'Blue Is the Warmest Color' Star Is Your Newest Bond Girl

'Blue Is the Warmest Color' Star Is Your Newest Bond Girl

Oct 10, 2014

James Bond keeps getting older, but the Bond girls keep getting younger. Blue Is the Warmest Color star Léa Seydoux, who we’ve seen in American hits such as Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Midnight in Paris, has been cast in the role of a femme fatale in the still unnamed Bond 24 movie. 
The upcoming 007 film starts shooting in six weeks. Seydoux will be working with director Sam Mendes, who returns after Skyfall, and the film’s producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson to nail down her look, undergoing a series of costume, makeup and camera tests. She’ll join costars Daniel Craig (who will also return for Bond 25), Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw for a table read in November.
“The Bond 24 storyline originally called for an actress of Scandinavian origin, but that idea was dropped for one with French,” advises the Daily Mail. The outlet also teases that Bond 24 will have an Italian connection as “the 007 crew have scooted over to Rome to look for some Bond heavies.” Bond 24 has until November 6, 2015 to develop a better title. Let’s hope for something sexier than Skyfall.
