Could the James Bond series finally hire a woman to direct? That’s the latest word from behind the scenes of Bond 25, as producers MGM and Eon have reportedly added two more names to the shortlist of directors that could possibly replace Danny Boyle. One of those names is said to be S.J. Clarkson, the longtime TV director who’s worked on everything from Marvel’s Jessica Jones and Defenders series to recent HBO fave Succession.
Paramount is ready to take the Enterprise somewhere it’s never been before, by putting a woman in the director’s chair for the very first time in the history of the iconic sci-fi film franchise. In almost 40 years of Star Trek movies, not a single one has been directed by a woman, but that’s about to change.
