Lea Seydoux confirmed to return for new James Bond movie

Lea Seydoux will return to star in the new James Bond movie. 

Seydoux, who took a key role in Spectre as Doctor Madeleine Swann, has been confirmed to return by new director Cary Fukunaga.

Fukunaga, who is best known as the creator of True Detective, took the role of director on the new Bond after the departure of Danny Boyle earlier this year. 

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Fukunaga said when asked about Seydoux: "Lea will be returning".

He also confirmed that Ralph Fiennes, Ben Whishaw and Naomie Harris will also be back. 

Production on the new Bond will begin on March 4th in 2019, with the film hitting cinemas on February 14th in 2020. 

Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, the screenwriters on Skyfall and Spectre, have returned to work on the new movie, which is widely expected to be Craig's last as 007. 

Spectre, Bond's last outing, is out now on DVD and available to order from hmv's online store by clicking on the icon on the right-hand side of the page. You can check out the full Bond catalogue here in hmv's online store.
