Danny Boyle To Make A Feminist James Bond


Last week Danny Boyle confirmed he will direct the next James Bond film which will be the last instalment with Daniel Craig as 007.

The filmmaker announced that he and long time collaborator John Hodge, who scripted Trainspotting, were working on the screenplay for Bond 25 promising to modernise the franchise.

Although he is keeping his cards close to his chest stating he would be ‘a fool’ if he revealed any spoilers, Boyle did add that the series will evolve to address the #MeToo and Time’s Up movement when it comes to the role of women.

When asked by Page Six about the portrayal of women in the upcoming film, Boyle replied:

You write in real time. You acknowledge the legacy of the world of Bond and you write in the world – but you also write in the modern world as well.

Although Boyle still kept things vague, it appears that Bond will finally meet his match in female form after decades of being labelled misogynistic and sexist.
