Rachel Weisz: James Bond Villian?!

Rachel Weisz is currently being considered to play the lead villain in the upcoming James Bond film, Bond 23!!!

Cinema Blend reports the British actress, who turned 40 earlier this month, could soon play the boss of the evil organization Quantum in the new 007 flick. This would be a very interesting casting choice because

1) Daniel Craig and Rachel are already friends — they are working together on Dream House

2) Rachel had a personal relationship with would-be director Sam Mendes, who recently split with Kate Winslet

3) Rachel is an amazing actress!!!!!

JJ – nice to see the beautiful and talented Rachel on your board…as opposed to the other out of work woman claiming to be an actress/fashionista!

yay to that! i think she would make a great villain, and she has that beauty and class perfect for bond movies.

# 3

Rachel is a plain looking woman who always gets miscast as the beautiful object of desire. Enough of this charade.

@alec:

You sound jealous Alex, which i find pretty pathetic. By the way, met Rachel Weisz in Torondo last month and she was really nice and more beautiful in person.

# 5

This would work out perfectly in my opinion!!! Can’t wait!!!

# 6

Perfect casting, Weisz is a great actress and beautiful as well.

# 7

This would be the best Bond film ever, love Rachel Weisz.

Rachel said
“I’ve been filming with Daniel in Toronto. We’ve been getting on really well and yet I still haven’t had an offer to be a Bond girl — but if he asks me, I’d definitely do it.”

seriously?

Rachel Weisz is such an incredible and versatile actress, probably the best we have today. If this is true, i would be first in line opening day.

There you have it folks! According to the multiple comments posted undoubtedly by her publicist’s office, Rachel is endlessly talented and beautiful. Second only perhaps to the legendary beauty, Maggie Gyllenhaal.

I would love to see her play a villain, it would be a nice change. Will wait and see.

@#4
really? because when I saw her in person she just looked hairy

Great actress and a great choice., i would love this see it when it comes out. Hopefully it would be better than the last Bond film.

I would love for this to happen, its about time we got a real actress for a Bond film other than Judie Dench. Rachel Weisz as the bad guy would be a great twist to the series.

Love Rachel Weisz and i love Bond films, this just made my day:) Can’t wait to see it.

I like Rachel Weisz.
Excellent actress.
I say go for it.
She really made The Mummy movies awesome.

@Danny:

Anything would be better than the last Bond movie. Casting Rachel Weisz however would be a selling point for me and probably bring back some of the class of the other films. Beauty brains and sass, Rachel would kick butt as the villain.

LOVE LOVE the idea of a strong female villain in the series. I hope this will work out.

What a step down from Sophie Marceau. I suppose Weisz can make fugly gals feel good about themselves though.

If this happens, i will buy my movie ticket now. Rachel Weisz is awsome.

@jerry89:

A step down? Talk about a major step up. Rachel can act.

If anyone wants to know/talk, I am staying at the other thread…jj can’t get hockey pictures of Dan? All other celebs have up to date photos…

Her villain name should be the Unibrow. Her films make no money yet she keeps getting cast.

This would be great if its true, Rachel Weisz is my favorite actress.

how about Saffron Burrows or Monica Bellucci instead. they’re both gorgeous and talented.
