With the 25th James Bond film in the works, Daniel Craig’s final 007 flick is reportedly undergoing a revamp courtesy of actress/writer Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
According to a report in The Guardian, the 33-year-old star and creator of Amazon Prime Video’s “Fleabag” — and let’s not forget writer/showrunner of the critically acclaimed first season of “Killing Eve” — “has been brought in to liven up the script of the next James Bond film.”
As The Guardian reports, her skills were “specifically requested by Daniel Craig” in order to “bring her wit and quirkiness to the screenplay.”
Craig, who lives in New York with wife Rachel Weisz, has reportedly been meeting with Waller, who has been in NYC for the past few weeks starring in a stage production of “Fleabag”.
“Sources close to the film in the U.S. 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,” adds The Guardian.
Details about the still-untitled Bond film are being kept under wraps, although it’s been rumoured that Oscar-winner “Bohemian Rhapsody” star Rami Malek will be playing the film’s villain.
