James Bond is both a top secret agent with a license to kill and a notorious womaniser.
But it appears Bond might be a one-woman man now. At least, it looks as if 007’s bae from Spectre is returning to the next Bond movie, the 25th in the franchise.
According to The Daily Mail, the director of the next Bond movie, Cary Joji Fukunaga, has announced that french actress Léa Seydoux will be returning to the franchise.
“Léa will be returning,” Fukunaga told the Daily Mail. Presumably, Seydoux will be reprising her role as Dr Madeleine Swann, psychiatrist and the main love interest in Spectre.
It has long been confirmed that Daniel Craig will also be returning for his role of James Bond in the next movie, which is set to premiere in 2020.
“Why wouldn’t I have the best coming back?”
Fukunaga went on to explain that he’s also be bringing back Ralph Fiennes, who plays the character M, along with Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris, who play Q and Moneypenny, respectively.
“You have some of the best actors in the world here,” Fukunaga said. “Why wouldn’t I have the best coming back?”
Only once before has a “Bond girl” returned to the franchise after her relationship with Bond was over. Octopussy actor Maud Adams returned in View to a kill, but in a different role.
If we go on and assume that Seydoux is returning as Bond’s girlfriend, she will be the first “Bond girl” to be the main love interest in two films.
Well, Swann and Bond did make a pretty damn good couple in Spectre.
Mashable has reached out to representatives for Léa Seydoux and Cary Joji Fukunaga for comment.
