Seydoux will star alongside Daniel Craig as Bond, Ralph Fiennes as M, Ben Whishaw as Q, and Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny. Sam Mendes, who directed Skyfall, will be returning to direct the upcoming Bond 24.

Seydoux will meet her co-stars in late November when they have a read through of the script scheduled, as the Mail reports. Before then, Seydoux will be screen tested so the producers, costume designers, make-up and Mendes can decide on her 'look' for the upcoming film. 

The 29-year-old French actress is best known for her roles in such films as Inglorious Basterds (2009), Midnight in Paris (2011), The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) and Saint Laurent (2014).
