Could Cara Delevingne be the next Bond Girl? The model turned actress has apparently caught the eye of 007 executives to play a kick-ass, strong character. Not that they would ever announce that they were looking to cast a weak frail character.
A studio source told the newspaper The Mirror: ‘Cara’s value really has exploded in a short time in Hollywood. ‘They feel she could play a fierce spy working alongside the main protagonist. Daniel Craig is believed to be ‘coming round’ to the idea of starring in a fifth film. Bond producer Barbara Broccoli is thought to have secured the 49-year-old actor for the next 007 movie, alongside singer Adele for another iconic theme tune.
Cara made her big screen debut in the 2012 adaptation of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. She got her first starring role in 2015 playing Margo Roth Spiegelman in the adaptation of John Green’s teen novel Paper Towns. She broke into the world of Hollywood blockbusters when she played the Enchantress in 2016´s critically slammed Suicide Squad, but according to Delevingne herself she will not be reprising her villainous role in the sequel.
‘It was a life-changing experience, and of course I’d do another one, but I don’t think it would make sense for the character,’ she told USA Today.
Delevingne´s next film “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” directed by Luc Besson is making its theatre debut this weekend. The reviews seem to be pretty much split down the middle , with a little more positive than negative feedback. Its everything from MUST SEE to DONT BOTHER. Meanwhile its box-office competition , the Nolan directed World War 2 film DUNKIRK is getting rave reviews, with there even being talk of Oscar contendership. But it remains to be seen if the movie going public will choose a gritty war movie over a sci fi spectacle.
As far as Im concerned Cara is a great choice to play a “Bond girl” , and hope they are serious about the part not being just eye candy for the 50 year old Craig. I would also really like to see Dave Bautista return. Wrestler train their necks really hard, so hey Hinx could have lived right ? Although, i do believe Daniel Craig´s reason for never wanting to do another Bond movie was the condition he found himself in after being beaten to a pulp over several days by Dave. Just my thoughts.
What do you think ? Is she a good choice for Bond ? write me a postcard and let me know.
