Penelope Cruz to star in Sam Mendes' Bond 24?

04.11.2014

Remember back in June when Penelope Cruz was rumored for BOND 24? A production source later said the rumor was totally false, however, the French site Premiere recently spotted her name on a Sony release update, and it's for BOND 24.

Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomi Harris are also listed on the update (no surprise there), however it's odd Cruz's name is on it, and not Chiwetel Ejiofor, who we recently found out is being considered for the villain in the latest Bond flick. Last week when we learned about Sony possibly being interested in Chiwetel Ejiofor for the film, we also found out the next roles to be cast will be two female leads. Perhaps Sony has found one of those leads with Penelope Cruz, but Aftonbladet (via Bleeding Cool) is also reporting foreign actresses Disa Östrand and Ida Engvoll have filmed screen tests for BOND 24.

So has Penelope Cruz actually joined BOND 24, or did someone at Sony make a mistake with the release update? BOND 24 is scheduled to start filming in October, so hopefully we'll know more about what's going on with Penelope Cruz and the new movie in the near future.

BOND 24 will be in theaters on November 6th, 2015.

I get that they want to cast closer to Craig's age, but not her... she can't act in english.

Would be ironic if she was the villain, just like her husband.

We would call that a coincidence. There is nothing Ironic about it.

Please no!

She was the worst thing about Pirates 4, so please don't bring her in to ruin the renewed Bond

If she had the small role in Skyfall I wouldn't have minded

But I think they should go with a relative unknown so the famous face doesn't distract the viewer from the story being told. I'd much rather have Rachel Weisz especially since she and Craig are a real life couple.

I think shes a good actress but it seems too on point for her to be a bond girl. I'm sure she'll make an awesome bond girl but it seems too safe. There are better choices out there.

God no!

She's just plain horrible in her English movies. I hope it's an extra role as the girl behind the bar handing 007 his martini

I don't mind her as an actress, but not for a Bond girl. There are much more better options out there than her.

Yeah I love Cruz but I don't think she's fit for a Bond girl role. Get Hayley Atwell or some other newcomer like Skyfall.

Cruz is an incredible actress when speaking her native Spanish. However, when speaking English, she is terrible and at times, unintelligible.
