Recently, The Daily Mail asked James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli if 007 would ever be played by a woman or a person of color.
Her answer is nothing less than an industry sea change, and it's currently making seismic waves in the trades, all of whom have rushed to report this amazing announcement.
Here’s her response in full:
“These films tend to reflect the times so we always try to push the envelope a little bit,” she said. “Anything is possible. Right now it’s Daniel Craig, and I’m very happy with Daniel Craig, but who knows what the future will bring?”
Today will be long remembered as an historic one, and many a blogger flew to their keyboards to let the world know that yes, Eon Productions might cast a woman or a person of color to play James Bond. It’s possible, she said.
“Anything is possible.”
Think about what this means.
“ANYTHING is possible.”
