Generally the News Of The World is one of the last places to find legitimate casting rumours, however this time it appears they could be on the money. The British tabloid have reported that Naomie Harris is being considered to star as a Bond girl in ‘Bond 23,’ more specifically she would play Daniel Craig’s “sexy sidekick.” Lending credence to the story more reliable outlets such EW and Indiewire seem to confirm this casting news through their inside sources. EW have been reportedly told by a spokesperson for Eon Productions, Bond’s home, that “Harris has indeed met with the filmmakers, although no deals have yet been struck.”

At this moment in time Daniel Craig and Judi Dench are confirmed to return for ‘Bond 23,’ with Sam Mendes directing. Javier Bardem and Ralph Fiennes have reportedly been offered two separate “darkly complex” roles. I’ve got high hopes for this film, I’m a huge fan of Daniel Craig’s incarnation of James Bond. The UK release date for the eagerly anticipated 23rd James Bond adventure has been pencilled in for Friday, 26th October, 2012, while the film will open in the United States November 9th, 2012. I’m sure we’ll be hearing confirmed casting announcements soon as the film is set to start shooting later this year.
