James Bond girl Rosamund Pike is set to be reunited with her ex-boyfriend in the screen version of JANE AUSTEN's Pride And Prejudice.

The Die Another Day actress, 25, will play JANE BENNETT opposite KEIRA KNIGHTLEY's ELIZABETH BENNETT and her former lover of six years, actor SIMON WOODS - who has been cast as her onscreen suitor MR BINGLEY.

A spokesperson comments, "I am sure it will be just fine. Rosamund and Simon are both grown ups and besides, they are good friends."

Pike dated Woods while they were both students at OXFORD UNIVERSITY - but ended the relationship last summer (03).
