Tradecraft: Gillian Anderson Joins Johnny English Sequel
Is the new Johnny English movie a reboot? Deadline London reports that the title is now Johnny English Reborn. Of course, it still stars Rowan Atkinson as the bumbling secret agent, thank goodness. Could it be a parody of reboots? That I'd love to see! Anyway, the real news in the trade blog's story is that The X-Files' Gillian Anderson will go from FBI agent to MI7 agent (the branch of British Intelligence for which Johnny English works–just as 007 did in Dr. No), joining Atkinson in the previously announced sequel/reboot/whatever. Natalie Imbruglia played the first "English Girl."
