IT’S had a massive shake up after Phoebe Waller-Bridge was brought in to re-write the script and now Bond 25 is being shaken — and stirred — once again.
I can exclusively reveal that bosses have for the first time employed an intimacy coach to make sure the actors feel comfortable during sex scenes.
A film insider said: “Producer Barbara Broccoli and her team are going all out to bring Bond up to speed. It’s all changed in the #MeToo era and they’re going to extra lengths to make sure all the stars are getting the support they need on set, including during some of the more risqué sex scenes.
“An intimacy coordinator is now on set during those scenes and is working with Daniel Craig and new Bond girl Ana De Armas to run through the script and make sure they feel comfortable. It’s really progressive and is a step in the right direction – not just for Bond but the industry as a whole.”
The famous Bond girls, who include Eva Green in Casino Royale, look set to get a feminist touch in the new movie thanks to Fleabag writer Phoebe.
She confirmed last month that she wanted the female characters to “feel like real people” before adding: “Daniel’s films have had really fantastic Bond girls, so it’s just keeping it up.”
Production of the next instalment is on ice after Daniel hurt his ankle during filming in Jamaica.
He was flown to the US for treatment but is expected to return this week.
A source told The Sun: “Daniel was furious he suffered an injury after spending months getting into prime physical shape. It seemed a disaster at first but the injury is not severe and he will be able to film while not over- exerting his ankle.”
It’s not the first time Daniel — who has confirmed this film would be his last as 007 — has injured himself on set.
He lost two teeth, tore shoulder muscles and sliced off the tip of his finger while filming 2008’s Quantum Of Solace.
Sounds like he’s in more need of an injury coordinator than an intimacy one…
