Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

Here's hoping they add a high-class actress as one of the Bond girls. Dare I hope for Rachel Weisz? Or is she no longer considered "hot enough" anymore?

Not really my type, but definitely hot!

As long as they don't trot Angelina Jolie out I'll be ok...

On the whole the better Bond girls have always been the least known ones. Of course having said that Diana Rigg is my all time favourite Bond girl and she was hardly unkown.

On the whole though I'd rather a Maryam D'abo, Famke Janssen or an Izabella Scorupco, than a Teri Hatcher, Halle Berry or a Denise Richards...

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

Rachel Weisz would be an ironic choice for a Bond girl since she and Daniel Craig are now married and of course have already worked together in this year's horror flick "Dream House" (the movie where they met and fell in love during production). I don't see that happening, although that would be pretty awesome.

She's also very good friends with Mendes, and apparently she'd jump at the chance.

Heaven forbid 007 should ever have a relationship with someone his own age though...

I completely agree, but I still hope for someone like Rachel Weisz.

Rachel Weisz is actually co-starring in The Bourne Legacy, which might make her unavailable for the next James Bond film. Of course, Albert Finney is also starring in Legacy as well as the next Bond flick, so I guess anything is possible.

Bardem, Fiennes, Finney. Even if we didn't already have Craig and Dench, this would probably be a contender for strongest Bond cast ever. Not to mention Mendes behind the camera.
This has to be the most prestigious line-up for a James Bond film in a long time.

I hope this ushers in a new era where more A list actors do Bond movies.

Sort of like comic book movies now.

Re: "James Bond 23" officially slated for 2012!

^ Indeed, why not?

I remember being pleasantly surprised when the cast for Goldeneye was announced. People like Judi Dench, Robbie Coltrane and Sean Bean were much better known than the (often) little-known actors who populated the Connery, Moore and Dalton movies. Sure, there were exceptions (Chrisses Walken or Lee, Anthony Zerbe, Louis Jourdan etc) but by and large, the actor playing Bond was the best known actor, indeed the only well-known actor, in the movie.

Since then, the casts have continued to be prestigious, though the casts for CR and QoS were arguably less starry than the Brosnan era, but this has to be the best one yet.

^ But spread over quite a few movies. You rarely got more than two big names in one movie. And OHMSS had Rigg and a pre-Kojak Savalas but an unknown in the lead.

I thought I'd heard something about her being in Bond 23. That YouTube channel known for the big movie updates....

I realize it's something of a recurring gag to dump on Angelina Jolie, for some strange reason...but what's wrong with her being in a Bond film?

Much as with Halle Berry I just think she's too big/would demand too much for the role. I know they wanted her for CR and I'm glad they didn't get her. Eva Green wasn't perfect as Vesper but she was much better than I suspect Jolie could have been (I wish Rose Byrne had got it personally), plus she could have potentially overhsadowed Craig who was a bit of an unknown quantity back then. I understand why they were doing it, for similar reasons they cast Rigg in 69, but I just think it would have become all about Jolie.

She probably would work much better now that Craig is an established Hollywood star but I'd still rather an unknown or someone a bit less A-list like Weisz.
