Female bond fighting racism\sexism incoming lol

I'm a huge bond fan. But if this happens. No.

Hmm they could but probably won't. They make too much money with good old Bond.

They will probably just extend the agreement, milk it to death, then decide meh someone else can have this tired old franchise lol

It's a 20+ film series. If it isn't milked to death by now then it won't ever be. We love Bond.

It's Sony Pictures, I'm sure they will find a way lol

Let's hope it doesn't end up in SJW sympathizing hands.

I don't know if Sony will give up on a new deal so easily. It's about the only reliable franchise they're attached to right now. They squandered Girl With The Dragon Tattoo sequels, screwed up on the last Spider-Man and their new Ghostbusters is in uncharted waters.
