From hot priest to hot archaeologist.
Since the success of Fleabag, Waller-Bridge has been on serious fire. She went on to create Killing Eve…
…then worked as a writer for the next James Bond movie No Time to Die (she shares screenwriting credits on this one with director Cary Joji Fukunaga and longtime Bond writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade).
And she’s also set to co-star with Donald Glover in Amazon’s TV series reboot of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which they will both co-create and exec produce for.
For the record, Steven Spielberg will NOT be returning to the director’s chair for Indiana Jones 5. Although, composer John Williams will return to score, continuing a tradition he started 40 years ago with Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Instead, acclaimed director James Mangold (Logan, Walk the Line, Girl, Interrupted) will be taking the reins.
Waller-Bridge’s casting also marks a bit of a reunion for her and Lucasfilm. She voiced the character L3-37 in Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Basically, Waller-Bridge is busy AF, and now she’s going to be in Indiana Jones, and IDK how she does it, but I’m excited for all of it!
Indiana Jones 5 is scheduled to hit theaters on July 29, 2022!
