Are Freida Pinto and Olivia Wilde Your Latest Bond Girls?

Sure why not, according to this Bang Showbiz article on Yahoo, which quotes a source as saying new Bond director Sam Mendes has selected his Bond girls in Freida Pinto (“Slumdog Millionaire”), while Olivia Wilde (the upcoming “Tron” sequel, as well as TV’s “House”) is also being approached to play a double-crossing UN babe. Their source also adds that Peter Morgan (“The Queen”) is currently writing the script, which will take Bond (a returning Daniel Craig) to, of all places, Afghanistan. No doubt that’s just one of many places Bond will be hopping to and fro, being the International Man of Mystery type.

Of course, as their source Bang Showbiz (Bang Showbiz???) quotes the always questionable “Daily Mirror” in the UK, so do take it with a large helping of grain.

    OHH GOOD GOD!! Is there enough room for that much sexy on screen? LOL! But yeah, these two have been rumored forever. Wilde has been rumored for the past two bond films and Pinto was rumored because of here connection to Danny Boyle back when “Slumdog” was hitting its stride. If you remember Danny Boyle was originally attached to direct Quantum of Solace and then this upcoming one. Before he totally jumped ship of course. It would be nice, but like you said, i really don’t think this has much validity.
