Lynd’s boyfriend to be Bond 22 baddie?

Eva Green on the “Casino Royale” sequel


Beautiful “Casino Royale” Bond babe Eva Green tells EW that her character Vesper Lynd will be back as a central figure in the next 007 jaunt – well, kinda.

‘They’re going to do a second [movie] where you’ll understand what’s going on in her mind’, Green tells the magazine, adding that Lynd’s Algerian boyfriend may be in the next one. “The Algerian boyfriend was something light, an affair. So there’s an internal conflict. The plan is, the Algerian boyfriend is going to be the baddie in the second Bond, and we’ll understand [better]”.

Meantime, screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade tell BBC News a little bit about their plans for Bond 22, due out in November of 2008.

“In the next film the emphasis has to be on the unfinished emotional business at the end of Casino Royale,” says Wade. “It has to be dealt with in such a way that his character continues to have an arc.”
