Movements begin to look for actresses and actors to complete the list of artists that will appear in the next James Bond film. One of the candidates to win the coveted title as the "Bond girl" is actress Penelope Cruz.
Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are working on finding who will be under the orders to the director of the new film of James Bond. Sam Mendes is known that could be repeated in the direction and the lead actor will be, once again, Daniel Craig.
Remains to be seen who will be the new villain to give James Bond more of a headache, and, above all, who will be the new Bond girl. It seems that this issue is well underway and, almost certainly, there already is an actress who will become the girl chosen to seduce the secret agent, is none other than spanish actress Penelope Cruz.
If all goes as expected, the Spanish actress will get a new record, will become the oldest actress to embody a Bond girl, because she will be 40 when the shooting starts, beating the 39 years that Honor Blackman had when she played Pussy Galore in "Goldfinger". Plus, Penelope will get the honor of being the first Spanish actress to win the heart of Agent 007, because, sooner or later, Bond ends up falling into the clutches of a beautiful lady.
According to information from the Yahoo Movies site, a person close to the production of the film has stated that "the producers have tried to get Penelope before, but she has never been available because of other commitments. The discussions have been going on for some time and they are working out the contract details now".
The actress is pregnant with her second child which will give birth soon. So that's not a problem to be in the start of filming of the 24th James Bond film, as this would begin in summer.
If Penelope Cruz became the new Bond girl, would be the first Bond marriage in the history of the series of James Bond films, since her husband, actor Javier Bardem, was the one who made life miserable to secret agent in the previous film and box office success, "Skyfall".
