Phoebe Waller-Bridge Reportedly on Board to Liven Up the James Bond Script

-

Fleabag creator and star Phoebe Waller-Bridge has reportedly been hired to liven up the script for the 25th James Bond movie. According to The Guardian, “she has been specifically requested by Daniel Craig, who plays 007, to bring her wit and quirkiness to the screenplay.”

Craig is said to be a fan of Fleabag and also of Killing Eve, which was developed for television and is executive produced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The site adds that “sources close to the film in the US said that while in the country she discussed with Craig how to improve the script of Bond 25, which the 007 actor felt needed some ‘polishing’, by introducing more humour and the offbeat style of writing she is best known for.”

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced earlier this year that the release date for United Artists Releasing‘s Bond 25 was pushed back from February 14, 2020 to April 8, 2020.

Daniel Craig will return as 007 in the 25th James Bond film. He has played the secret agent in four films so far, including Casino Royale (2006), Quantum of Solace (2008), Skyfall (2012), and SPECTRE (2015). He also made a guest appearance as Bond in the Danny Boyle-directed opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, alongside Queen Elizabeth II.

Léa Seydoux is expected to reprise the role of Dr. Madeleine Swann from SPECTRE in the next James Bond film. Swann is the daughter of Mr. White who helps Bond identify the organization known as SPECTRE. Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris will also be back. Cary Joji Fukunaga will direct from a script by Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.
