The mainstream press in India reported that Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto has signed up to appear in the next James Bond film opposite Daniel Craig, who plays the role of James Bond. But the website Breaking News Online reports that Pinto has denied ‘reports that she has signed a multi-million pound deal to be the next Bond Girl’. The site also reports that her ‘official spokesperson said that she has not been approached to be part of the next James Bond film’.
Freida Pinto’s films in post production stage are ‘Miral’ and the tentatively titled ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’. ‘Miral’, directed by Julian Schnabel, features Willem Dafoe, Freida Pinto and Hiam Abbass. ‘You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger’ is written and directed by Woody Allen featuring Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Anthony Hopkins, Freida Pinto and Naomi Watts. Both the films are tentatively scheduled for release in 2010.
She has reportedly signed up also for 'Dawn of War', a Greek mythological film, produced by Mark Canton and directed by Tarsem Singh, starring Henry Cavill opposite her. The film is tentatively scheduled for 2011.
