As I’ve written before for this very site, I do not care about James Bond or the exhausting speculation as to whether he will someday not be a white man. However it’s come to my attention that someone I actually do care about, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, has been hired to make James Bond interesting.
The Guardian reports that Daniel Craig reportedly requested Phoebe Waller-Bridge to help punch up the script for his new James Bond movie. Craig and Rachel Weisz are reportedly fans of Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag and Killing Eve, to which I say: Get in line!
Waller-Bridge will reportedly add more humor to the new Bond film, known as Bond 25, which sounds like a great idea. This hiring also makes her only the second woman writer to work on the Bond franchise, the first being Johanna Harwood, who worked on Dr. No and From Russia With Love in the 1960s.
The question now is: can Waller-Bridge come over and punch up my life? Just, add a few notes here and there, or some cutting little quips I can yell to my loved ones?
