In conversation with the Daily Mail, Bond producer Barbara Broccoli stated “anything is possible” when asked if the next actor to play James Bond could be a woman or person of color.
These films tend to reflect the times so we always try to push the envelope a little bit. 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?
Wonder Woman 2
Patty Jenkins recently spoke to ET Canada about Wonder Woman 2's “totally different” filmmaking approach.
We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us. It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].
In the same interview, Jenkins stated “there’s no lack of trying” in the seemingly Amazonian task of securing Lynda Carter for a cameo.
We’ll see. Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family. We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly—there’s no lack of trying.
