Is Naomie Harris Headed To 'James Bond 23'?

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist June 6, 2011 at 5:20AM

After breaking through in 2002 in Danny Boyle‘s “28 Days Later," Naomie Harris seems poised for big things. She's landed roles in a number of Hollywood movies including a couple "Pirates Of The Caribbean" films, “Miami Vice,” “Street Kings,” "Ninja Assassin" and most recently (and notably), had a role in the critically acclaimed "The First Grader." Earlier this year, she was briefly rumored for a part in the currently delayed "The Dark Tower" mega franchise but another blockbuster series appears to be interested in the actress.

After breaking through in 2002 in Danny Boyle‘s “28 Days Later," Naomie Harris seems poised for big things. She's landed roles in a number of Hollywood movies including a couple "Pirates Of The Caribbean" films, “Miami Vice,” “Street Kings,” "Ninja Assassin" and most recently (and notably), had a role in the critically acclaimed "The First Grader." Earlier this year, she was briefly rumored for a part in the currently delayed "The Dark Tower" mega franchise but another blockbuster series appears to be interested in the actress.

Shadow & Act has revealed that an item first dropped in the Brit tabloid rag News Of The World may actually have some substance behind it. The paper reported that Harris "will be Daniel Craig’s sexy sidekick in the soon-to-be filmed new 007 movie” but the actress herself is playing the cards a bit more close to the chest. In UK interviews for "The First Grader," she has confirmed she has been talking with "James Bond 23" producers but wouldn't reveal for which role or even if she will take it or if she's been offered the part.

Harris is a great talent and we'd hate to see her kind of wasted in a rote Bond girl role, but if it's a meatier female character she'd be a great addition to the cast. But, as it usually goes with Bond franchise, more names will start being tossed around as casting gears up. Filming is expected to start this fall with Sam Mendes directing. The still untitled "James Bond 23" will hit U.K. cinemas first on October 26, 2012 with a U.S. release following on November 9, 2012.
