Helena Bonham-Carter is reportedly at the top of a short list of actresses that are being eyed to play the next villain in the James Bond franchise.
The next Bond film, which will be Daniel Craig’s final turn as 007, is slated to begin production this December. The UK Newspaper, The Mirror, reports that our favorite British spy will be going up against a female villain and that even though there are other actresses in the running for the role, Bonham-Carter is reportedly the preferred choice.
??“Everyone thinks Angelina Jolie is going to get the part but bosses want Helena more. At the moment they are just finalizing the cast.”
Regardless of who ends up winning the role, if the next Bond villain is a woman then it will be the first time since 1999’s The World Is Not Enough that pits James Bond against a female adversary. It will also be the third female main villain in the entire franchise’s history.
