Léa Seydoux the star of Blue Is The Warmest Colour is rumoured to have agreed to star in Bond 24. With production set to start on the follow-up to Skyfall in just six weeks it is widely expected that more and more cast members will be announced opposite the returning Daniel Craig, Ben Wishaw, Naomi Harris and Ralph Fiennes. Seydoux is apparently set to play a femme fatal who will cause no end of grief for Bond, James Bond. Of course this being Her Majesty’s finest you wouldn’t rule out a little hanky-panky between the sheets when dealing with the dangerous lady.
Léa Seydoux has form in playing morally ambiguous women in spy franchises having given Tom Cruise a run for his money in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. She’s most famous for her Cannes winning performance in Blue Is The Warmest Colour but has also been recently seen in the likes of The Grand Budapest Hotel, Sister and Grand Central. She’ll next be seen in opposite Vincent Cassel in Beauty And The Beast (no prizes for guessing which she’ll be) before starring opposite Colin Farrell and Mr. Craig’s wife Rachel Weisz in sci-fi rom-com The Lobster.
Bond 24 meanwhile is still yet to be given an official title but as the follow-up to Skyfall, the biggest grossing film of the franchise and the biggest grossing British film of all time, it has no matter of pressure on its shoulders. The good news is that after much debate Skyfall director Sam Mendes is returning to bring some of his very welcome style to 007. Source – The Daily Mail via Yahoo Movies.
