Meet "Q'ute"

The fine James Bond fansite Dr. Shatterhand's Botanical Gardens has scored a major scoop! It's appears the next James Bond film, codenamed Bond 23, will reboot the charcater of Q as "Q'ute", the female gadget master from the John Gardner James Bond novels.

The website reports that supergirl actress Laura Vandervoort has been offered the role of Dr. Ann Reilly (aka "Q'ute"). MGM publicity manager, Walter Stern says, "She will be one of the new additions to the already rebooted Bond series and sexual tension and innuendos will abound."

"Q'ute" first appeared in the bestselling 1981 James Bond novel License Renewed by John Gardner. She became a standard recurring character in the 14 novels that followed. Considering the success of Judi Dench's M, movie audiences are sure to embrace a female Q!

Happy April 1st.
