Wow, first the Bond 24, a role she’s actually been rumored for for some time now.
The news comes from Baz Bamigboye at The Daily Mail where he says she’s signed on to play the femme fatale in the new 007 adventure, which starts filming in six weeks. She will reportedly meet her co-stars including Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, for a script rehearsal in late November.
Bamigboye adds that the role was originally targeting an of Scandinavian origin, but it was then changed to French. He says the film will also feature an Italian connection as “the 007 crew have scooted over to Rome to look for some Bond heavies.”
If the November table read news is firm it means we should have an official announcement for Seydoux shortly along with any other new actors joining the cast and possibly a title for the 24th Bond adventure.
The film is set for a November 6, 2015 release with Sam Mendes back to direct following the massive success of Skyfall.
