Said spotted by the producers during the casting for 'Quantum of Solace', 'Slumdog Millionaire' beauty Freida Pinto has reportedly been invited to a screen test for the next James Bond movie.

There is a chance that "Slumdog Millionaire" beauty, Freida Pinto, ends up being the new Bond girl in "Bond 23". The Sun recently broke out that executive producer Barbara Broccoli is eager to have the 24-year-old joining the cast of the next installment for the 007 agent movie series, and that Pinto has been invited to a screen test.

Giving more info on the matter, the trade quoted a source who explained that the actress has caught the producers' attention since "Quantum of Solace" casting. "Freida came to the attention of the Bond team when they were casting Quantum of Solace," the source noted. "She was too young at the time to have a part as a love interest for a secret agent. But she has blossomed into an incredibly stunning young woman and would look perfect on Daniel Craig's arm."

Speculations on Pinto's possible involvement with the super agent movie came not long after "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle was reported to have been offered the opportunity to direct the next James Bond movie, a rumor which was quickly denied by Boyle himself. Nonetheless, The Sun's source claimed, "Danny Boyle is favourite to take the helm of the next movie, which would increase Freida's chances of a starring role."

Making her big break with her Latika role in "Slumdog Millionaire", Freida Pinto is an Indian actress and professional model. For her performance as the girl whom Dev Patel's Jamal is in love with, she received a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 62nd BAFTA Awards. Next, Pinto will be seen starring alongside Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, and Naomi Watts for a Woody Allen movie, "Untitled Woody Allen Project".
