Ana de Armas on James Bond: Female 007 would ‘steal’ the story.

The No Time to Die alum instead said female roles in the 007 franchise should be “more substantial,” rather than just changing the lead.

Ana de Armas doesn’t waste time thinking about who the next James Bond should be.

The No Time to Die alum told The Sun that a woman shouldn’t play Bond in the franchise, which producer Barbara Broccoli has billed as a “reinvention” for the famous character.

“There’s no need for a female Bond. It shouldn’t be necessary to steal someone else’s character, you know, to take over,” de Armas explained. “This is a novel and it takes you into this James Bond world and this fantasy of this universe that it’s in.”

she continued “What I would like to see is that while Bond will continue to be a man, the female roles in the Bond films would be brought to life differently. That they get a bigger role and recognition. I find that more interesting than turning things around.”

De Armas will star in upcoming John Wick assassin spin-off Ballerina, reportedly written by Academy Award winner Emerald Fennell. The ‘Blonde’ actress also starred in Netflix’s ‘The Gray Man’ with rumored Bond frontrunner Regé-Jean Page.

De Armas’ comments directly align with previous statements by producer Broccoli about Bond as a “male character” and how he will “remain a man” in theatrical adaptations.

“I believe in making characters for women and not just letting women play male roles,” Broccoli said in a previous Hollywood Reporter profile. “I don’t think there are enough great roles for women and it’s very important to me that we make films for women, about women. He should be British, so anyone can be British [ethnicity or race].”

Former Bond star Daniel Craig, who portrayed the 007 spy in five films, said the rationale was “very simple‘ she says RadioTimes”There should be better roles for women and actors of color. Why should a woman play James Bond when there should be a role as good as James Bond for a woman?”

Regardless, there’s still no news on who will take over Bond. Broccoli revealed that the next film is at least two years away.

“Nobody’s in the running,” Broccoli said, staying mum over deadline during a BFI fellowship dinner. “We think about where to go with him, we talk it through. There’s no script, and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next film, because it’s really a Bond reinvention. We’re reinventing who he is, and that takes time.”
