The producer for the James Bond movie series suggested a future 007 agent could be “nonbinary.”
During an interview on the Girls on Film podcast, producer Barbara Broccoli was asked whether a female would play the next James Bond.
Broccoli admitted that she believes a man will always play the character, but she said a better solution would be a “nonbinary” 007 who identifies as neither male nor female.
“Who knows? I mean, I think it’s open,” she said. “We just have to find the right actor.”
Broccoli has shut down the idea of creating a female James Bond before, even though the franchise’s last movie, No Time to Die, featured a female agent who took on the role of “007.”
It isn’t the first time Broccoli, the daughter of longtime series producer Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, has stepped into the woke fray over the character’s future.
Broccoli’s family holds the rights to the franchise and has long asserted creative control over the character, created in 1953 by British writer Ian Fleming.
“He can be of any color, but he is male,” Barbara Broccoli said back in 2020.
Already though, the MI6 spy and notorious Lothario has seen his longtime philandering toned down.
The character’s most recent portrayer, Daniel Craig, instead opted for an emotionally complex and scarred figure who approached his many love interests with a mutual respect befitting the #MeToo era.
“I believe we should be creating new characters for women—strong female characters,” Broccoli said. “I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”
The Left’s gender ideology has taken over pop culture but has become common in politics now, too, thanks to the Biden administration.
Earlier this year, for example, the State Department celebrated “International Pronouns Day.”

“These pronouns include the gender-neutral they/them/theirs—words that traditionally refer to a plural number but that today are used by some individuals who identify as gender nonbinary or who prefer not to share gender information,” the department said in a blog post.
“Other pronouns include the feminine she/her/hers and the masculine he/him/his,” it added. “Some people are pioneering gender-neutral pronouns such as ze/zir/zirs.”
