Coming from Deadline is a rumor concerning Léa Seydoux, the new “Bond” girl set to star in this year’s Spectre. Apparently she’s been offered a major female role, that of Bella Donna Bourdeux, in the Channing Tatum-led Gambit.
Bella Donna and Gambit were like a reverse Romeo and Juliet. Childhood friends despite their families of thieves being on the opposing sides of a grudge. A marriage was brokered between the two kids in an effort to unite the families (for… reasons?) until Bella Donna’s brother challenges Gambit to a fight to the death and gets his ass womped. Gambit wins, and leaves New Orleans and Bella Donna.
As for Léa, you’ve seen her rock in Inglorious Basterds, Blue is the Warmest Color, Midnight in Paris …okay fine, you didn’t see those, you uncultured swine. But you did see her in Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. She was kicked down the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. I watched the movie on a flight to Paris. It wasn’t helping.
