Lot's of talk at the moment about having a female Bond. But why not have a women direct Bond too?
There’s an argument that these films aren’t as popular among female audiences, which means that women are naturally less inclined to direct them. This theory falls flat when you consider that male directors cover the whole genre spectrum, and that women also want to broaden their skill sets and take on new challenges. Then there is the wider issue of industry prejudice against women filmmakers to take into account. A recent Directors UK report on women working in the industry found that female directors are disproportionately underrepresented within certain genres, particularly action, crime, horror and sci-fi.
