" creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge
has been roped in to lend her offbeat style to the script of the new James Bond
film, known as of now as Bond 25
. According to The Guardian
, Waller-Bridge has been specifically requested by actor Daniel Craig
, who plays 007, to bring her wit and quirkiness to the screenplay. Craig, who lives in New York with his wife Rachel Weisz
, is a fan of "Fleabag
", which reached the end of its second series last week, and also of "Killing Eve
", which Waller-Bridge developed.
Sources close to the film in the Us said that while in New York she discussed with Craig how to improve the script of Bond 25
, which the 007 actor felt needed some "polishing", by introducing more humour and the offbeat style of writing she is best known for.
Before Waller-Bridge, there has only ever been one female writer - the Irish-born Johanna Harwood
