Bond 23 - Rumour That Rachel Weisz Is The Big Bad?

MGM seem to have recently dismissed the earlier rumour that Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire) and Olivia Wilde (House, Tron Legacy) were both linked to roles as Bond girls in the newest Bond movie - Bond 23 (no name set yet).

However Cinema Blend have now come forward with an unconfirmed tip-off that Rachel Weisz is under consideration to play the new villain, the head of the Quantum organisation behind the crooked goings-on in Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

The site points out that, in support of this claim, Weisz is friends with Daniel Craig and they're working together on upcoming movie Dream House; she previously had a relationship with Sam Mendes, who is in talks to direct the next Bond film; and the actress has in the past expressed interest in appearing in a Bond movie with Craig.

The rumour comes from a reliable source but the idea is in the very early stages, says Cinema Blend.

I can see Rachel doing pretty well in a role where she plays a strong baddie, I love her to bits and even though many people mock the Mummy films I personally love them and think she did a great job of playing Evie. Hope this is true as it amps up the old girl-power having her as the biggest bad in the room so to speak!
