It’s time for a woman to save the world. At least Pierce Brosnan thinks so.

The four-time James Bond actor told The Hollywood Reporter it’s now time for a woman to take on the role. “I think we’ve watched the guys do it for the last 40 years, get out of the way, guys, and put a woman up there,” Brosnan told the outlet. “I think it would be exhilarating, it would be exciting,” he said.
The films he made as the well-dressed adventurer were the highlights of his career, he said. “James Bond has a certain significance and a deep pride,” he told The Reporter. “I will be asked about him until my dying days — it just goes with the territory. He’s a beloved character.” The 25th James Bond movie, starring Daniel Craig, will grace theaters in the UK on April 3 and travel over to the US by April 8.
It will be titled “No Time to Die.”
Craig has been spotted multiple times around London while filming scenes for the movie and the actor injured his ankle in May while filming in Jamaica.
Putting Bond back in Jamaica gets the character back on familiar ground. The very first Bond film, 1962’s “Dr. No,” was filmed on the island, as well as 1973’s “Live and Let Die.”
Ralph Fiennes, Rami Malek, Rory Kinnear, Ben Whishaw, Naomie Harris, Lea Seydoux and Jeffrey Wright costar in the film. Cary Fukunaga is directing.

Here are the actresses bookies believe have a chance.

Charlize Theron

The South Africa-born Hollywood star and Oscar winner has been given the shortest odds to turn her talents to the Bond franchise.

Theron may bring award-winning acting ability to the role of the sophisticated British agent.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge

Drafted in as a writer for the latest instalment following her breakout success with Fleabag, and the hit drama Killing Eve, the British actress has a chance of taking on more of Bond than the script.

The comic star has already vowed to make women in the franchise “feel like real people”.

Jodie Comer

The Liverpool-born actress has proven herself adept in the world of fictional espionage and assassinations.

As the sanguine Villanelle, Comer won plaudits for her dramatic ability, which could stand her in good stead as 007.

Margot Robbie

After her breakout role in The Wolf Of Wall Street the Australian actress has gone on to have success in Suicide Squad and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

The leading lady has been given long odds to take on the mantle of Bond.

Claire Foy

Claire Foy has already felt the pressure of playing a UK institution and symbol of Britishness.

Her time play Queen Elizabeth in The Crown could help her adapt to the expectations placed on the female 007.

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has been doing her bit to save the world through her work as a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees.

She has been included in the running to save the world from fictional terrors as the famous British agent.

Jodie Foster
