Writer and performer Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who wrapped up the New York premiere of her hit solo play Fleabag April 14, has been recruited to work on the script for the upcoming James Bond film, according to The Guardian. Currently known as Bond 25, in lieu of a yet-to-be-announced title, the movie is set for release in 2020.

Waller-Bridge was brought onto the project at the request of star Daniel Craig.

Helmed by Cary Joji Fukunaga (who replaced original director Danny Boyle), Bond 25 features a script by James Bond screenwriters Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, with additional rewrites by Scott Z. Burns.

Waller-Bridge is also the creator and showrunner of the BBC America thriller series Killing Eve starring Golden Globe winner Sandra Oh. The show, based on Luke Jennings’ Codename Villanelle series, kicked off its second season April 7 on BBC America.

The playwright, screenwriter, and actor is also behind a television adaptation of Fleabag, which returns for a second season this spring. As recently announced, Fiona Shaw and Kristin Scott Thomas are set to guest star.

Before heading Off-Broadway, Fleabag played sold-out runs in the U.K. and around the world. The solo play stars Waller-Bridge in the title role. Check out photos from opening night in New York City below.
