The story is said to begins with Bond retired in Jamaica before he was called by spymaster M (Ralph Fiennes) who calls him back to help tackle a new global crisis.
“There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says ‘Come in 007’, and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman.
It’s a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman.
Bond, of course, is sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks, but is baffled when they don’t work on a brilliant, young black woman who basically rolls her eyes at him and has no interest in jumping into his bed. Well, certainly not at the beginning”, says the insider.
31-year old Lynch had her breakthrough role as the fighter pilot Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, released earlier this year.
Lynch made her debut in the 2011 drama Fast Girls and has also appeared in Silent Witness and Death In Paradise.
