Moneypenny gets a new makeover

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Miss Moneypenny is back. M’s Bond-hun­gry sec­re­tary – in the mind-bog­glingly sex­ist world of Flem­ing’s books, “spin­sters” were fair game – last graced a 007 film in 2002’s Die An­other Day. It has been an­nounced that tal­ented Naomie Har­ris will es­say the role in Sam Men­des’s as yet untitled es­pi­onage ad­ven­ture. It is rea­son­able to as­sume that the new Ms Moneypenny will be treated with a lit­tle more re­spect. No bad thing.
