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.
