1. Rumour Of The Week: Angelina Jolie For 'Bond 23'?

    By Devin Zydel on 2009-03-23

    ‘Sean Connery Will Be Back To Play The Villain!’ … ‘Gulshan Grover Lands Royale Villain Role’ … ‘Aishwarya Rai Is The Latest Bond Girl’ … and the list goes on.

    Whenever a new James Bond film is in the early stages of development, the outlandish rumours come with the territory. Are they almost always complete nonsense? Sure, but they keep on coming nonetheless.

    Following up the Danny Boyle directing denial, the current rumour of the week comes courtesy of celebrity news and gossip hub The Insider. Citing a tip from Buzz Newsroom, they pose the question: will Angelina Jolie be signing up for Bond 23?

    The tip states:

    Angelina Jolie has been interested in being involved with Bond, James Bond, for quite some time. She came THIS CLOSE to signing on to Casino Royale with Daniel Craig–but dropped out of negotiations due to scheduling and her pregnancy at the time. Our source tells us Mrs. Pitt met with Bond producers over the weekend, expressing her interest in joining the franchise. The only hitch, Angelina would be a reoccurring character, instead of just appearing in one movie. With her Tomb Raider franchise dead, and being killed off in Wanted–Angie seeks a solid financial property to revisit every few years. An easy payday indeed! Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are very eager to have Angie on board. But, will they pay what she’s asking?
