People are demanding Jennifer Coolidge become the next 007 after seeing her with a gun

People are demanding Jennifer Coolidge become the next 007 after seeing her with a gun

People are demanding Jennifer Coolidge be cast as the next 007 after watching her in a trailer for a new film.


The sneak peek at Shotgun Wedding has people on social media going wild as they witness the star sporting a semi-automatic weapon pumping some bullets in slow-motion.

While the Prime Video movie like another classic Jennifer Lopez romantic comedy, the trailer shows a twist that no one saw coming.


Look, if you can upstage J-Lo on the big screen, then you must be doing something right.

Even though Coolidge isn't the lead in Shotgun Wedding, she steals every scene she is in (at least in the trailer).

Twitter has lit up with suggestions that the actor take up the iconic role of 007: "MAKE JENNIFER COOLIDGE THE NEXT BOND, YOU COWARDS."

One woman has done a cracking impression of Collidge as Bond.


One person called for he to simply be in every film until the end of time, writing: "Jennifer Coolidge as the next Doctor, the next James Bond, and the next Star Wars Sith Lord."


The next 007 has a big question mark over the actor taking on the role, with the folks at Eon Productions deciding the character needs to be older.

Well, Stifler's Mom is the gal for the job. She can handle a gun. She can handle a drink. She can bend and she can snap. What more could you want in a hero?

While the role of 007 has been ambiguous over the past few years, Eon Productions know they want the next person playing James Bond to be a man.


James Bond boss Michael J Wilson also recently revealed they want the next actor who will take over from Daniel Craig to be in a certain point in their life.

He said (as reported by Deadline): "Remember, Bond's already a veteran, he's had some experience.

"He's a person who has been through the wars, so to speak.

"He's probably been in the SAS or something, he isn't some kid out of high school that you can bring in and start off - that's why it works for a 30-something."


That means the likes of Tom Holland, Tom Hardy and Idris Elba are seemingly out of the running to be the next Bond, which will no doubt be devastating to those who were rooting for the actors to take on the role.
