Fleabag and Killing Eve creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge has revealed that she is writing a feature film that she plans to direct and will likely end up starring in.
The actress and writer told The Hollywood Reporter about her new project, which she began working on after her critically acclaimed TV series Fleabag ended.
She said: "The day I wrapped Fleabag, I went to bed thinking, 'I'm never going to have another idea again. Oh s***'. I woke up with the vision of this film."
The 34-year-old British star told the publication that she won't take the project to market until it's finished and that she wants to release the film in cinemas.
Despite not wanting to appear on camera, she conceded: "I blatantly will end up in it."
Waller-Bridge recently was brought in by James Bond producers to punch up the script for the upcoming 25th Bond movie.
She explained what it was that interested her in the project.
"There's something about James Bond that always intrigued me in a similar way that Villanelle did," she said, referencing Jodie Comer's Killing Eve assassin.
"They live a fantasy! But it's a life none of us would ever want, if we're honest. We don't want to go put a bullet in someone's head to sleep with people and have martinis. It's a kind of fantasy nightmare."
When asked about reports of Bond 25 actress Lashana Lynch picking up the 007 mantle, she said: "The whole thing has potential to birth new iconic characters all the time."
Waller-Bridge added of the project: "A lot has been made of me coming on board because I'm a woman, and that's wonderful.
"But also I can't take credit for the movie that was written. It's Cary's [Bond writer-director Cary Joji Fukunaga] movie."
