Director Antoine Fuqua revealed the details of a conversation with Bond producer Barbara Broccoli recently,
in which she said "it is time" for a non-white actor to take on the iconic role. Fuqua discussed who might be
next in the running with Broccoli, who's certain the progressive move "will happen eventually",
with Idris Elba a reported frontrunner for the role.
Quentin Tarantino and Spike Lee have actually been working on a project with Idris as Bond. It's not just a
version of Bond with a black Bond, it's a complete re-imagining of the James Bond world. It's got more of a
blaxploitation vibe to it while still staying firmly in the spy genre. The tone is hard to describe because it's a
new thing that we haven't really seen before in film.
This was actually an idea a long time ago and the illuminati has been trying to suffocate it. The massive Sony hack revealed
in 2014 that then-studio cochair Amy Pascal told a colleague, "Idris should be the next Bond." Daniel Craig doesn't
want to do James Bond anymore, he's tired of getting tied to the Bond Character.
Quentin, Spike and Idris making a Bond film together which would be
amazing. Idris Elba would be perfect as Bond. The illuminati don't want this project to forward though
and they're trying to kill it while they stall.
James Bond is owned by the Brocolis - who are a front for the Mafia illuminati. Why do italians own the rights
to James Bond? The illuminati long ago realized that owning an Iconic character like James Bond was a license for
printing money. James Bond is like a Marvel Character - a piece of intellectual property that can always be monetized.
That's why they bought the rights to James Bond.
Now that they own Bond though they're trying to control the
direction the character is taking. The illuminati don't wan't a black man to play Bond. They are so racist, they can't
Idris himself has been advocating that the next Bond should be a woman. Idris said, “Are we interested in having
a Bond character other than being a male? Could be a woman, could be a black woman, could be a white woman,
but I think, that character, everybody would like to see it have - do something different with it, why not?”
Idris' idea is a great one. There should be a female equivalent to James Bond. I don't know if we should make James female though,
obvious the name would have to change. Jane Bond?
It would be cool to go against expectations and play with the role as a woman but it would also completely change the character.
You can't flip flop between James and Janes Bond, there can only be one Bond.
Maybe at some point it would be to flip the expectations completely, but I think the next move should be casting a black James Bond.
Casting a black man as Bond is also
going against expectations and breaking a glass ceiling.
It would also help MI6 recruit non-white spies. It would also send a message in british society that people of African descent are
just as cool and suave as any other british man.
Rather than making James Bond into Jane Bond, I think we should create a role that is as iconic and cool as James Bond. There have
been a lot of female femme fatale movies but they aren't really the equivalent of an empowered spy like Bond who's untouchable
and always one step ahead of everyone.
I think the character of Modesty Blaise is the equivalent to James Bond in complexity and coolness.
Modesty Blaise is a British comic strip featuring a fictional character of the same name, created by author Peter O'Donnell and
illustrator Jim Holdaway in 1963. The strip follows Modesty Blaise, an exceptional young woman with many talents and a criminal past
who becomes a spy.
Here's a summary of how I, Lucifer, one of the books in the Modesty Blaise series, could be adapted. The movie would begin with Modesty Blaise
dining with her side kick Willie Garvin - who would be interesting as a gay agent (in the books they are always platonic friends). Willie and Modesty are
meeting with a Rene the French head of Intelligence.
They are discussing a curious protection racket being set up by organized crime relying on a pyschic who can protect people
from being murdered.
After they leave, Rene and Modesty/Willie are each followed by groups of hitmen/women who are trying to eliminate them. A really cool
action set piece is played out as the various assasins try and kill our heros in Paris.
This is the start of a rather strange story about Lucifer, a "young man with a godlike body, dark hair and a ruined mind" who had
been studying to go into the church when he was seduced by a woman and suffered a nervous breakdown, becoming convinced that
he was the source of all sin, and therefore the devil himself.
After organzied crime discovers Lucifer's uncanny
ability to predict forthcoming natural deaths they set up a worldwide protection racket around his abilities. The movie would follow
Modesty and Willie as they infiltrate organized crime, work to take down the bad guys and rescue Lucifer.
You have all the makings of a
franchise around a well defined female super spy who has a great side kick (unlike Bond who's solitary). Modesty Blaise is like James Bond
but it's also completely its own thing.
There's already been a lot of interest around Modesty Blaise but the illuminati don't want to allow it. They made a film in 1966 that was a small
success. They released another version in 2003 that was pretty crappy. The illuminati don't want a really great version of Modesty Blaise to be made.
The illuminati hate women and they
are scared of women being portrayed as action heros. They don't want a female equivalent of James Bond.
I know Quentin Tarantino has always
been interested in making a Modesty Blaise movie (Vincent is reading Modesty Blaise in the bathroom scenes of Pulp Fiction).
Quentin's been trying to do an adaption for decades but the Illuminati won't let him.
Maybe it would be cool to have a woman direct as well.
Personally, I'd love to see a version of Modesty Blaise from Tarantino. I don't
think we should assume that all female driven action movies have to be directed by women (a la Wonderwoman). That's like saying
all male action driven movies should be directed by men.
