^^^^what he said. A smoking hot female James Bond thats a chauvinist towards men. One movie only. In my opinion it would work. I dont think Gina Carano would be cast in the role because shes American and something tells me she cant do accents very well lol. I dont think a James Bond or Bourne " spy type " of character would work good, either ( or as good ) because thats been done and not to the success of the better Bond movies. I do think gender bending the exact role would. Of course top level talent in front of and behind the scenes will be crucial, but a variation like this could be successful. Judi Dench completely works as M and actually has incredible chemistry with the Craig Bond. I know it's not the same thing but it proves that the franchise is powerful and can (and does) experiment once in awhile. I wouldnt mind seeing Sean Connery playing the role one more time. He already played the " aged " Bond, why not the elderly. He's still cool as @#$!. P.S. - let me change my opinion on one thing. Carano doing her own character with a good supporting cast and behind the scenes talent would definitely work. She is a beautiful woman and not the worst actress as far as action stars go.
