Bond 25 continues to gain momentum as it has been announced that the old "Bond Girl" Léa Seydoux will resume her role as Dr. Madeleine Swann.
Seydoux's character was last seen with Daniel Craig's James Bond in Aston Martin DB5 at the end of SPECTER, while Bond seemed to be retiring to join his new love interest.
Swann was the daughter of the recurring villain Mr. White (Jesper Christensen), a SPECTER agent, whom Bond saved from the classic villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Christoph Waltz).
The Daily Mail has confirmed its involvement in director Cary Joji Fukunaga, Craig apparently wishing that she will come back to life.
Fukunaga also confirmed the likely return of MI6 regulars Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q and Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny.
"You have some of the best actors in the world here, why do not I come back the best?"
The news that the film will continue directly from SPECTER comes after Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has fled the project due to creative differences with producers and Craig.
Reports differed between disagreements on themes, villains and castings, but the exact problem has not yet been confirmed.
Previous rumors that the character of Seydoux was originally written by the screenplay, but that Boyle rejected, saw Bond once again on a personal vendetta after his character was killed in the first scenes .
Will Swann come out alive in Fukunaga's vision?
Fukunaga also recently hinted that Waltz could also return as SPECTER's boss, Blofeld, in his film.
Bond 25 is expected in cinemas on February 14, 2020.
