I've said this last time, I know, but I would really like Christina Hendricks as female lead.  ....REALLY want her for the lead!

Honestly as weird as this may sound I always have thought pre-Craig that Rachel Weisz would make a great Bond girl. And even as she is older she still would.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

I'd also love for Christina Hendricks to appear in a Bond film. The closest we've got is her commercial with Brosnan. We haven't had the American sass since Christmas Jones, and I'd love to see something like that again (the Tiffany Case mould).

Weisz may have made a great Vesper back in the day come to think of it. Don't think her being a Bond girl would happen now.

Film: Tomorrow Never Dies | Girl: Teresa di Vicenzo | Villain: Max Zorin | Car: Aston Martin Volante | Novel: You Only Live Twice | Bond: Sir Sean Connery

This may be of interest for some suggestions.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

I think if Tom Hiddleston is the new Bond then Taylor Swift should sing the theme song. A non-crossover orchestral, with the big orchestral sound of   "Nobody Lives Forever". Or she could just sing Bad Blood......hey!

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

Listening to the Boris Blank (he of Yello) album electrified I think he could do a terrific job very cinematic. Come to think of it Yello could do a great theme song and Blank could do the score. A wonderful mix of lush techno and honeyed baritone. It will never happen of course, well get another pasty faced piece of pop fodder like Smith.

This is a PR poster for War & Peace. I think the skull make Lily James look rather Bondian:

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

I want another Bond theme that rocks. So I would like to see a band like Imagine Dragons or something like that sing one. I've had my fill of the slower themes for a while.

1, GE 2, CR 3, SF 4, TWINE 5, Spectre 6, TMWTGG 7, DAD 8, LALD 9, AVTAK 10, LTK 11, Octopussy 12, Moonraker 13, TLD 14, GF 15, QOS 16, Tomorrow 17, FYEO 18. TSWLM Not seen much: Dr. No, Russia, Thunderball, Twice, Majesty.

1: Brosnan 2: Craig 3: Moore 4: Dalton 5: Connery and 6: Lazenby

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

With DC being 50 next time round, I would like to see an older Bond Girl. Think Diane Kruger would be great. Please no 25 year old, it just feels a bit awkward.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

Kate Beckinsale is stunning

She's now 44 and puts some 25 year olds in the shade,  I wouldn't be unhappy if she was cast.

It was either that.....or the priesthood

I always thought, perhaps weirdly, she'd be a great villain.

I have modeled a character after her in my current (in-progress) novel. She is a stunner.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

Daniel Craig is too old.

So, We need a woman like Charlize Theron.

Would love her as main female in 25.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

I would much prefer unknown talent, or at least someone who is new to the British and American audience.
Using a famous American actress to Bond movies seldom goes well (Denise Richards, Halle Barry, Terri Hatcher.)
It also looks like Charlize Theron may be creating her spy/action franchise in "Atomic Blonde". She basicly  said "Bring it on Bond!" to a movie magazine.

Kathryn Winnick 39 years old and IMO absolutely stunning

I fully agree! The unknowns from more exotic places are more interesting. Maybe someone from a really exotic place is like the depths of Africa or the mountains of Asia! Someone who is so different from Bond and who could add something very unique.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

Theme song? Sade
Bond Girl?
Lower age range: Scarlett Johansson (I know, it will never happen...)
proper one: Lucy Liu. I find her incredibly hot, her exoticism is out of discussion and there's her declaration of love to the saga in Lucky Number Slevin...
A little bit over range: Liz Hurley (She still looks H-O-T and she is also E-V-I-L) or, why not? Sade herself

As much as I wanted to love it, ATOMIC BLONDE is a non-starter as a franchise. DOA.

Re: Bond girls / artists for theme song

I missed it, but big Hollywood actresses as Bond Girls is a bad idea. Bond movies should discover new talent and launch international careers, not be reliable on movie stars.

Beyoncé Knowles's name has popped up. If true, I'd not be disappointed...

Neither would I. But it seems some members here are very much against it, and I simply can't understand why.
