IGN reports that Australian actress Abbie Cornish is rumoured to be one of the contenders for the Bond girl role in 2008’s Bond 22.
In an article published in Australian magazine New Idea, a source citing an unnamed studio insider said: ‘Abbie is perfect because she is not familiar to film audiences, but at the same time people have become intrigued by her. She may not have enjoyed being caught up in a scandal [referring to a supposed affair with Stop Loss co-star Ryan Phillippe] at the time but it certainly helped her profile.’
The magazine also notes that Cornish will supposedly be flying to Singapore for a meeting with James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson.
It’s important to note that all Bond 22 rumours this early on should be taken with a grain of salt. Time will tell…
