Casino Royale has been in theaters for less than a month, but already we're picking up intelligence about the next installment. One of our agents on the West Coast has learned both Daniel Craig (who we think was awesome) and Judi Dench will return for Bond 22, which has not yet been given an actual name. We now know that our new favorite Bond girl Eva Green's character (Vesper Lynd) will indeed by back in the next flick.
Green recently told Entertainment Weekly that Vesper Lynd will be a central figure in the film. 'They're going to do a second [movie] where you'll understand what's going on in her mind. Green also gave some details about her Algerian boyfriend and who might be the next villain.' 'The Algerian boyfriend was something light, and affair. So there's an internal conflict. The plan is, the Algerian boyfriend is going to be the baddie in the second Bond, and we'll understand [better].'
Screenwriters Robert Wade and Neal Purvis also gave some details to BBC News. 'In the next film the emphasis has to be on the unfinished emotional business at the end of Casino Royale,' explained Wade. 'It has to be dealt with in such a way that his character continues to have an arc.' We can't wait to learn more and see more of the lovely Eva Green.
