    By daniel on 2002-07-10

    MGM have just released a 'press release' about Madonna's involvement in Die Another Day. The press release does make a mention of her cameo in Die Another Day, however, it states that the cameo role remains "top secret".

    I expect that the press release will appear on the official site sometime soon.

    Thanks to 'Beamer' for helping get the press release through to us.
