When rumors first surfaced at the end of the summer that Léa Seydoux was sought for a role in “Bond 24,” we took a wait and see approach. Would the actress want to return to franchise territory after mixing it up in “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol,” or was she content doing indie and arthouse fare? Well, it looks like we have our answer.
Baz Bamigboye reports that Seydoux has joined “Bond 24” as the femme fatale. So does this mean Seydoux is the “bond girl” for this film? We’ll see, but the stiletto heel fits, and certainly .007 hasn’t had the best of luck with the women he beds in the Daniel Craig era. For a super spy, the guy really can’t see trouble when it’s right in front of him, but we digress.
Seydoux will join Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris for a read through of the script at the end of November before cameras roll in December. “Bond 24: Titled To Be Determined, But Hopefully Better Named Than Skyfall” will open on November 6, 2015.
