Is Penélope Cruz the Next Bond Girl? Speculation Surfaces After Casting Memo Is Reportedly Leaked

14 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The name's Cruz. Penélope Cruz. But is the gorgeous girl going to be the next Bond girl? Rumors are, once again, running rampant that the Oscar winner will portray the love interest to Daniel Craig's superspy in the next installment of the 007 franchise, simply known as Bond 24 right now. The casting speculation surfaced after a document was reportedly leaked by Sony Pictures, which apparently lists Cruz as a castmember in the upcoming flick. However, when E! News reached out for a comment, we were simply told, "Studio doesn't comment on rumors." This isn't the first time Cruz's name has come up in connection with Bond 24. Last summer, there were rumors »

Penelope Cruz to Play a Bond Girl? (Dear Lord, We Hope So)

11 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Apparently, last summer there was talk about Penelope Cruz taking a role in Sam Mendes’ follow up to Skyfall. This week in things we hope are true, a French magazine has found proof(?) that the actress will be in the movie. Sony put her name alongside Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, and Naomie Harris on a release update that included Bond 24. It’s possible that it was an administrative error, but if it wasn’t, how mother-effing great is that news?

Given the franchise’s grittier, more character-driven take since Casino Royale and its ability to attract a well-respected director like Mendes, it’s no surprise that they are finding higher caliber actresses willing to play Bond girls. And no offense, Denise Richards, but Academy Award winner Cruz is a major upgrade. She has done her best work in smaller films, working with directors like Ridley Scott, Woody Allen, and her old friend Pedro Almodovar. »

Penelope Cruz to star in Sam Mendes' Bond 24?

11 April 2014 2:11 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

Remember back in June when Penelope Cruz was rumored for Bond 24? A production source later said the rumor was totally false, however, the French site Premiere recently spotted her name on a Sony release update, and it's for Bond 24. Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomi Harris are also listed on the update (no surprise there), however it's odd Cruz's name is on it, and not Chiwetel Ejiofor, who we recently found out is being considered for the villain in the latest »

Penelope Cruz lined up for James Bond 24

10 April 2014 11:25 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 11 Apr 2014 - 07:24

It looks as if Penelope Cruz will be joining Daniel Craig in Sam Mendes' James Bond 24...

Rumours started swirling that Penelope Cruz may be a candidate for a role in James Bond 24 last summer, but at that time, nothing really seemed to come from them. However, there's now fresh evidence that Cruz may indeed by boarding the new 007 adventure.

It came via Premiere magazine in France, who spotted her name in a new release update from Sony. In it, Cruz was listed alongside Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris and Ralph Fiennes in the movie. It's posted a picture of said update on its website, here. 

Nothing has been formally announced by Sony with regards James Bond 24 casting, but with the film set to shoot at the end of the year - with Sam Mendes returning to direct - we can't imagine »

Is Penelope Cruz in Bond 24?

10 April 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Back in the summer of last year there was some talk of Penelope Cruz securing a role in Sam Mendes' developing follow-up to Skyfall. While no more was heard in the immediate weeks and months following, Cruz has now once again been linked to Bond 24, via what seems to be a credible source. The French Premiere magazine has spotted her name next to Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris on a Sony release update.If that's accurate, and not just an admin cock-up within Sony's PR, it marks a pleasing casting symmetry with Skyfall, which starred Cruz' husband Javier Bardem as the villainous Silva.As a Bond-girl - whatever that now means in these slightly more enlightened Bond days - Cruz would be an unusually high-profile choice, and the first Oscar-winner to take such a role (Halle Berry won her Academy Award post-Bond). But she's picking her roles carefully lately, »

Has Penelope Cruz Already Been Cast In Bond 24?

10 April 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Bond 24 gearing up to head into production this summer, casting news is starting to heat up. Last week, we heard that Chiwetel Ejiofor might be playing the lead villain and now, we’re learning that Penelope Cruz may have already joined film in an undisclosed role. It’s important to note that this has not been officially confirmed yet by the studio. Rather, it comes from France’s Premiere magazine, who spotted a listing for the film that included Cruz’s name on the cast list.

