Surprised on Atomic Blonde. Watched it twice and still don't remember anything. Totally forgettable movie for me.

Theron is an excellent actress and she carried Old Guard. Now that was a cracking movie.
Old Guard was a heap of fun.

James Bond is for sale

Not the first time this has happened. That was when The relationship between Harry Saltzmann and Cubby Broccoli was no longer tenable and Broccoli went looking for investors to help him buy Saltzmann out. They nearly sold half of it to Adnan Kashoggi.

Yeah, I think switching the franchise to 007: Jane Bond would be a clumsy way to be woke, and I dread to think about the screamy, frothy-mouthed reaction from the internet's dank, dark corners. There's nothing wrong with continuing to make old-fashioned, somewhat silly male power fantasies, as long as the female leads aren't useless airheads.

But I WOULD like to see a female action spy series, and I think a spinoff would be a good way to get it going. The association might help against that tendency of female-led action movies to simply be badly made. I guess because Hollywood doesn't have faith in those and so doesn't hand the reins to their A-talent.

Sorry I'm jumping in way late but

I'd be perfectly happy watching old reruns of Peta Wilson and new re-runs of Maggie O in various incarnations of La Femme Nikita any day over 007.
