Britain’s The Sun reports Cruz is a candidate to play the new Bond girl, citing a leaked document from the movie’s studio, Sony.
The newspaper’s source says, “Bond bosses have been chasing her since Daniel became 007 in 2006. But schedules and her pregnancies meant it never materialized. At this stage no one at Sony will confirm it.”
Bardem played the villain in the most recent Bond film, 2012’s Skyfall. 12 Years a Slave actor Chiwetel Ejiofor is rumored to be in the running to play the bad guy in the next 007 flick, which is scheduled to open in November of 2015. Craig will return as Bond.
