James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli has provided more details as to who would portray the next 007 agent.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Broccoli explained that the next titular agent will be a British man of “any ethnicity.” When asked to discuss the future of the character, she also explained why the agent will never be played by a woman and will continue to be played by a man,

“I think it will be a man because I don’t think a woman should play James Bond. I believe in making characters for women and not just having women play men’s roles. I don’t think there are enough great roles for women, and it’s very important to me that we make movies for women about women. He should be British, so British can be any [ethnicity or race].”

Broccoli also confirmed that the company is taking its time to search for the next Bond after Daniel Craig explaining, ” I want to let this film play and really celebrate Daniel’s incredible achievement that he has done over 16 years.” She adds, “People always ask, ‘Oh, who’s the next James Bond?’ It’s like asking a bride as she’s going up to the altar who’s her next husband going to be. I don’t really want to think about who is going to be the next person until I absolutely have to.”
