Every James Bond needs a Bond girl and it is thought that Daniel Craig has already picked his for Bond 25 – Monica Bellucci.
Bellucci had a small role in 2015’s Spectre as Lucia Sciarra, who Bond sexed up after killing her husband, but now Craig is reportedly keen for more screen time with the Italian actress, who at 53 would be the oldest Bond girl in the history of the franchise.«He wants Monica Bellucci back, that’s for sure,» a source close to Craig told The Mirror, although it is not yet known if negotations with Bellucci have begun for the upcoming 2019 film.
Recent reports have claimed that Bond may be married in the 25th film in the series, with a script leak suggesting that Lea Seydoux’s character Dr. Madeleine Swann had married Bond and he had left the secret service for a happily ever after. «Bond quits the secret service, and he’s in love and gets married,» said a Hollywood insider to the New York Post’s Page Six column, just as did George Lazenby.
But the source bleakly added Bond will return to the secret service after his wife is killed in order to exact his revenge; the film is rumoured to be a remake with a new name Shatterhand, an alias of Bond villain Blofeld’s in the novel You Only Live Twice. Craig will return as Bond after months of uncertainty following a fractious press tour for Spectre in which he claimed he would rather slit his wrists then return to the character.
