One of No Time to Die's writers has found himself might have invited some trouble with his recent comments about Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The James Bond movie sees the Golden Globe winner join onboard Bond 25 to tweak the No Time To Die script. In a day and age of #MeToo, she's brought in a few changes. While fans have to wait until November 2020 now to find out how much of her writing has influenced the new James Bond movie, No Time To Die's writer Robert Wade subtly took a dig at the writer in his recent interview. 

Speaking with Mirror UK, Wade expressed his thoughts on the Fleabag star. During which he said that he feels Phoebe is "very witty" for a woman. His exact words being: "For a woman, she is very witty." He almost immediately clarified that it was a joke. 

He did not hold on to the awkward moment for too long and addressed the misogyny tag associated with Bond movies. The writer confessed it didn't bother him. "There haven’t been many women involved and obviously it’s a good thing for women to be involved. When we were in the middle of this whole process, the MeToo thing came about. It was interesting for me to reflect on because I’d never worried about the portrayal of women in our movies. If they are not strong characters, then it makes Bond look weak," he said. 

"We had an idea of what the next Bond film should be. It was a very specific idea but a very brave idea," he said, speaking about No Time To Die. "We spent a lot of time thrashing it out. It was slightly ­experimental and felt like that’s what we needed to do. We went to New York to talk to Daniel and he was on board for doing something kind of different. I’m not sure we fully pulled it off. But there was a certain amount of ­nervousness about it," he added. 

No Time To Die now releases on November 12, 2020. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.

First of I will let you I am big fan of James bond movies and big fan of Danial Craig as James bond but One thing I will let you James bond should be one only one in this movie so now there is another character as a 00 which make Danial Craig push back, may be he is lead bond .but how you can put two 00 in one movie My experience is this movie will be not hit, this will make us disappointed cause Danial will leave this franchise after flop movies . Danila Craig can do 2 more movies if Roger Moore can do it . I wish good luck for upcoming bond movie but honestly it will not hit .
