With the new James Bond movie set to begin filming soon, questions have swirled over who will be the next lady to swoon over England’s No. 1 spy/seducer of foreign women. We now have an answer: Lea Seydoux.
Seydoux—who previously appeared in Blue is the Warmest Color and Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol—will play some sort of Eastern European “femme fatale” in the upcoming Bond film, althoughher role beyond that bare bones description is unclear. Indeed, very little is known about the story at all, apart from the fact that it will pick up right where Skyfall left off.
Core cast members Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw, and Naomie Harris will all be back, along with Skyfall director Sam Mendes. The movie won’t be released in the U.S. until November of 2015, so expect plenty of concrete details to be revealed between now and then.
