Director of #Woke James Bond Film: Bond Was Previously "Basically a R@pist," You Know

The director of the new James Bond film says that the character was previously "basically a rapist."

Current James Bond director Cary Fukunaga has claimed in an interview that the iconic 007 played by Sean Connery was "basically" a rapist.

The NYU grad noted the questionable sex scenes in the classic 1960s' movies and told The Hollywood Reporter how he would help update the famous British spy for the #MeToo era.

"Is it Thunderball or Goldfinger where, like, basically Sean Connery's character rapes a woman?" Fukunaga asked, referring to two of the six Bond movies that starred Connery, who died last October.

"Shes like 'No, no, no,' and hes like, 'Yes, yes, yes,'" Fukunaga, 44, said.

"That wouldn't fly today," he told the trade mag.

...

Barbara Broccoli, who has been producing Bond films since 1995, praised Fukunaga for bringing Bond up-to-date in the upcoming "No Time to Die," which is Daniel Craig's last time playing the suave spy.

"I think people are coming around -- with some kicking and screaming -- to accepting that stuff is no longer acceptable. Thank goodness," she said of previous sexism and questionable sex scenes in older movies.


...

"You can't change Bond overnight into a different person. But you can definitely change the world around him and the way he has to function in that world," he said.

"It's a story about a white man as a spy in this world, but you have to be willing to lean in and do the work to make the female characters more than just contrivances."

Of course, this is the film in which the 007 codenumber is given to a black female character, who then demeans and bullies James Bond.

And Waller-Bridge really fought to give the Nomi character depth, which means... talking about her weight issues and her period or something.
