Regé-Jean Page is set to get hearts racing once more. The Bridgerton stud might be stepping away from the Netflix Regency romance, but he's trying his hand at a new heist thriller on the subscription service.
Though little is known about the project, one thing is certain: we'll 100% be tuning in, and we're burning for a sneak peek. The Hollywood Reporter (opens in new tab) revealed that writer-director Noah Hawley, the brains behind Fargo and Legion, is the creator of this exciting new project. AGBO’s Russo Bros., who recently directed Page in The Gray Man for Netflix, is set to assist with the undertaking, which Page will also executive produce.
"AGBO was originally founded to allow us to collaborate with artists we greatly respect and admire. We are very happy to continue to fulfill that pledge by supporting this new film from Noah Hawley and Regé-Jean Page," the company said in a statement.
The plot might be under wraps—and the steamy scenes might be few and far between this go-around—but we're all for a RJP cameo, even if that means he's won't be wooing Daphne Bridgerton. (It's OK, we've truly come to terms with the reason why Regé Jean Page left Bridgerton. We swear!)

Remember those Regé-Jean Page James Bond rumors that began to swirl earlier this year? Many suspected that Simon Bassett, Duke of Hastings, would take on espionage following his departure from the Shonda Rhimes romance. And who better to step into such an iconic role?
"If you’re a Brit, and you do something of any kind of renowned that people regard well, then people start saying the ‘B’ word," Page said on The Tonight Show. "It's like a merit badge, like the 'B' word merit badge."
But he admitted that badge was simply that, and he would not be stepping into 007's shoes. If he can't be our next Bond, we think a heist thriller is the best way to get our blood pumping once more.
For those who can't wait for another romantic adventure, we'll fill you in on everything you need to know about Bridgerton season 2.
