While details surrounding the 24th Bond film are still highly classified, one key element may have been revealed: the identity of the film's Bond girl.
The Daily Mail reports that Parisian actress Léa Seydoux will join the film as a "femme fatale." Nothing else has been revealed about her character, but according to the newspaper, Seydoux "will undergo a series of costume, make-up and camera tests so that director Sam Mendes and the film’s producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson can determine her ‘look’."
Seydoux has genre experience, having played the dangerous Sabine Moreau in Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. She also starred in the Cannes 2013 Palme d'Or-winning Blue Is the Warmest Color, based on the graphic novel by Julie Maroh, and appeared in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds and Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel.
She'll be joining Daniel Craig's 007, as well as Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris and Ben Whishaw, all of whom appeared in Skyfall, Mendes' previous Bond film.
The still-untitled film is slated to begin production at the end of the year, for release on Nov. 6, 2015.
