Producers: Pierce reckons Bond producers wouldn’t allow a gay Bond

“Sure. Why not?” he said, before adding: “Actually, I don’t know how it would work.”

“I don’t think [Bond producer] Barbara [Broccoli] would allow a gay Bond to happen in her lifetime. But it would certainly make for interesting viewing.”
