Naomie Harris’s Eve Moneypenny may more closely resemble Halle Berry’s Jinx than Lois Maxwell’s Miss Moneypenny in Bond 24 if a REPORT BY BAZ BAMIGBOYE in the Daily Mail is correct.
Director Sam Mendes, (Daniel) Craig, and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are all big fans of Naomie’s and don’t want her to be too desk-bound, as other Moneypennys have been.
‘The idea formulating in Bond-land is for Naomie to be much more of a sidekick to James, and for her to get out and harm the bad guys,’ an executive close to the production told me.
Bamigboye scored a number of scoops during the making of Skyfall, including that Harris’ character would be revealed as Moneypenny. He was the first to report that the writing team of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade were leaving the 007 series after five films. So we’ll see if this pans out.
