31, had a breakthrough role as yacht rival pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, released earlier this year.
Filmmakers create an avatar of the face of Daniel Craig for dangerous stunts
The wish of Daniel Craig to do all his own stunts with the new Bond movie was thwarted by an injury.
But now producers have come up with a high-tech solution that is worthy of Q, so that it looks like it is in the shadow of the promotion.
Wizards with special effects have made a computer avatar from the 51-year-old star, allowing his face to be digitally added to the body of his stunt double – the Frenchman Jean-Charles Rousseau, 31.
Craig was forced to change his stunt plans after injuring an ankle while filming a chase scene in Jamaica in May. In his 13 years as a Bond, he also broke two teeth, dislocated a shoulder, sprained a knee, and cut off the tip of one of his fingers.
A source said: & # 39; Daniel is in top form, but there are some scenes that he cannot do because they are too physically challenging. Moreover, the insurance company will not allow him. So his face will be added later. & # 39;
Originally from Hammersmith, West London, she made her debut in the drama Fast Girls 2011, appeared in Silent Witness and Death In Paradise and was a regular cast member on the short 2015 BBC show Crims. She also played Rosaline Capulet in the American period drama series Still Star-Crossed, placed after the death of Romeo and Juliet.
The source said: & # 39; Lashana is absolutely brilliant and the Phoebe script is just as sharp and funny as you would expect. This Bond pays homage to some of the earlier films with a lot of humor. & # 39;
Indeed, a photo taken on a set shows Lynch in a safari color similar to that of Roger Moore that he wore famous when he played 007.
& # 39; This is a modern-era band that will appeal to a younger generation while remaining true to what we all expect in a Bond movie, & # 39; the source added. & # 39; There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he has to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo. & # 39;
So hopefully the script will be the least of the problems for a movie that has already been hit by the replacement of the original director Danny Boyle, an injury to Craig and a crew member who is injured by an explosion on the set.
