AceShowbiz - Nearly securing a role in "Casino Royale", Angelina Jolie has been linked once again to a future James Bond movie. According to The Insider, the 33-year-old could be reuniting with her "Tomb Raider" co-star Daniel Craig in "Bond 23" as she has met with the action movie producers over the weekend.
Having expressed her interest in getting involved in the next Bond film after "Quantum of Solace", the "Wanted (2008)" actress reportedly may obtain a recurring character in the feature series, instead of just appearing in one movie since producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli are eager to have her on-board. Nonetheless, it is still unclear what particular part she is linked to at the moment.
Back in 2006, Jolie has been reported to be offered the role of Vesper Lynd in "Casino Royale", which eventually was portrayed by Eva Green. At the time, she was reported to accept the role if Vesper "toughened up", noting that she'd "rather play a baddie than eye candy." However, The Insider explained that the Academy Award-winning actress in the end has to drop out from the negotiations due to scheduling and her pregnancy.
Angelina Jolie is the latest actress whose name has been linked to "Bond 23". Previously, Freida Pinto and Jennifer Aniston have both been rumored to be in the run for the next Bond girl part. Still, neither of the circulating casting speculations has been met with a denial nor confirmation from the actresses' camp or from the studio.