Despite the lack of an official confirmation, Cruz’s involvement makes sense. She was rumored for the film last year and her husband, Javier Bardem, played the main baddie in Skyfall.  As for which role she’s in (if she has indeed signed on), last year’s rumor pointed to her being the new Bond girl, which we can definitely see happening. »

Has Penelope Cruz Joined Bond 24?

10 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

This isn't the first time we've heard Penelope Cruz's name associated with Bond 24. Back in June of last year, a source for Yahoo! Movies informed the site that producers were in negotiations with the Spanish actress for a role in the next Bond installment. A few weeks later, a source for Us Weekly shot down those rumors. Now it appears as though Yahoo! Movies was actually right. "The eagle-eyed folks at France's Premiere magazine noticed that in a recent release schedule update from Sony, Penelope Cruz was listed in the cast alongside Daniel Craig , Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris." - If true, this would be rather interesting from the standpoint, Cruz is married to Javier Bardem. He played Skyfall's antagonist, Raoul Silva. Bond 24 will be directed by Sam Mendes ("Skyfall"), from a screenplay written by John Logan. The cast will include: Daniel Craig »

Cruz, Engvoll, Ostrand Join "Bond 24"?

10 April 2014 9:29 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Further on from last week's report that Chiwetel Ejiofor is being considered for the villain comes word that Penelope Cruz may be involved in the next James Bond film.

Cruz has been rumored before, but France's Premiere magazine noticed her inclusion in a recent release schedule update from Sony Pictures. A publicist error? Quite possible.

On top of this, Aftonbladet (via Bleeding Cool) adds that Swedish actresses Ida Engvoll and Disa Östrand have filmed screen tests for the movie.

Penelope Cruz Reportedly Joins 'Bond 24,' More Names Rumored For Film

10 April 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"Star Wars: Episode 7" isn't the only franchise around town working hard to keep details under wraps. "Bond 24" is gearing up to shoot this summer, and with reports last week that Chiwetel Ejiofor was being considered for a villain role, now another big star has come into the casting mix. The eagle-eyed folks at France's Premiere magazine noticed that in a recent release schedule update from Sony, Penelope Cruz was listed in the cast alongside Daniel Craig , Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris. Is it a mistake? Perhaps, and let's not forget that as early as last summer, rumors swirled that Cruz would be joining the film (following her husband Javier Bardem's turn as the villain in "Skyfall"). We're sure confirmation or denials or (more likely) silence will come down from on high soon enough. But any rate, casting does seem to be moving along in earnest. Aftonbladet (via Bleeding »

Once Bitten, "Twice Born"

6 April 2014 5:43 PM, PDT | | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Twice Born tells the story of Gemma (Penelope Cruz), an Italian professor who decides to bring her teenage son, Pietro, to Bosnia to see the country where he was born--and where she fell in love with his now-deceased father. Scenes of the present are intercut with those of the past, when Gemma was a student working on her doctorate in Sarajevo in the early 1980s. There, she was introduced to the passionate American photographer Diego (Emile Hirsch) by her zany Bosnian poet guide, Gojko (Adnan Hasković) kickstarting a steamy romance that leads to marriage but, unfortunately for them, a lack of children.

Angelina Jolie: The Top 25 (Best Supporting Actress)

31 March 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Continuing one with a new weekly series I’m doing…we’re in the midst of talking the top 25 Oscar winners in just about every single one of the Academy Award categories. Aside from the shorts and something a bit harder to rank like Best Sound Mixing as I mentioned previously, I’ll be hitting them all over the coming weeks and months, including of course the big eight categories. Today I’ll be knocking off another of those big ones, the ever compelling and debatable Best Supporting Actress category. As always, depending on the category in question, I may wind up discussing the individual winners I’m citing specifically or just give more of a broad overview of the winners, but I’m keeping it simple early on for now. Like I’ve said each week though, in all honesty, you all mostly just want to see the list anyway, »
