The new 007 movie has reportedly cast its Bond girl

007 fans, meet your newest Bond girl. The Daily Mail reports that Lea Seydoux has been cast as the "femme fatale" in the 24th James Bond movie.

Over the past few years, Seydoux has appeared in smaller roles in films like Midnight in Paris, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. She established herself as one of the industry's top upcoming actresses after her starring turn in last year's Palme d'Or winner Blue is the Warmest Color.

Much of Bond 24 remains shrouded in secrecy — including the film's actual title — but Daniel Craig will return as 007, leading a cast that includes Skyfall alums Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris. Filming will begin later this year, with a scheduled release date of November 6, 2015.
