Penelope Cruz as New Bond Girl in BOND 24?

After the huge success of "Skyfall", lead by the wonderful Sam Mendes as the helm, Sony and MGM were eager to get the next picture in motion. After Mendes reportedly turned down the chance to direct "Bond 24", the next film in the franchise, the studio is now willing to wait for his previous stage commitment to finish, in order to bring him back. While nothing has been confirmed on this front, it does seem likely that he will return since they are being so flexible and persistent.

With this news, come the more interesting set. Actress Penelope Cruz is in talks to become the next Bond girl. At the age of 40, she will be the oldest Bond girl in the franchise, taking the reigns over for Honor Blackman, who was 39 when she portrayed Pussy Galore in "Goldfinger".

Apparently the producers have had their eye on Penelope for some time and now, it looks like they may actually lock down their lady. A source close to the production stated, "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."

Unless further contracts are made, "Bond 24" will mark Daniel Craig's last time reprising the suave spy. Will Cruz be the last Bond girl he will appear alongside? Only time will tell how these pending pieces will fall into place, but we'll keep you posted as the story develops.

What do you think of Cruz as the next Bond girl? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
