Lynch’s Nomi may be 001 instead of 007, tabloid says

Lashana Lynch publicity still released during April “reveal” event in Jamaica

The tabloids never sleep. The Mail on Sunday (Sunday edition of The Daily Mail) is out with a story saying that Lashana Lynch’s character in No Time to Die may have a code number of 001 instead of 007.

Here’s the key excerpt:

However, plans for her (Lynch) to become the first black, female 007 – taking over the codename from (Daniel) Craig’s Bond after he retires – could be scrapped after a social-media backlash. Sources say she is now likely to get another agent number, 001.

This possibility has caused a lot of angst on social media among Bond fans. As recently as a Nov. 6 Hollywood Reporter feature story on Lashana Lynch and Ana de Armas said Nomi having the 007 code number was still the plan.

There’s a lot of the usual tabloid stuff with the new story. For example, the headline says declares No Time to Die is the “wokest” James Bond film.

  1. If “No Time To Think Of A Better Title” is the “wokest” James Bond film, out of curiosity then, what’s the “sleepest“James Bond film?
