Phoebe Waller-Bridge has reportedly been asked to develop a James Bond spin-off which will feature his daughter training to become a spy.
It was recently revealed that Bond has a five-year-old daughter named Mathilde after the film's call sheet was sold on eBay.
It's now being claimed that film bosses want to recruit her to write a spy franchise for his daughter Mathilde which would centre on her training to become a double agent. The writer and actress received critical acclaim for her award-winning adaptation of spy and assassin thriller Killing Eve.
'Bond bosses are very excited about 007 having a daughter and creating a new franchise around her,' a source told The Mirror.
'It is likely to feature Bond conflicted over having to train her up as an assassin combined with Waller-Bridge's trademark black humour, shown in Killing Eve. She may just offer ideas and co-produce as roles are yet to be decided, but bosses are keen to give her a big part in the film’s production.'
Waller-Bridge made history as the second woman to work on a Bond film script, but she recently explained that her hiring had nothing to do with gender.
'The reality was I got a call from Barbara [Broccoli, the film’s producer] and Daniel saying, "‘We like your work, can you come in and help us?",' she explained in an interview at Southbank Centre with The Guilty Feminist podcast host Deborah Frances-White.
'There wasn't ever really a conversation about can you come in and help us with "the ladies". They said [producers and Craig], "It will be your take, can you come aboard and help us polish the script?"
'The characters were there, the story was there, it was just really exciting to be a part of it. There was a bunch of writers, I was a small contribution to this thing.'
No Time to Die will be released in November.
