Casting News: Rosamund Pike to star in Johnny English 2

While Rosamund Pike is still circling and yet to be confirmed to play the role as Moira MacTaggert for the reboot of X-Men: First Class movie with James McAvoy, one thing that's just been reported and is at least for certain and not a rumor is Rosamund starring in a sequel to Rowan Atkinson (aka Mr. Bean)'s comedy spy James Bond spoof film, Johnny English Reborn. I think RP will be great on this one...and it's comedy, so she gets to be funny here like she did with An Education. Also, Rosamund's other and now completed film, Varney's Version will premiere at this year's Toronto International Film Festival in September.

Here's the article from Press Association (and UK's The Daily Mail here ... you can also read another possible casting news for Judi Dench there as well):
Rosamund Pike for Johnny English 2

Former Bond girl Rosamund Pike is to star as a sexy secret agent once again in Johnny English 2.

The 31-year-old blonde bombshell - who played an MI6 analyst in Die Another Day - will star opposite Rowan Atkinson in James Bond spoof Johnny English Reborn, The Daily Mail reveals.

The Mr Bean star plays bumbling British spy English, who found himself thrown in at the deep end in the 2003 original, where he was taught to hone his skills by Australian singer Natalie Imbruglia as his sexy sidekick.

St Trinian's director Oliver Parker will be taking the director's chair for the sequel from a script written by Hamish McColl, who also penned 2007's Mr Bean's Holiday, which starred Rowan.

The actor originally created the comedy character of Johnny English for a series of credit card adverts he appeared in.

The film is due to begin shooting in August and Rosamund will join the production in September following the world premiere of drama Barney's Version, which is being shown at the Toronto Film Festival.
