Blue Is The Warmest Colour's Lea Seydoux is expected to become the latest Bond girl, while Django Unchained's Christoph Waltz is thought to be playing a villain in the sequel.


"It’s not immediately evident whether the part’s friend, or foe, or a bit of both," a source told the Mail, adding that his character is "extremely cunning" and "a nemesis of sorts".

The tiny Austrian town of Obertilliach is believed to be among the shooting locations for 007's next outing, along with a car chase in Rome and a sequence in Morocco.
