Funny British Women - Here To Save The Blockbuster
Given that Fleabag season 2 was just about the best thing of the year so far – anywhere and in any form whatsoever!! – and yes, we’re including the return of GOT (and the return of BGT, for that matter), we here at Last Word Mansions are bordering on ecstatic at the news that the peerless Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been brought on board to polish the script for Bond 25. At Daniel Craig’s invitation, no less. Just think how perfect the line “I’ve spent most of my adult life using sex to deflect from the screaming void inside my empty heart” would be coming out of 007’s mouth! Could be epic!
And Waller-Bridge is not the only one. Amy Jump, best known for the darkly twisted Prevenge and for her numerous collaborations with Brit indie king partner Ben Wheatley has just signed on to pen the screenplay for the next Tomb Raider. God knows, we don’t need another TR after the lack lustre last outing. But with Jump onboard, there is some hope.
Is it too soon to call two such events a “movement?” Probably, but we’re calling it anyway.
